Dracula Prince Of Darkness is actually one of the releases I'm most looking forward to even though it's a far lesser effort than Horror of Dracula and even several of the following Lee/Dracula sequels. Reason being, it's never had a truly decent looking transfer to home video. I remember the disappointment when Anchor Bay released it on laserdisc - the colors were so muted and the dvd was a marginal improvement.
I eagerly went to see Dracula Prince Of Darkness towards the end of my high school days with hopes in my heart, despite disappointments like Curse of the Mummy's Tomb a few years earlier. Well, my hopes were not fulfilled. Furthermore, if my experience with the first-release print I saw is any indication, you will be waiting forever to see a good-looking transfer because the film itself is washed-out and way on the magenta end.
I hope they come up with some better titles than this one.
