This is a film worthy of the word 'best'. It is by far the best Hammer Dracula, AND may I go as far as saying it's the best Dracula film to date and with Christopher Lee in the best portrayal of Dracula, in my opinion.
You have the stars Christopher Lee as Dracula in his signature role, Peter Cushing as Van Helsing in one of his with the simple yet effective direction of Terence Fisher with some of the most memorable scenes in horror film history; the first appearance of Dracula at the top of the stairs, Dracula's jump over the table as the vampiress bites Jonathan Harker and Van Helsing running across the table to rip the curtains down to reveal the sunlight which kills Dracula.
A film which deserves the description 'classic'.
