Good confronts the fangs of evil as the famous literary and cinematic vampire Dracula reemerges in the 1968 movie Dracula Has Risen from the Grave, starring Christopher Lee. Although vanquished through death, the sinister Count continues to infuse fear in the nearby villagers. Dracula’s reach remains so great they willfully neglect church services because the darkness of his palace casts a pall onto the site. A high ranking Roman Catholic priest comes to the village and becomes dismayed over the plight of the parishioners and the church. Planning an exorcism on the prince of darkness’ home, he hopes to dispel the townspeople’s fear. The action, while successful, proves tragic. The village priest becomes injured along the route with the unexpected consequences of Dracula returning to the realm of the living. Barred from his castle because of the exorcism, the Count exacts revenge. Two unlikely allies work to end his efforts.
