When Castle Dracula is exorcised by the Monsignor, it accidentally brings the Count back from the dead. Dracula follows the Monsignor back to his hometown, preying on the holy man's beautiful niece and her friends.
This was the first movie to receive a rating from the MPAA in 1968.
Who has done this thing! Tell me who has done this thing!
The cross that the Monsignor takes from the church is clearly made of wood with gold foil and/or paint (apparent from the ease with which he handles it, and also when it is seen in close-up as he converses with the frightened Priest on the mountainside). However, when it falls from the cliff in the final sequence, the (over-dubbed) sound it makes as it hits the rocks suggests it to be made of solid metal.
The UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to remove some closeup shots of Dracula pulling a stake from his heart. Later video and DVD releases were uncut.
