DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS
My DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS blu ray came from AMAZON yesterday and I must say...it was a pleasant surprise! The collector's cards are cool, the film is better than I remembered (with an amazing transfer) and it had a very good documentary and original trailer (cool lettering graphics only). A perfect cast and an engaging story. The "ritual" scene was shocking and gory (which they talk about in the documentary) BUT overall the film is a very good sequel to the the original (which has always been one of my favorites). I hope STUDIO CANAL soon issues many more HAMMER films including the original DRACULA with the extra footage they found from a JAPANESE print. Love it!
