Three rich old men revive Dracula in their quest for indulgence in earthly pleasures. They soon realise that they should have left Dracula well alone.

Christopher Lee once again stars as the Count in this gorgeously mounted gothic delight from Hammer. While we should never need justification for screening a classic like this, this year we’re thrilled that the film’s main protagonist is none other than our guest of honour Linda Hayden.

Being only her second feature film, followed swiftly after by Blood on Satan’s Claw, these two films helped to cement Linda Hayden’s place as a much loved leading actress in British horror cinema.
