Horror Scenes That I Love: Van Helsing and Dracula Meet in Dracula A.D. 1972


Even in the year 1972, Count Dracula (Christopher Lee) could not escape Prof. Van Helsing (Peter Cushing).  Of course, the Van Helsing here was a descendant of the Van Helsing who gave Dracula such a hard time in the 19th century but still, Dracula was not thrilled to see him.

This scene is from Hammer’s Dracula A.D. 1972.  It’s not generally considered to be one of the better Dracula films but I enjoy any chance to see Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee (who were the closest of friends off-screen) acting opposite each other.

  1. I recently got a 4-pack of Dracula films from that era…a last gasp attempt to keep the character alive as tastes were changing in horror to be sure…intersting time capsules to be sure
