Goofs

The scene in which Zena is walking along the road at nighttime, just before the coach chases her: as the scene fades in, there is an audible "click" and the light suddenly changes (probably due to the cameraman adjusting the day-for-night filter). Alternatively this could be because dissolves at this time were done by creating a new, double-exposure clip that would be edited into the film. Since this clip would be one further generation removed from the negative, going in and out of dissolves would often include a noticeable change in picture quality, which is what the change in light is here-you can see the same change in light at the *start* of the same dissolve, in the previous shot. There is a click (or more accurately a clunk) on the soundtrack when this dissolve ends, at the moment it cuts out of the dissolve and the light changes, but it seems to be coincidental. If using a filter to help achieve day-for-night, it's highly unlikely that anyone would be putting it on or adjusting it in the middle of a take, or that the sound of it happening would make it onto the film's soundtrack.

"Bring her to ME!"
5 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This picks up one year after "Dracula--Prince of Drakness". Dracula (Christopher Lee) is dead but is accidentally brought back to life. Monsignor Ernst (Rupert Davies) has nailed a cross on Dracula's castle door. For revenge Dracula goes after his beautiful niece Maria (Veronica Carlson). But Maria's boyfriend Paul (Barry Andrews) is ready to fight back.

This one starts right off with a bang--within the first 5 minutes we get plenty of blood and a nice closeup of vicious fang wounds in a victims neck. It gets your attention. One of the better Hammer Dracula films. The violence is pretty strong (for 1968) but seems kind of silly today. At one point Dracula PULLS a stake out of his heart with plenty of blood just pouring out. I mean come on! It doesn't help that the blood looks like ketchup and his shirt is totally dry right after he removes it. There are plenty of continuity errors in this one--the top two have Dracula's reflection being shown and a priest's head wound comes and goes throughout the movie. Also it has the Hammer trademark of some dreadful day for night shooting and a thundering score.

Still this is well done with good acting (by Lee especially), a strong emphasis on religion and a strange brown border on the screen whenever Dracula is shown. The Warner DVD that came out a few years ago is just great--good picture quality, strong color and great sound. It also carries the G rating this was awarded in 1968! All kidding aside this is NOT a G rated film but I don't think it's that bad. The violence is pretty restrained by todays standards and it would probably get by with a PG. I give this an 8.
