Summary: 1972 : Past 100 years of apparent death, Count Dracula (Christopher Lee) is reincarnated during a grisly Black Mess, held by a group of young people.
Soon, the King of Vampires starts to pick his victims from London's girls. The police turns to Professor Van Helsing (Peter Cushing), but doesn't believe his theories of vampirism.
When the number of murder heaps up among his niece's (Stephanie Beacham) friends, Van Helsing fears the worst. Armed with holy water, dagger and crucifix, he prepares himself to stop this bloodsucker.




Our Ranking





short review:

Despite its silly German release title (Dracula Jagt Mini-Mädchen/Dracula Chases The Mini Girls), this is not a comedy. You will find the usual fascinating imagery, as mostly when it comes from British Hammer Studios, and one of the most famous/notorious partnerships in film-history: Christopher Lee as the ruthless, bloodsucking Count, while Peter Cushing stars as his merciless counterpart. Don't miss this one, even when it takes place in "swinging 70's" London!
