The Bare Bones: In this second installment in Hammer Horror's Dracula series, a woman finds herself entangled in a dangerous engagement after Freeing a young man, and her only hope jut might be Dr. Van Helsing.
My theory with effects is always aim small, miss small, but even I can't deny that with this one, they aimed pretty small, and still missed.
And I know it's an era thing, but even when it was common for the female leads to only want to marry, it still didn't make a compelling story line. That being said, this movie made it a hell of alot closer than most of its era.
