his post as librarian Inside he is startled by a young woman who claims she is a prisoner and begs for his help Dracula then appears to greet Harker and guide him to his room where he locks him in Jonathan starts to write in his diary and his true intentions are revealed he is a vampire hunter and has come to kill Dracula Freed sometime later Harker again is confronted by the desperate woman She begs him for help but then bites his neck Just as she does Dracula – fangs bared and lips bloody – arrives and pulls her away When he awakens in daylight Harker finds the bite marks on his neck knowing that he is doomed to become undead unless he kills Dracula After writing his final entry he hides his journal in a shrine to the Virgin Mary outside the castle and descends into the crypt where he finds Dracula and the vampire woman resting in their coffins Armed with a stake he impales the woman who as he looks on immediately ages from young to old Whilst he does this the sun sets and when he turns to Draculas coffin with the intention of killing the vampire he finds it empty Looking up Harker is in time to see the Count shut the door and they are both plunged into darkness A few days have passed Dr Van Helsing then arrives in Klausenburg looking for Harker An innkeepers daughter gives him Harkers journal When he arrives at the castle a hearse carriage speeds by with a coffin in it nearly hitting him Searching the castle he find it deserted though comes across the portrait Harker had of Lucy and Mina only with the photos now gone Exploring further Helsing eventually reaches the crypt where he finds the remains of the vampire woman and to his horror Harker in Draculas coffin transformed into a vampire Helsing solemnly stakes Harker before he leaves to deliver the veiled news of Harkers death in person to a wary Arthur Holmwood and his wife Mina brother and sisterinlaw of Harkers fiancée Lucy Holmwood Lucy is ill so the news is kept from her and Lucys little niece Tania But when night falls Lucy removes the crucifix from round her neck opens the doors to her terrace and lays bare her neck – already it bears the mark of a vampire bite Soon Dracula arrives and bites her again Mina seeks out Van Helsings aid in treating Lucys declining health but Lucy begs Gerda the maid to remove his prescribed garlic bouquets and she dies Realizing that Lucy will arise as a vampire Van Helsing turns over Harkers diary journal to the griefstricken Arthur to reveal the truth about Jonathans death Three days after Lucy is interred Tania is spirited away into the night and is returned by a policeman claiming Lucy had beckoned her Later that same night Lucy now undead and evil lures away Tania once more to a graveyard with the intent to feed on her and turn her into a vampire But the child is saved when Arthur after discovering Lucys empty coffin spots them and calls out to Lucy Lucy turns her attention to him but Van Helsing manages to ward her off with a cross and forces her to flee back to her crypt Arthur now accepting the truth of Lucys vampirism asks Van Helsing why Dracula targeted her Van Helsing explains that Lucy is both Draculas revenge against Harker and a replacement for the bride killed by him Van Helsing suggests using Lucy as a means to find Dracula But Arthur refuses as it runs the risk of her biting someone else and he does not want to see Lucy corrupted any further so Van Helsing agrees to destroy her After taking Tania home they return to Lucys coffin to stake her Arthur is initially resistant to this method describing it as horrible but agrees after Van Helsing explains that the Lucy he knows is long dead and is nothing more than a shell a walking corpse under Draculas command and the only way to grant her eternal peace is to destroy her body Van Helsing stakes her in her coffin and when Arthur takes one final look at Lucys body he sees her body free of corruption and finally at peace Van Helsing and Arthur travel to the customs house in Ingolstadt to track down the destination of Draculas coffin which Van Helsing saw carried away when he arrived at Draculas castle Meanwhile Mina is called away from home by a message telling her to meet Arthur at an address in Karlstadt – the same address Arthur and Van Helsing are told the coffin was bound for – and Dracula is indeed waiting for her The next morning Arthur and Van Helsing find Mina in a strange state They leave for the address they were given an undertakers but find the coffin missing When they decide to set off again to inspect an old graveyard they suspect might be the coffins new resting place Arthur tries to give Mina a cross to wear but it burns her revealing that she is infected by vampirism and is slowly turning into a vampire herself During the night Van Helsing and Arthur guard Minas windows outside against a return of Dracula but Dracula nonetheless appears inside the house and bites her She is saved when Arthur agrees to give her an emergency blood transfusion administered by Van Helsing When Arthur asks Gerda to fetch some wine from the cellar she tells him that Mina had forbidden her to go to the cellar Upon hearing this Van Helsing