WANT TO SEE THIS FILM?

Those brilliant unsung heros and creative people who make our favourite films worth watching, the make up artists, scene painters, camera assistants, special effects programmers and people in the 100s of other jobs that make up the film industry are having to give up working in film - victims of those who think downloading films "doesn't hurt anyone". Sorry to point that out!
Whatsmore, film companies large and small are going out of business because people think it's "allright" to download films for free. Again, sorry to point that out too!
That's why there's not so many good films being made anymore. And it's a real irony, because it's people who like to watch films who are causing all this trouble! They just don't know any better.

If a film's worth seeing, then it's worth paying for. It's obvious really!
Don't download it. BUY IT!

Please copy this message and email it to any of your friends who still thinks it's allright to download films for free. Quickly. Before they ruin it all for the rest of us!

DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS

Dracula Prince of Darkness

ROY WOOD
reviewed this film and gave it:


Dracula: Prince of Darkness is a 1966 British horror film directed by Terence Fisher for Hammer Studios. The film was photographed in Techniscope by Michael Reed, designed by Bernard Robinson and scored by James Bernard.
Dracula does not speak in the film. According to Christopher Lee: "I didn't speak in that picture. The reason was very simple. I read the script and saw the dialogue! I said to Hammer, if you think I'm going to say any of these lines, you're very much mistaken."
But screenwriter Jimmy Sangster, in his memoir Inside Hammer (Reynolds & Hearn, 2001), stated that "Vampires don't chat. So I didn't write him any dialogue. Chris Lee has claimed that he refused to speak the lines he was given ... So you can take your pick as to why Christopher Lee didn't have any dialogue in the picture. Or you can take my word for it. I didn't write any."
The film was made back-to-back with Rasputin, the Mad Monk, using many of the same sets and cast. Barbara Shelley later remembered accidentally swallowing one of her fangs in one scene, and having to drink salt water to bring it back up again because of the tight shooting schedule (as well as there being no spare set of fangs).
