"There are no bogeyman anymore," yells Father Sandor in a vampire-fearing Romanian tavern.

Clearly, he's wrong as there's a large "bogeyman" in the shape of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee) in Hammer's gleefully camp 1966 horror. Confusing accents, frenzied string sounds and shrieks thrive in this tale of four well-heeled English tourists who, when holidaying in the Carpathians, accept the hospitality of a sinister manservant, Klove. A scream.
