He has come to destroy Dracula, but the plan falls through and he becomes a victim of the Count. Shortly after, Van Helsing arrives to investigate and discovers that he has been turned into a vampire, and Dracula has moved out from his castle to find more prey.

* RevealingHug: The woman in Dracula's castle, who begs Harker to help her escape. He agrees, she tearfully thanks him, and they embrace...and then she gets a very carnivorous look. And then her fangs come out.

* YouMustBeCold: Played innocently when Van Helsing gives his coat to a scared little girl, and then tells her "You look like a teddy bear."

''Horror of Dracula'' is a 1958 Film/HammerHorror film directed by Terence Fisher. Its official British title is simply ''Dracula'', but to avoid [[Film/{{Dracula 1931}} confusion]], we'll be using the title that it was released under in the U.S. It stars Sir Creator/ChristopherLee as the eponymous Count and Creator/PeterCushing as Van Helsing, roles for which they'd both remembered for a long time. Lee would later come to resent his role because of increasingly inferior [[{{Sequelitis}} sequels]] and typecasting.

* AdaptedOut: Due to the fact that film was made on cheap. They took out a good chunk of character from the book. Most notably Quincy and Renfield. Likewise Dracula's three female vampires are reduced to only one in this film.

* CanonForeigner: There was no Tania or Gerda in the original novel, they were made up for the movie.



* InfantImmortality: Little Tania is rescued just before she becomes vampirized Lucy's victim.

* InfantImmortality: Little Tania is rescued just before she becomes vampirized Lucy's victim. Oddly this ends up happening ''twice'', with the first time the characters even unaware of Lucy having risen as a vampire. The only reason she doesn't bite Tania that time is because she got scared off by a passing cop, causing Tania to name drop her to Arthur who proceeds to check out the crypt. Luckily being right where he needed to be when Lucy managed to bring Tania to the graveyard to feed on her on the second go around.



** After Arthur reads Harker's journal, he decides to at least check out Lucy's crypt at night. Sure enough, when he checks her coffin, her body isn't there.

** After Lucy dies and Arthur reads Harker's journal at the behest of Van Helsing, he decides to at least check out Lucy's crypt at night. Sure enough, when he inspects her coffin, her body isn't there.
** Shortly after the above, it cuts to a forest where we see Tania wandering about before calling out to...Lucy. Indeed the camera cuts to her, where a much active but obviously vampirized Lucy smiles at her, revealing her fangs.
