    Just remembering seeing a Hammer (I think) Dracula flick when I was young. Pretty sure it had Peter Cushing (probably as Van Helsing) and ended in a castle with him diving and ripping down some huge drapes to fry Dracula. Anyone know which one it is?

    The first and best, HORROR OF DRACULA (known simply as DRACULA in Great Britain).

    Your not confused. I was. Horror of Dracula is the first and still available. When I said it was OOP I was thinking of the sequel "Dracula, Prince of Darkness". My mistake and I edited my post above. [​IMG]

    I'll have to give it a spin. I don't know why it came to mind all of a sudden. This is one of those movies that used to be shown on a local independent station late Friday night back in the 70s. I remember some of them, but generally when I have rented one now, I realize it was an incredibly bad movie. Maybe this one is an exception.

    LOL, I wouldn't say exceptional but it's good. You gotta love the old Hammer Films though for their cinematography, style, atmosphere, sets and in particular the music. [​IMG] I grew up watching them on tv late nights as a kid back in the mid to late 60's, early 70's and I love the first 5 Dracula films from Hammer Productions. After that they got kinda weak/not so good to me.
