Goofs

This movie supposedly takes place one year after "Dracula - Prince Of Darkness". In "Horror Of Dracula", the story takes place, according to Jonathan Harker's diary, somewhere around 1887. In "Dracula - Prince Of Darkness", Father Sandor claims that it is about 10 years since Dracula's destruction, i.e. about 1897. Thus, "Dracula Has Risen From The Grave" should take place in 1898 if a year has passed. However, the inscription-plate on the coffin which the priest steals for Dracula gives the dates of Gisela Heinz's life as 1885-1905 - several years *after* the apparent setting. Consistency can only be maintained if we assume that in "Prince of Darkness", Father Sandor was speaking loosely, and meant *over* ten years had passed. See more »

You Can't Keep a Good Vampire Down
1 November 2013 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Great Gothic Hammer horror. One of the better Dracula sequels and one of director Freddie Francis' best. It has a lot of the elements you expect and appreciate from Hammer: solid actors, great sets, quality direction, beautiful and vivacious young women. The plot is relatively simple: Dracula wants revenge and pretty blonde Veronica Carlson but her Monsignor uncle and loser boyfriend have a thing or two to say about that. There's also some interesting additions to the mythology where belief vs atheism is concerned. It all makes for a very entertaining sequel full of many familiar and proved effective Hammer staples, with several new ones as well.
