Christopher Lee thought this was his weakest Dracula sequel, but Hammer horror fans like it because the Count has more screen time here than in any other episode.

There’s also a palpable dark fairy-tale atmosphere achieved by director Roy Ward Baker as Dracula tries sinking his fangs into naive Transylvanian travellers Dennis Waterman and Jenny Hanley.
