DOUBLE BILL: Dracula Has Risen From The Grave (1968) / Taste The Blood of Dracula (1970)

DRACULA RISESIn celebration of Hammer’s Dracula being released on BluRay in the UK, we at Hammer Horror Podcast, thought we’d offer the treat of a Double Bill Podcast, in true Hammer spirit.

2 Years has passed since the last Dracula instalment and for the first time, has a new director at the helm, Freddie Francis. Dracula Has Risen From The Grave, ventures into new territory, visually and therefore offers a whole new slant on the Hammer franchise.

Christopher Lee once more dons the eponymous titular role and along with the cast and crew delivers arguably one of the finest movies in the canon.

TASTE BLOODThe second movie in our double bill, comes in the form of Taste The Blood of Dracula, which follows swiftly after its predecessor and welcomes the entrance of Hammer regular, Ralph Bates, as the dashing and devilish, Lord Courtley.

With some coercion, Christopher Lee returns as Dracula himself and makes his presence felt throughout the movie, but with its fifth instalment into the franchise, is the blood starting to run dry?
