Dracula is a 1958 British horror film, and the first of a series of Hammer Horror films inspired by the Bram Stoker novel Dracula. It was directed by Terence Fisher, and stars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. In the United States, the film was retitled Horror of Dracula to avoid confusion (and international copyright infringement) with the Tod Browning-directed Dracula (1931) starring Bela Lugosi.

Production began at Bray Studios on the 17 November 1957 with an investment of £81,000.




Not B&W but still by all means a definite classic, and fangtasticl addition to the Dracula legacy, this classic Hammer film featuring the great Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing is as amazing and stands up there with any other Dracula adaptation IMO. This film as with many from Hammer studios just conquerors with atmosphere and landscapes! great acting and an over all presence of genuine horror!

Great film. Probably my second favorite Dracula film after Nosferatu (1922).

I'd have to say this one w/ the Bela Lugosi Dracula 1931 as an ultimate tie for me.

Who says classics have to be black and white. This is a simply amazing film the one thing i like about this over the unversal Dracula is the fact that Hammer took the character and allowed Lee to make it his own love it

Yea, Lee's Dracula definitely rivals Lugosi's. I still say both are fucking great but, Lee made it into his own.
