“Drink a pint of blood a day”. Country of origin UK Quad film poster for Hammer Horror’s 1970 victorian vampire gorefest “Taste The Blood of Dracula”. Tom Chantrell has produced a classic horror poster; fantastic close-up Dracula imagery and liberal use of bold colour; black, white, yellow and red, blood red to be precise and lots of it, combine to create Hammer’s goriest poster yet. The tagline “Drink a pint of blood a day” indicated the campier, tongue in cheek direction that the studio was taking at the start of the 1970s. A desirable item of Hammer Horror memorabilia and one of the most memorable Dracula movie posters produced by any Studio.
