4.0 out of 5 stars Hammer still got the knack, 28 Feb 2008
This review is from: Taste The Blood Of Dracula [DVD] [1970] (DVD)
The 5th installment of Hammers Dracula films is excellent in my opinion. There was a review in a newsapaper stating that this was a recovery from the last film (risen from the grave). I think people said that because there was no one else besides Lee of any real substance. Ralph Bates fills that role excellently not as an adversary but as a catalyst in reviving Dracula with the help of Roy Kinnear and Peter Sallis as well as other dodgy blokes. The ending is a bit of a letdown as it isn't completly clear how Lee dies(which is why I can only give a 4)
The plot 3 dodgy repressed victorian dignitaries visit various brothels and like to think themselves adventurers in the darker part of human nature. On one of their quests they meet Ralph Bates who promises to get them higher than they have ever been. They must purchase some items of a dodgy salesman (roy kinnear). The items are a pendant,ring and a testube full of dried blood which all belong to a certain Count Dracula. When they are asked to drink the blood they all "bottle it" and poor Ralphie necks the lot and starts having some sort of satanic fit the gentlemen genorously put him out of his misery. However the count has been summonded and has revenge on his mind.
