This movie was hilarious for a Hammer film, had me laughing the whole time. I wouldn't say it's the worst Hammer I've seen, but pretty damn close. Very 70's, very hokey, and nice & cheesy are the best things I can find to say here. Of course, since it's a Hammer film, it's still way better than the shit making it to theaters today. Basically, Drac is alive and well, living in London, planning to kill off the world with a new strain the plague he has brainwashed some top scientist into creating. The stuff does a nasty number on one of the smart guys in the end too, yuck! Drac's old nemesis Van Hesling comes along to put a stop to it as always, luring the vampire into a Hawthorne tree and then staking him out. The Vampire brides are cool, the bad looking suede and wool trimmed vests the motorcycle riding roughies working for Dracula wear are not. Lee and Cushing do what they do best, making it all watchable even after 30 years. Still, this film just doesn't work as well as Hammer's other Vampire flicks, least not to me.
