In London in the 1970s, Scotland Yard police investigators think they have uncovered a case of vampirism.

The original UK cinema print was cut by the BBFC to heavily edit the opening sacrifice scene, 2 staking scenes and the electrocution of a guard (the proposed cuts to the shooting of Torrence were never made). For the video release the same cut print was submitted and cut by a further 1 sec to remove a shot of Jane's exposed breast being pierced with a stake. See more »
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!
