Dracula
Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, Britain's premier masters of the macabre, bring Dracula to vivid, full-colour death in this retelling of Bram Stoker's spellbinding vampire tale. Dracula (Lee), a centuries-old nobleman damned to an eternal half-life, travels from his native Transylvania to London. In the lurid nightlife of his adopted city, he finds new victims. He also finds Dr. Van Helsing (Cushing), a scientist who becomes the count's impeccable foe in a deadly game of bat-and-mouse.

The dread is here - and so are the power and pathos that made this a genre landmark that helped England's Hammer Productions usher in a new era of screen chills from classic evildoers. So lock the door, turn on the lights, get a tight grip on the armchair and tremble through that era again. Unleash the horror.
