1st Sequel to Horror of Dracula with a Student

1960 was a great year for horror. Rumors that Dracula would return to the big screen were met with excitement. Well, Dracula did return.........sort of. The sequel to Horror of Dracula (1958) would not really come until 1965. In the meantime, one of Dracula's disciples would make his appearance in the guise of Baron Meinster. Played to great effect by David Peel. The Baron was so vile, he even made a Vampire of his own Mother! Fortunately for the movie viewers, Professor Van Helsing (The always wonderful Peter Cushing) would end the Baron's reign of terror. Here is the stunning, restored French one sheet to this Horror Masterpiece.
