A Dissenting View
For me, this sequel to such Hammer greats as Horror of Dracula, Brides of Dracula, and Dracula Prince of Darkness is a weak link in the Hammer Dracula series. The opening is well-done in typical Hammer shock style, but from then on it is a pretty muddled story of the Count reeking revenge on a priest for exorcising his castle. The biggest problem I think with the film is the script. The film has all the elements for a successful Hammer film..great cinematography, gothic castle and settings, good acting with Christopher Lee, Rupert Davies, and Michael Ripper, beautiful Hammer Beauties(Veronica Carlson..Va Va VaBoom), lush costuming and so on. The story is the weak link as it is a bit hard to make complete sense of and has little depth and motivation for its characters, as well I think as some rather tame and uninspired direction from Freddie Francis(though on a whole I am a great admirer of his work). Maybe it is me....as all the other reviewers seem to adore it. When I watched it I was just very disappointed. It is not a terrible film, but just a letdown.

Trivia

Sir Christopher Lee loved to recount the following tale: Hammer was given a Queen's Award to Industry while shooting the final scenes of Dracula impaled on the rocks, with a group of British government dignitaries watching as Lee thrashed around screaming and pouring with gore. After the scene wrapped, a minister turned to his wife and said, "That man is a member of my club."

Goofs

This movie supposedly takes place one year after "Dracula - Prince Of Darkness". In "Horror Of Dracula", the story takes place, according to Jonathan Harker's diary, somewhere around 1887. In "Dracula - Prince Of Darkness", Father Sandor claims that it is about 10 years since Dracula's destruction, i.e. about 1897. Thus, "Dracula Has Risen From The Grave" should take place in 1898 if a year has passed. However, the inscription-plate on the coffin which the priest steals for Dracula gives the dates of Gisela Heinz's life as 1885-1905 - several years *after* the apparent setting. Consistency can only be maintained if we assume that in "Prince of Darkness", Father Sandor was speaking loosely, and meant *over* ten years had passed.


Alternate Versions

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.
