From the Press Release
Millennium Entertainment is pleased to reveal the final artwork and announce details for its upcoming high-definition release of the classic 1966 Hammer film Dracula: Prince of Darkness on September 17th. Directed by Terence Fisher and starring the iconic Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, and Andrew Keir, Millennium’s Collector’s Edition of Dracula: Prince of Darkness marks the first time that horror fans in the US will be able to enjoy the film on Blu-ray. Millennium is also planning to release several other Hammer Films on Blu-ray later this year including Quartermass and the Pit, The Plague of the Zombies, and The Devil Rides Out.
Special features for the Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray of Dracula: Prince of Darkness include an exclusive stills gallery (never before released); audio commentary featuring Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Suzan Farmer, and Francis Matthews; Super 8MM behind-the-scenes footage; a restored original trailer; “Back to Black,” a brand new documentary on Dracula: Prince of Darkness; and much more.
In this direct sequel to Hammer’s Dracula (1958), Christopher Lee returns for more blood as he encounters a group of stranded English tourists who are holidaying in the Carpathian Mountains. Despite receiving several warnings by the unconventional Father Sandor (Andrew Keir) along their travels to stay as far away from the Count’s castle as they can, the group end up stranded there, with their host set to be resurrected upon their arrival. Will the travelers survive their fateful meeting with Dracula: Prince of Darkness?
