Storyline

In London in the 1970s, Scotland Yard police investigators think they have uncovered a case of vampirism. They call in an expert vampire researcher named Van Helsing (a descendant of the great vampire-hunter himself, no less) to help them put a stop to these hideous crimes. It becomes apparent that the culprit is Count Dracula himself, disguised as a reclusive property developer, but secretly plotting to unleash a fatal virus upon the world.

Count Dracula Speaks!
29 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i bought this as a double feature from east west video/DVD at the local dollar store,the second feature is torture chamber(aka;torture chamber of Dr.sadism)anyway its the last time the great Christopher lee played Dracula.and the last time peter Cushing played his Nemesis van helsing. well the count now has a satanic cult of followers that sacrifice naked women and etc;so you know this is an r rated movie right.its a pretty good hammer feature,i believe Christopher lee was getting tired of playing count Dracula and wanted to end the series.and i think Christopher lee is one of the greatest actors around,he's a legend like Boris Karloff,Bela Lugosi,Vincent price,and Lon Chaney Sr and Jr.i would'nt rate this as the best Dracula movie but its good none the less. this has 2 different titles.in a 5o movie horror collection,you'll see the satanic rites of Dracula and count Dracula and his vampire brides. they are both the same movie,so the 50 movie collection as seen on TV is really 49 movies,i did the math.oh well i guess they goofed.i give count Dracula and his vampire brides 8 out of 10.Christopher lee you rule.
