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. SPECIAL FEATURES Introduction to Brides of Dracula 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 The Brides of Dracula Stills Gallery The Brides of Dracula Theatrical Trailer Review 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
