Best Hammer Dracula Sequel
18 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dracula Has Risen From The Grave has always been one of my favourite movies. In so many ways it is the quintessential Hammer horror film. It has all of the elements which have made me a fan of the Studio. The fairy-tale Central European setting , the Gothic Castle Dracula with the quaint little village huddling under it's menacing presence, Christopher Lee as the Count , Veronica Carlson as the flaxen-haired maiden threatened by the powers of darkness, the iconography of the crucifixes, garlic and rituals. But it has much more than that .

One of Freddy Francis' best outings , DHRFTG has lashings of atmosphere, greatly enhanced by an exceptional score by James Bernard .The usual Hammer issue with day-for-night photography aside , Arthur Grant's cinematography is excellent, giving the Production that unique Hammer "look" which so often belied the minuscule budgets the company operated within.

The performances are several notches above the Hammer average. The young leads acquit themselves admirably . Barry Andrews is much more animated than is usual for the *romantic hero" of British Gothic movies and Veronica Carlson is far from being merely the feeble screaming heroine. While Lee has few lines as Dracula, he doesn't need many words to dominate every scene he graces with his commanding presence. Throw in Rupert Davies reprising his pompous ,but kindly and avuncular priest from Witchfinder General ( 1968) and you have a very superior cast indeed.

It is the unusually complex thematic elements and the way in which they are explored that makes "Risen From The Grave " more than just another genre entry for me. The movie digs deeper into spiritual, psychological and sexual layers than is customary in a Hammer film .Importantly it deals with more than just the Manichean struggle between Good and Evil. We see the tortured priest whom Graves' Monsignor has taken under his wing ,struggle with his fears and doubts . Atheism enters the arena in the form of student Paul who must find his faith to prepare himself for the final, epic struggle , by far the most visually and emotionally stunning of climaxes seen in any Dracula movie.

Never before has the sensual power of Dracula been so effectively foregrounded . In his first encounter with the virtuous Maria, we see her grip a childhood doll before embracing adult sexuality and pushing the toy from her bed. Similarly, we observe the Count draw the besotted Zena ,like a moth, quite literally , to the flame.

On it's release , this, the second Hammer Dracula sequel ,( if one discounts "Brides" ) , was treated with a large measure of contempt by those critics who deigned to review it. I have been deeply gratified to witness the films improving reputation over recent years . A Blu-ray release with all the appropriate extras would seem to have been delayed by copyright issues and is now well over-due.
