“Depraved Lord Courtley (Bates) involves three other rich Victorian thrill-seekers in the resurrection of the blood-sucking Count (Lee), by means of an elaborate ritual performed in a derelict church. Imaginatively realised and shot with flamboyant style, the ritual ends with Courtley’s death and the flight of the three others, setting the scene for a lurid tale in which Dracula wreaks revenge on the fugitives by seducing and corrupting their daughters… [the film’s] variation on the idea of the decadent, aristocratic Dracula’s threat to the sanctity of the Victorian middle class family highlights an intriguing aspect of Hammer’s vampire mythology.” – Time Out (London)
