An "aka: Horror of Dracula" would make this easier to find. Just typing up "Dracula" brings up way, way too long a list.
Stunning art direction, but as far as the story goes, it didn't really grab me. It could be the fact that I just saw too many Dracula adaptations or horror films overall, though Cushing added a lot too the film, he really delivered.
Christopher Lee on the other hand, was not scary, so the film seemed to drag a bit at times. There was just so little to no tension.
For all the attention that's paid to Christopher Lee's role as Dracula, the real star of this film is the one who was first billed, Peter Cushing. The man single handedly carries this plot, and makes things serious.
