Nigel Kneale and Hammer Films - perfect, just perfect. Add in Andrew Keir and Barbara Shelley and you have, in my opinion, Hammer's greatest film to date.

Surely with the new print available from the BFI this film is ripe for a lovely Blu-Ray edition?

Even without Lee as Dracula, this sequel is excellent. Cushing is great as always and the Baron makes a worthy successor to Dracula. Fisher deliver great direction as always.

tho criticised at the time for attempting to insert 'dracula' into swinging 70s london this movie has aquired a cult status among hammer fans over the years - and indeed is a much better film than it was given credit for upon its release in 1972 . A couple of bits of interesting trivia bout AD72 is that it nearly featured a cameo by rod stewart and the faces and it was at one time going to be called 'dracula in chelsea'. For me the best performance of the movie comes from christopher neame as 'johnny alucard'...dracula's sinister and slightly demented disciple.

One of the best UK science-fiction movies of the last forty years. It's a personal favourite! If Quatermass is brought back for a new audience, then please keep it as a period piece! Part of Bernard Quatermass's charm is his dogged determination and intelligence when pitted against authority and adversity. An older actor with immense gravitas would be needed to fill the great man's legendary shoes. A period setting would allow Quatermass to use his wits rather than some convenient gadget. Could be wonderful! How about Ian McKellen or Kenneth Cranham? Needs to be scary too!

If Brian Clemens could kick-start this again it would be absolutely wonderful! Maybe a cross-over with Father Shandor from Dracula Prince Of Darkness could be the start of a spin-off?

One of Hammer's best. Check out the the 'Icons of Suspense Collection: Hammer Films' available on Region 1. It's a bargain.

This is one of my favourite Hammer films from the 70s. It's so underrated and so much better than Dracula AD 1972. It almost feels like an episode of The Avengers, but with more horror and intrigue. Peter Cushing and Freddie Jones are wonderful as usual. The tone of this also reminds me of Channel 4's Ultraviolet series created by Joe Ahearne in the 90s. If Hammer ever wanted a new franchise to launch them into the new century, then an update or remake of Ultraviolet would be perfect. It's a mixture of Satanic Rites mixed with The X-Files.
