DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE (1968 U.K.) D: FREDDIE FRANCIS W: "JOHN ELDER" (ANTHONY HINDS) P: AIDA YOUNG
Christopher Lee returns from his icy grave in this third entry in Hammer`s cycle, only to find his castle has been exorcised by a priest. The hero`s lack of faith results in Lee yanking a stake out of his heart in a memorable scene that`s also unique (the script concentrates on the religious aspects of the myth). Francis (who took over after Terence Fisher broke his leg) has made a good entry that`s not quite up to the level of the previous two. But it`s still a nice continuation that leads right into TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA. With Michael Ripper.
