The music used in the church resurrection scene is "The Black Mass: An Electric Storm in Hell" from the 1969 album "An Electric Storm" by White Noise. The group themselves were an experimental space-age rock combo formed by David Vorhaus and featuring Delia Derbyshire & Brian Hodgson from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. See more »
What can I say about this movie? Yes it is dreadful, but, you have to watch it. I believe that the movie has been unfairly maligned by many critics, but it really isn't that bad. Christopher Lee looks very out of place in the movie, as he faithfully sticks to his original interpretation of count Dracula, when he is surrounded by a new environment. I have to mention Caroline Munro in this comment, as her character, despite the fact she isn't even in 1/3 of the movie, is one of the best ones there.
