House of Dark Shadows picture

Taste the Blood of Dracula picture

Continuity mistake: The footage of Dracula impaled on a giant golden crucifix at the end of 'Dracula Has Risen From The Grave' is re-cut for the pre-credit sequence of this film. However, when the second film continues, the golden crucifix is missing in the background, behind Dracula's powdered blood and collapsing cloak, creating a continuity error with perhaps an unusual reason for happening. Hammer props department may have rid themselves of the crucifix between films shot a year apart.
