'Horror of Dracula' Gets High-Def Restoration Treatment   

November 12, 2012 Hammer Films' 1958 classic "Horror of Dracula" (or just "Dracula" in the UK) is getting the high-definition restoration treatment in March of 2013 -- and presumably a Blu-Ray.

Hammer's Facebook page just announced:

We're happy to announce 18th March 2013 as the UK release date for Dracula (1958) aka Horror Of Dracula (the BFI's 2007 restoration plus censored footage restored) from Icon and Lionsgate.

Who knows? Maybe there will be a theatrical release too. "Horror of Dracula" is probably the best vampire film ever made and certainly one of the best horror films of all time.
