'''''Horror of Dracula''''' is a horror film by [[Film/HammerHorror Hammer Film Productions]], released in 1958. Its real name is simply just ''Dracula'', but to avoid [[Film/{{Dracula 1931}} confusion]], we'll be using the title that it was released under in the US. 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.

** Averted when Van Helsing stakes Lucy. We're treated to a delightfully gory special effects shot instead.

* TooDumbToLive: Harker foolishly waits until just before dusk to try and dispatch Dracula, and then even more foolishly stakes the female vampire first.

** This version dispenses with Dracula's shape-shifting abilities. It's even lampshaded when Van Helsing dismisses the vampire's ability to turn into a wolf or bat as "a common fallacy".
