Dracula – Prince of Darkness Review: Silent But Deadly

Dracula: Prince of Darkness on Blu-ray Available From 5th March

Sparkly Twilight vampires might be all the rage right now but you just can’t beat a good old fashioned Dracula movie.  Hammer’s classic vampire movie, Dracula Prince of Darkness, is released on Blu-ray this month and thanks to a fantastic restoration job, the lure of the legendary bloodsucker is as strong as ever.  

The Kents are Alan and Charles, two well-to-do brothers and their wives, Helen and Diana, travelling in the shadow of the Carpathian Mountains.  As the classic Dracula tropes dictate they of course stop off at a tavern only to be warned that they should avoid visiting a particular castle (guess whose?).  Do It!
