Dracula A.D. 1972 Review

Nothing dates your movie faster than putting the year in the title, and for some reason, Dracula movies attract this special folly. Dracula A.D. 1972 (helpfully noting that we're not dealing with some Babylonian Dracula in 1972 B.C.) finds Dracula (Christopher Lee) revived -- inexplicably, by mixing its metaphors and having a group of devil worshippers resurrecting him -- and hanging out with his cronies in swingin' London, where he feasts on boxum gals in low-cut tops when he's not being pursued by the progeny of Van Helsing (Peter Cushing). Rather awful, this is one of the sadder entries in the Dracula canon, offering nothing much that's new to the genre.
