Can anyone tell me the best place to get the Platinum versoin of this cheap? I live in the UK so postage is also an issue.

Also, if anyone has the disc, what do you think of it (Compared to the Anchor Bay one!)?

I don't know what the AB version looks like, but the Platinum disc is an excellent transfer. The picture looks great. I don't know about stores in the UK, but at Walmart over here I picked it up for $4.50. Try www.walmart.com or even www.bestbuy.com I don't like the film much. It's a bit boring, but for that price it was worth the risk of buying it unseen.

Thanks Shannafey. Ive looked at both sites and unfortunately none of them do international shipping. Its pretty cheap on Amazon.com but the shipping overrides any saving made. Ill keep looking though.

just watched this tonight. the disc said this was the last hammer dracula film. not a good way to go out. yech. was it a cop movie or a vampire movie. the only decent scene is with dracula sitting behind the desk in silhouette. creepy!

Is either version on DVD 16/9 enhanced ?

Technically not the last Hammer Dracula film (that would be LEGEND OF THE SEVEN GOLDEN VAMPIRES), but it's the last one featuring Christopher Lee.

I have the Anchor Bay Double Feature with Dracula Prince Of Darkness and it is not 16:9 enhanced.

It looks like shit on my 37 inch LCD.

I think those early AB Hammer discs look like shit even on a standard def TV set. You're better off going region free and buying the more recent anamorphic dvds through amazon.co.uk. They're super cheap, too.
