Director Alan Gibson brought screenwriter Don Houghton’s modern take on an old gothic legend to life in Hammer’s sixth instalment of the franchise staring Christopher Lee as the dreaded Count. Polarising fans for decades, Dracula AD 1972 has now become something of a cult classic, and is of course a piece of social history in itself.
One thing fans lauded the film for in concert was its action packed prologue, which sees Dracula and his arch nemesis Van Helsing battle to the death during a wild carriage chase in London’s Hyde Park, silently observed by a strange young man on horseback, and both Hammer and Dracula devotees welcomed the long overdue return of Peter Cushing to the series. Classic Monsters are delighted to present this luxury full colour Ultimate Guide tribute to the movie, which explores not only the bold decision to update the action, but also what went on behind the scenes together with fascinating biographies on the cast and crew that brought it all to life.
