Dracula: The Dark Prince
11 January 2014
Excerpt: Independent distributor Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment have released the low budget gothic horror "Dracula: The Dark Prince" in the United Kingdom at an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (original aspect ratio is 1.85:1). The film uses quite a large proportion of dark locations.
Summary: For those who can’t or don’t want to import, this domestic release of Dracula: Prince Of Darkness is the next best thing to the Studio Canal version. As to the movie itself, it’s a great slice of vintage Hammer horror with a fantastic performance from Lee and good supporting work by everyone else.
Conclusion: With Lee once again reprising his most famous role, until The Lord of the Rings at least, this hammer Horror tries to recreate the magic of his first attempts at the role. Although Lee is not the problem, the film is let down by a narrative without direction or motivation.
