Dracula (1958) (82 mins)
Hammer's 1958 version of Stoker's Gothic novel was the most exciting to date, boasting lavish costumes and sets, a vibrant score and red, red blood. Flawless pacing, dynamic stars in Christopher Lee (as the malevolent, charismatic Count) and Peter Cushing (as nemesis Van Helsing), plus a frisson of sex make this a chilling classic, a pleasure to be discovered by each new generation of horror fans. This is the 2012 restoration which features previously censored scenes.
