ON SET FOR WHEN #DRACULA ROSE AND FELL AT #PINEWOODSTUDIOS : RARE FULL COLOUR PRINTS!



#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: Christopher Lee up in the roof top set of Dracula Has Risen From The Grave, at Pinewood studios. 'Grave' I have often thought was one of the few in the series that would have really been so much better with some Cushing Van Helsing in the plot! No?😊😌😊



THIS FILM WAS number THREE in the Lee Hammer Dracula series is often reported to be Hammer films most successful film? Over at the FACEBOOK PCAS FAN PAGE, I have asked if anyone can provide evidence as to why that would be thought so??? Feel free to give us your theories! 😉


ANOTHER ONE THAT IS rarely posted on facebook groups or Hammer films websites.. a full colour transparency from 'Dracula Has Risen from the Grave'. Lee in respose, the last we see of the Count before he is no more. Always thought it was a leap too far, from flesh to slime and ash in this death scene. Hammer and Les Bowie Special Effects team were always so good at the 'big pay off' visuals of Dracula coming back from the dead and dying sometimes the most gruesome, yet quite inventive death!
