Dracula: Prince of Darkness Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted July 4, 2013 04:25 PM by Webmaster

Millenium EntertainmentMillennium Entertainment will release a Collector's Edition of director Terence Fisher's classic horror film Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966), starring Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, and Andrew Keir. The release will be available for purchase on September 3.

In this sequel to Dracula (1958), four English tourists are holidaying in the Carpathians when they meet the unconventional Father Sandor (Andrew Keir) at an inn. He warns them to avoid the local castle if they value their lives, but the next day the quartet find themselves stranded in the mountains after their driver abandons them. When a driverless carriage arrives they board it, intending to travel to the nearest village. However, the carriage instead takes them to the very castle which Sandor warned them against, where they are welcomed by Klove (Philip Latham), sinister manservant of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee)...

Guess this will have the same contents as the UK release, but will be interested to see if any differences. Too bad region A releases are so long after the region Bs.

It's about time. This will replace my Anchor Bay DVD which is non-anamorphic.
Now if only Warner Brothers would release some of the titles they have rights to.

Hey, I could use a region A (or region free) Hammer box set. Or how about chronological releases. (Horror of) Dracula is a damn masterpiece. Waitin' for the BD for us Yanks. :/

Yes, good news. Millennium Entertainment has a dvd set out with Prince of Darkness & 7 Golden Vampires & Frankenstein Created Woman, that gives us an idea of what they will release next. I would love to replace my non-anamorphic dvd of 7 Golden Vampires so hopefully they release that one next on Blu after Prince of Darkness.

I think Warner still owns US rights to Horror of Dracula.

Yes, Warner Bros owns the US distribution rights to Horror of Dracula (as well as Dracula Has Risen From The Grave, Taste The Blood of Dracula and Dracula AD 1972). It appears Millennium Media bought the US distribution rights to the same batch of mid 60's Hammer Films that Anchor Bay once owned, many of which have already come out on Blu-ray in the UK the past couple years. Regarding Frankenstein Created Women, I hope a vastly superior transfer source is used than what showed up on the recent dvd release. While the new release was anamorphic, the overall color and quality of the old non-anamorphic Anchor Bay dvd/laserdisc release was much better.

I got tired of waiting for DRACULA (1958) to be released region A. I broke down and bought an Oppo 103 region-free Blu-ray player. Then it didn't matter to me when US studios finally decided to release.

Tim Lucas pointed out that the otherwise excellent UK restoration missed the boat on including some better takes of Dracula's death. He shows comparative stills on video watchdog. I think the missed footage is buried somewhere in one of the documentaries on the UK BD set. I own the set, but haven't bothered to re-watch it to look for it.
Highly doubt this will be in the US BD, as it would mean someone bothering to do a new reconstruction of that scene.
It would be nice though.
