A waste of Cushing and Lee, 15 July 2006
Author: Aba74 from United States

This is the worst of the Dracula's Cushing and Lee films. A updated (1974)version with needless nudity, blood,gore and a Satanic cult etc. The plot centers around a Devil cult. I guess this gives them the right to sarcifice nude virgins? The police is involve in a sting to bring the cult down which may reach as far as the British government. Now you ask what does this has to do with a vampire, nothing really. The time Lee spends on screen... if you blink you're will miss him. A frail looking Cushing is aided by his granddaughter to get the devil cult and vampires that are kept in the basement! Does this plot sound stupid--- believe me it is. A bad decision to try to modernize the franchise. Fans would do well to not waste time or money on this one!
