Dracula A.D. 1972 is a 1972 British horror film produced by Hammer Film Productions, and is the seventh film in the Hammer Horror Dracula film series. The film stars Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Stephanie Beacham, and Christopher Neame, written by Don Houghton, and directed by Alan Gibson.

Why It Sucks

  1. Terrible story.
  2. Cheesy acting.
  3. The horror comes off more as humorous.
  4. For a film about Dracula, he hardly appears in the film at all save for two scenes.
  5. Characters that serve no purpose nor really care about other than to progress the plot.
  6. Johnny Alucard's (Christopher Neame) death scene is incredibly ridiculous over how played up it is.
  7. Alucard is Dracula backwards. The fact that Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) has a scene of him figuring this out by writing up his name and rearranging the letters is just pointless.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Good cinematography.
  2. Dracula's deaths in both the pre-title sequence and the film's climax are pretty awesome.
  3. The opening track (while out of place) is quite catchy.
  4. Christopher Lee is actually great as Dracula.
