Hammer's "Horror of Dracula" was the first vampire film to incorporate fangs, blood, sex and red eyes into its story about the evil, blood-sucking Count.

Before 1958, vampire films were always in black and white and not very gory, considering that a vampire drinks blood. Then the Hammer Studios from England came along and the audience never knew what hit them. There was blood. There were frightening scares. And, most of all, there was colour!

"Horror of Dracula" was the first vampire movie to be filmed in colour. And, with that, we were introduced to actor Christopher Lee, who was arguably one of the best and most memorable Dracula's of them all. Standing over six feet tall, this man had a true presence as Dracula.

"The Horror of Dracula", 1958, pairs the established star Peter Cushing with the up and coming star Christopher Lee. These two would dominate British and American horror films from this point on. They have no rivals. The color and pageantry of this film is unexceeded
