By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 15 Dec. 2007
Format: DVD
For the US release of Hammer's fourth Dracula film (only the third to actually feature Christopher Lee, the Count sitting out Brides of Dracula), Warner Bros. used a one-sheet of a woman's neck with a sticking plaster on it, following the title Dracula Has Risen From the Grave with the single word 'Obviously.' The film itself, however, is anything but tongue-in-cheek, and played deadly straight with a conviction the series gradually lost over the years. It's probably the best-looking of all the Hammer Dracula sequels, and also the first where Christopher Lee actually speaks. As usual he's almost a background figure for much of the film, with the bulk of the film carried by Barry Andrews' atheist student romancing Veronica Carlson's niece of Rupert Davies' Monsignor, who inadvertently starts the blood flowing again when his attempt to exorcise Dracula's castle only results in the Count being revived from his icy grave by blood from a convenient cut. Finding himself cast out of his home and aided by Ewan Hooper's terrified priest (Renfield presumably being otherwise engaged), Dracula determines to take his revenge on Davies and his kin, stopping off en route for a light snack with Barbara Ewing's busty redheaded barmaid.

With a prologue that takes place before Dracula, Prince of Darkness and the main body of the film taking place a year later, it takes some liberties with the vampire mythology: the revived Dracula's first appearance is as a reflection, he has no problem removing crosses from willing girls' necks while a stake alone is no longer enough to kill him: you have to pray as well, which is a bit of a problem when your hero doesn't believe in God. Yet they're not as jarring as they might be, the latter resulting in one particularly memorably gory sequence.

DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE is another great entry in Hammer Studio's fantastic Dracula series with the superb Christopher Lee reprising his role as Count Dracula. Lee doesn't have much screen time in the middle section, but when he does make an appearance he takes the field. His presence is menacing as ever, definitely one of the greatest actors of all times.
Also starring the beautiful Veronica Carlson and Rupert Davies as the Monsignor.
Directed this time by Freddie Francis instead of Terence Fisher, DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE delivers the same great Gothic atmosphere as its predecessors, the costumes and sets are equally impressive and work well.
My only complaint about this third sequel to 1958's DRACULA (the second to star Christopher Lee) is that too much screen time in the first third is given to the romance between Barry Andrews (Paul) and Carlson (Maria). Davies' character could have been used a little more instead.
There are some of the best scenes of the series in DRACULA HAS RISEN, like the battle on the roof top filmed with a red filter - though rather short it looks just gorgeous! I also liked the beginning in the bell tower a lot and maybe the most intense and best finale of any in the series.
It was surprisingly rated G in the US, but it features some really bloody scenes, including a really well executed staking scene, which would definitely be an R today, while other effects appear rather dated (it was made in 1968).
While DRACULA HAS RISEN will not make anyone jump anymore today - it just isn't scary - I would choose this over ANY Dracula movie made nowadays anyway, especially with the likes of TWILIGHT out there.

RATING: 10 / 10

"Dracula Has Risen From The Grave", has to be one of the best Dracula movies of all time. The film has a rich gothic feeling to it, and Christopher Lee makes the most of his role. He doesn't have much to say, but his presence as the bloodthirsty count are among the finest on the silver screen. Tall, dark and menacing. You don't have to rely on expensive special effects when you have an actor like Chris Lee around. A rock solid production.

Not having seen this for a long time, to watch it again now in widescreen on a big TV was a real treat. Its certainly as good as Dracula Prince of Darkness, though not as good as the original, which for me is the best Hammer film as made.

The main reasons for its success are Freddie Francis direction, James Bernard for another classic score, and the films use of Christopher Lee. Unlike in the later sequels, in this film Lee has plenty to do and makes many appearances throughout the film. Interesting watching it for the first time on DVD it does look to me as though Christopher Lee was wearing a wig. Not that surprising since he was 46 years old when this was made.

The film has a genuinely gothic feel to it, and although not in the least bit scary by todays standards, there are nevertheless one or two creepy moments. Of the rest of the cast Rupert Davies as the Monsignor is perhaps the best, in fact I would of like to have seen more of his character in the film.

The only extra on the DVD is the original trailer. There are no commentaries or outtakes which is a pity.

Its a shame that Peter Cushing didn't appear in the first two sequels. His presence would have improved the film. Nevertheless this is probably equal 2nd best with Dracula Prince of Darkness and gets 3.5 stars from me.
