Available for the first time in the United States of America, the British are invading with Hammer's release of DRACULA: PRINCE OF DARKNESS, finally on Blu-Ray!  Thanks to the people from Millennium Entertainment, you can get your hands on this incredible collector's piece starting TODAY.  The film stars Christopher Lee in his iconic portrayal of everyone's favorite vampire.  The story is the sequel to Hammer's powerhouse film DRACULA (not to be confused with the Universal horror film of the same name) but this time Christopher Lee returns to suck the innocent blood of a group of stranded English tourists in the Carpathian Mountains. The film is absolutely stunning on Blu-Ray and seeing the special effects in HD further prove that there's nothing better than practical blood sucking.  The disc also includes some mind-melting special effects.  The audio commentary was rather entertaining, but I was blown away by the breathtaking stills gallery. 

Special Features Include:
  • Audio commentary with Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Suzan Farmer and Francis Matthews
  • Exclusive still gallery (NEVER BEFORE RELEASED!)
  • Restored original trailer
  • Dracula: Prince of Darkness restoration comparison
  • Super 8MM behind-the-scenes footage
  • Brand new documentary- “Back to Black”
  • World of Hammer Episode: “Hammer Stars: Christopher Lee”
  • Printed Memorabilia perfect for every classic Hammer fan out there
Luckily, Millennium plans on releasing even MORE Classic Hammer titles in the future including Quartermass and the Pit, The Plague of the Zombies, and The Devil Rides Out.  

You can snag your copy of Dracula: Prince of Darkness anywhere Blu-Ray discs are sold, or on the good ol' Amazon.
