Monsters Mash #32 Hammer Horror of Dracula

We went through the silent era of the 20s and the golden era of 30s and 40s but the 50s were more about in America were all about the atomic age and we just went through a few of them that when hammer came to play they were a British Company that remade all the great gothic horrors they were in color blood and cleavages what put them on the map and made a star out of Christopher Lee was there Dracula film it the only solid Dracula series there was Horror of Dracula, Brides of Dracula, Dracula Prince of Darkness, Dracula has risen from the Grave, Taste the Blood of Dracula, Scars of Dracula, Dracula A.D. 1972, and The Satanic Rites of Dracula but were gonna talk about Horrors of Dracula the theme song what gives me chills and if you listen closely you can here the theme song anyway the film begins with a coffin and blood dripping who's bleeding why it's bleeding who cares. The cast is great especially Christopher Lee he's known for being the second best Dracula, Bela Lugosi set the voice and rules in general but Lee was bad@$$ look at that face, Michael Gough (who would later be famous play Alfred in the Tim Burton/Joel Shumacker Batman series) plays Arthur Holmwood who at the beginning is a skeptic but becomes a believer and Peter Cushing is awesome at the fearless Vampire Hunter Van Helsing he doesn't care he just wants his damn vampire just like the Universal One that stray far from the book this version strays even further one thing Jonathan Harker was going to buy the property to Dracula but in the movie was to be a librarian hired from Dracula in the book Harker was married to Mina but in the movie Harker was married to Lucy another thing Harker died in the movie pretty early he was alive till the end of the book and the character Renfield is not present you can't have a Dracula movie without Renfield the movie has one of the best fight scenes ever in a horror film it between good and evil the scene where Dracula burns to death was deleted and lost because it was to explicit for 1958 but a guy in japan found the missing footage and could be released on a new dvd.
