Lightning struck twice as the Curse of Frankenstein team (including house composer James Bernard) reconvened to bring Dracula into the Hammer fold, with a movie that further defined and refined the studio’s ethos. In Jimmy Sangster’s streamlined adaptation of the Bram Stoker novel, Christopher Lee incarnates the Count’s evil and sensual essence as he takes on Harker (John Van Eyssen), Holmwood (Michael Gough), and Van Helsing (Peter Cushing, of course).
