DRACULA AND HIS VAMPIRE BRIDE

Hammer Films' Dracula Finale. 
 
DRACULA AND HIS VAMPIRE BRIDE is the last time Christopher Lee played the role of Dracula in the Hammer horror series. The movie sets Dracula in the modern world (set a few years after DRACULA A.D.1972) with the great Peter Cushing as his antagonist.   The Prince of Darkness has been revived and is functioning as a reclusive billionaire set on introducing a deadly plague into the world.  Dracula is obsessed with taking revenge on the Van Helsing decendents and intends to use them as pawns in his diabolical plan.  The film is action-packed, with a violent and bloody ending -- and some gratuitous nudity too -- yet maintains the the mystery and suspense of previous Hammer incarnations. 
 
All in all, a brilliant conclusion to the Hammer legacy.
