Christopher Lee's Dracula rises again in definitive Blu-ray and DVD

Dracula is back from beyond the grave - and he's looking even more fangtastic than ever.

The 1958 classic Dracula, starring Christopher Lee as the count and Peter Cushing as Van Helsing, has been fully restored in high definition and is coming to Blu-ray and DVD for the first time.

It will be released in the UK on March 18, 2013.

Hammer, Icon Film Distribution and Lionsgate have called it "a major event in British film history." Details of the release, including the extras, are included below.

The set will contain two versions of the feature (seamlessly branched on the Blu-ray): the 2007 BFI restoration plus the 2012 Hammer restoration, which adds additional footage lost for decades.

The additional footage comprises two of the scenes that were originally censored by the BBFC in 1958 that have now been restored to the film from reels found in Japan: Dracula's seduction of Mina, and Dracula's sunlight disintegration.
