Year: 1958
Genre: Drama and Horror
Conclusion: 4/5
In this Christopher Lee certainly made the role of Dracula his and gives one of his most powerful performances of his whole career. In the whole entire film Christopher Lee only has a meagre 13 lines and only has seven minutes of screen-time. A terrific performance from Peter Cushing. The most famous line in this is “Sleep well, Mr. Harker” – Count Dracula. The late film critic Barry Norman once produced a list in the Radio Times of his 50 Greatest British Films and this was listed.
