Care for a Bite?

Horror of Dracula (1958)
Dir - Terrence Fisher

Classic. Not that it really needs to be said but this shows just how awesome the Hammer films were. Christopher Lee's first (of many) portrayals of Dracula and co-starring with Peter Cushing in the Van Helsing role. Amazing. This was the first time the world saw the Bram Stoker's character, or any other vampire for that matter, in such startling color. I can only imagine the reaction by moviegoers everywhere when they saw those first drops of bright red blood after the opening credits.  Wish I could have been there.
