Every night for 600 years he rises from his coffin-bed to seek the warmblood he needs to keep himself alive! Investigating the death of his friend Jonathan Harker--apparently the victim of a bloodsucking vampire--Doctor Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) discovers a diary incriminating Count Dracula (Christopher Lee). But even as Van Helsing realizes the horrifying truth, Dracula stalks Harker's fiancée, Lucy (Carol Nash), trapping her tortured soul in the terrifying force of his hypnotic power--and only Van Helsing may be strong enough to save her by exorcising the Horror of Dracula.

Critics Consensus: Trading gore for grandeur, Horror of Dracula marks an impressive turn for inveterate Christopher Lee as the titular vampire, and a typical Hammer mood that makes aristocracy quite sexy.
