    Dracula Has Risen from the Grave

    ★★★

    May not be the most exciting entry in the Hammer canon, but it really does radiate 60s horniness, not to mention Christopher Lee having the time of his life. I've never seen such visceral makeup effects for vampire bites before. Really had my skin crawling.

    Might be my favorite of the Connery Era. A visually inventive power struggle, fantastic gadgets, a surprisingly dynamic Bond girl, and some really excellent action directing. Strikes that balance of thrills and whimsical camp that a lot of Bonds just miss the mark on. That said, the barrage of orientalism and subsequent fetishization is pretty inescapable. Remains a relic, but a wildly entertaining one on the whole.

    It's a very good play! As a movie, it feels stuck onstage. The direction tries for cinematic interpretation, but comes off awkward. The added locations and moments feel, well, added. Unnecessary, really. The performances are...interesting! Though fun to watch, they play for the back row even with a camera inches from their face. It keeps everything fairly distant, and goofier than intended. In conclusion, Ryan Murphy retire bitch
