Posted Tue Jun 11, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The Hammer Films classic starring Christopher Lee will come out of Blu-ray's coffin in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Millennium Entertainment is working on 'Dracula: Prince of Darkness' on Blu-ray on September 3.

In this sequel to Dracula (1958), four English tourists are holidaying in the Carpathians when they meet the unconventional Father Sandor (Andrew Keir) at an inn. He warns them to avoid the local castle if they value their lives, but the next day the quartet find themselves stranded in the mountains after their driver abandons them. When a driverless carriage arrives they board it, intending to travel to the nearest village. However, the carriage instead takes them to the very castle which Sandor warned them against, where they are welcomed by Klove (Philip Latham), sinister manservant of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee)...

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $35.99.
