Lots of scary vampires, blood sucking creepies - who get smacked finally by Van Helsing and his comrades who use every - how to get a vampire trick in the book, including the thorns of a hawthorn tree, why - because a hawthorn tree was used to crown Jesus with thorns.

Satanic Rites of Dracula, The
Directed by - Alan Gibson

(1974) - Color - 88 min
This is the last of the Hammer Films Vampire classics which made a big splash for their over the top blood and guts, gross situations and a weird kind of perverted scenes that are hard to describe. And what's not to like about Christopher Lee as Dracula playing opposite another Horror Movie icon, Peter Cushing. They both have the horror genre down cold and play it well here as you might expect. Michael Coles provides a great performance as Inspector Murray and Joanna Lumley also shines as Van Helsing's daughter, Jessica Van Helsing.

Part one
Intro, Color, credits, etc - a policeman is undercover investigating the strange stories about a research think tank. In fact, there's no big ideas being generated, instead these knuckleheads are worshipping the evil one, yes, the most vile one of all - the devil. Worse - there are all kinds of super important politicians, generals and businessmen at the ceremony. There's also a fifth suspect - but you can't see him in the photograph, because it is Dracula. Part one contains some disturbing scenes and some brief nudity.

Part two
The police try and follow some leads but they really don't know what they are up against until they meet the wise professor Van Helsing. His family has hunted and destroyed vampires for many many generations of Van Helsings.

Part three
Van Helsing goes to meet an old friend, Professor Keeley who was seen at the old house where the satanic rituals were going on. Once there, he learns that Keeley has created a super mondo strain of the bubonic plague. A strain much more virulent than all previous plague germs. Dracula plans to use germ warfare - to wipe out all life on the life. And worse - everyone will die a slow and painful, horrible death.

Murray goes into check out the place, not really knowing what he will find. Jessica Van Helsing tags along, and then sneaks in a side door. Oops - wrong door. The cellar is filled with vampire girls, all eager to get a little bite of Jessica's neck. She screams - and Marry and friend come running to the rescue. But wait - one of the vampires is Murray's old girl. A tender moment, and then the fangs come out, followed by a wooden stake, delivered with extreme prejudice.
