Classic horror starring Peter Cushing. A young teacher on her way to a position in Transylvania helps a young man escape the shackles his mother has put on him. In doing so she innocently unleashes the horrors of the undead once again on the populace, including those at her school for ladies. Luckily for some, Dr Van Helsing (Cushing) is already on his way.
The Making of The Brides of Dracula Narrated by Edward de Souza and featuring interviews with Yvonne Monlaur, Jimmy Sangster, Hugh Harlow, Pauline Harlow, Don Mingaye, Margaret Robinson and Tony Hinds

Top class Hammer movie. Peter Cushing's second outing as Van Helsing and David Peel's only vampire role. One of the most beautifully photographed movies ever - Jack Asher at his best and director Terence Fisher in top form. If the bat is a little clunky by modern effects standards, no worry for there is plenty to enjoy here. Great performances from Cushing and Peel, as mentioned, but also watch out for the acting duel between vetrans Freda Jackson and Martita Hunt; each gives a ripe performance and both are highly memorable. Other performances to look out for are from scene- stealing Miles Malleson as the hypochondriac Dr Tobler and Andree Melly who gave one of the 60's classic vampire images to the screen. Michael Ripper is also there for fans, this time as the scared coach driver. Cushing's authoratative Van Helsing carries the movie and David Peel's Baron Meinster is an excellent vampire foe - clipped Oxford English, red eyes and hissing vampire attacks. The burning windmill finale was lifted to conclude Tim Burton's SLEEPY HOLLOW which was a tribute to Hammer Films. Pure escapism - enjoy! --maxgol

they seem to have forgotten the art of the horror film...long live Hammer, Amicus, Kobalt, Tigon and all the other classic's!
Brides doesn't need Christopher Lee though. It has its very own vampire played wonderfully by David Peel who quit the business after this film was made aged only 40 to become an antiques dealer and estate agent. I feel he gives the vampire a real presence.
Peter Cushing returns as Van Helsing- another wonderful performance, has Cushing ever given a below par performance?
Brides runs along well- with many interesting characters that keep getting introduced to us even with only twenty minutes to go. Check out a wonderful cameo by Miles Malleson, who between scenes would make Cushing laugh hard.
My one problem with the film though was Yvonne Monlaur's performace as the French woman stranded. She is actually French, but I felt she was putting on the accent, which means for me that she isn't the greatest actress out there. Thankfully her role is limited more as the film goes on.
So, not as good as the original Dracula, but definetly a worthy sequel.
I don't swallow this Frenchified 'auteur' theory about Terence Fisher, though. He was a superb craftsman (when at his best), as a viewing or two of his pre-Hammer movies will tell you. I imagine him to have been fairly modest: do the job with the minimum of fuss then bugger off home.
