We told you to keep the noise down! Now look who you woke up!, 19 August 2004
Author: GroovyDoom from Haddonfield, IL

Dracula is a pretty light sleeper, because apparently all it takes is a little blood in the oral area to start a whole new movie. Through an unfortunate coincidence, blood gets into the mouth of Dracula's dormant body, trapped beneath the ice outside his castle, and voila--Dracula has risen from the grave. Well, actually it's more like he rose from the creek. But anyway.

I remember this most fondly of all the Hammer Dracula films, on a par with the original "Horror of Dracula". This episode in the decades-long Dracula series finds Drac ticked off at a local Monsignor who has placed a large crucifix on the doors of his castle. He's also "exorcised" the place, so it's not like Dracula can even slip in through a window or something. Irritated in every capacity, Dracula sets out for revenge. When he sees the Monsignor's lovely niece, he decides to victimize her--that way he can get his freak on AND get revenge at the same time. Clever!

"Dracula Has Risen From The Grave" features some of the best gothic horror sets I've ever seen, including several sequences that take place along the rooftops of the village. Simply gorgeous visuals, if a little campy at times. Christopher Lee is in top form, as usual, but it sure would have been great if they could have had him in the movie more (Chris's fee was pretty high around this time, so the later Hammer Dracula films began to feature him less and less). Terrific fun, especially late at night!