realizes the coffins location the cellar of the Holmwoods own house He bolts downstairs to find it but Dracula is not in the coffin and instead escapes into the night with Mina intent on making her a new bride After planting a cross inside Draculas coffin he and Holmwood realize that Dracula now has only his castle to hide in A chase then begins as Dracula rushes to return to his castle near Klausenberg before sunrise He attempts to bury Mina alive outside the crypts but is caught by Van Helsing and Arthur Inside the castle Van Helsing and Dracula struggle Van Helsing tears open the curtain to let in the sunlight and forming a cross from two candlesticks he forces Dracula into it Dracula crumbles into dust as Van Helsing looks on Mina recovers the crossshaped scar fading from her hand indicating that she has been saved As she recovers Draculas ashes blow away leaving only his clothes and ring behind Christopher Lee as Count Dracula Peter Cushing as Abraham Van Helsing

as Policeman George Woodbridge as Landlord George Benson as Frontier Official Miles Malleson as Undertaker Geoffrey Bayldon as Porter Olga Dickie as Gerda Barbara Archer as Inga Valerie Gaunt as a Bride of Dracula Productionedit Special effectsedit The filming of Draculas destruction included a shot in which Dracula appears to peel away his decaying skin This was accomplished by putting a layer of red makeup on Lees face and then covering his entire face with a thin coating of morticians wax which was then made up to conform to his normal skin tone When he raked his fingers across the wax it revealed the raw marks underneath This startling sequence was cut out but was restored for the 2012 Bluray release using footage from a badly damaged Japanese print Zodiac wheel in final sceneedit At the end of the film Dracula is destroyed on an inlaid Zodiac wheel on the floor which has several quotes in Latin and Greek The inner circle in Greek has a quote from Homers Odyssey Book 18 136–7 τοῖος γὰρ νόος ἐστὶν ἐπιχθονίων ἀνθρώπων οἷον ἐπ᾽ ἦμαρ ἄγησι πατὴρ ἀνδρῶν τε θεῶν τε The mind of men who live on the earth is such as the day the father of gods and men Zeus brings upon them The outer wheel is written in Latin and is a quote from Hesiod via Bartolomeo Anglico De proprietatibus rerum Book 8 Chapter 2 Tellus vero primum siquidem genuit parem sibi coelum stellis ornatum ut ipsam totam obtegat utque esset beatis Diis sedes tuta semper And Earth first bare starry Heaven equal to herself to cover her on every side and to be an eversure abidingplace for the blessed gods Draculas ring is left on the glyph of the sign of Aquarius on the Zodiac wheel Receptionedit Dracula was a critical and commercial success upon its release and was well received by critics and fans of Stokers works The film currently scores 91 on review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes based on 32 reviews with an average rating of 7 810 The sites consensus states Trading gore for grandeur Horror of Dracula marks an impressive turn for inveterate Christopher Lee as the titular vampire and a typical Hammer mood that makes aristocracy quite sexy 4 The trade journal reviews from 1958 were very positive Film Bulletin noted As produced by Anthony Hinds in somber midVictorian backgrounds and directed by Terence Fisher with an immense flair for the bloodcurdling shot this Technicolor nightmare should prove a real treat The James Bernard score is monumentally sinister and the Jack Asher photography full of foreboding atmosphere Dracula S Daughter 5 Harrisons Reports was particularly enthusiastic Of all the Dracula horror pictures thus far produced this one made in Britain and photographed in Technicolor tops them all Its shock impact is in fact so great that it may well be considered as one of the best horror films ever made What makes this picture superior is the expert treatment that takes full advantage of the storys shock values 6 Vincent Canby in Motion Picture Daily said Hammer Films the same British production unit which last year restored Mary Shelleys Frankenstein to its rightful place in the screens chamber of horrors has now even more successfully brought back the granddaddy of all vampires Count Dracula Its chillingly realistic in detail and at times as gory as the law allows The physical production is first rate including the settings costumes Eastman Color photography and special effects 7 Releaseedit Originaledit The film was released in the U S in 1958 on a double bill with the Universal film The Thing That Couldnt Die Home mediaedit The film made its first

rerelease was given a 12A For many years historians have pointed to the fact that an even longer more explicit version of the film played in Japanese and European cinemas in 1958 Efforts to locate the legendary Japanese version of Dracula had been fruitless In September 2011 Hammer announced that part of the Japanese release had been found by writer and cartoonist Simon Rowson in the National Film Center at the National Museum of Modern Art Tokyo 9 The first five reels of the film held by the center were destroyed in a fire in 1984 but the last four reels were recovered The recovered reels
