1960 BBFC Cert. “X”

The Brides of Dracula

Opening narration:- “Transylvania, land of dark forests, dread mountains and black, unfathomed lakes, still the home of magic and devilry as the nineteenth century draws to its close. Count Dracula, monarch of all vampires, is dead. But his disciples live on, to spread the cult and corrupt the world.” A young woman on her way to take up a teaching post is offered the hospitality of the sombre Baroness Meinster in her remote castle. But the Baroness has a son, a young man she keeps shackled in his rooms – a young man with a terrifying secret!
