Who will his bride be tonight?
After Jonathan Harker attacks Dracula at his castle (apparently somewhere in Germany), the vampire travels to a nearby city, where he preys on the family of Harker's fiancée. The only one who may be able to protect them is Dr. van Helsing, Harker's friend and fellow-student of vampires, who is determined to destroy Dracula, whatever the cost.

C. Le is the best Dracula. The film is still good

Despite the many parodies since the release of the Hammer Dracula films that have dulled the horror and creepiness, the film is still strong, due to both Cushing and Lee. The film uses elements of the Stoker novel, but makes some surprising alterations from the start, most of which work quite well. Lee is still an imposing presence from his first introduction, and whilst the fight scenes are a little creaky compared to modern standards, it is Lee that ensures the film still has a creepy feel to it, shifting effortlessly from the brooding suave Count to an animalistic creature when he attacks.
