Goofs

The cross that the Monsignor takes from the church is clearly made of wood with gold foil and/or paint (apparent from the ease with which he handles it, and also when it is seen in close-up as he converses with the frightened Priest on the mountainside). However, when it falls from the cliff in the final sequence, the (over-dubbed) sound it makes as it hits the rocks suggests it to be made of solid metal. See more »

fairly good Hammer Dracula entry
13 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

Early on, "Dracula Has Risen from the Grave" made me feel uneasy... From the scenes of a Monsignor (Rupert Davies) traveling with a priest to perform an exorcism on Castle Dracula in order to bring the superstitious (ha!) congregation back to church on Sunday, to the romantic subplot between a scholarly baker and the Monsignor's daughter, and a distinct lack of Drac, I began to wonder if I was being shortchanged by a title that looked to just capitalize on the success of the Hammer Dracula films. However, the more I kept with it, the more I enjoyed "Grave"--the above-mentioned plot threads, which at first seem corny, are interwoven with delicate skill by director Freddie Francis; the characters and their conflicts are surprisingly endearing (including an angle that brings atheism into the mix); and Christopher Lee is in fine form as the brooding, red-eyed Count (though the production suffers from the absence of frequent co-star Peter Cushing).
