Glad to see someone stand up for A.D 72. I always thought that was unfairly derided. That, along with Satanic Rites, are probably my two favourite Hammer Dracula movies (not Vampire movies though).
I particularly like the way Satanic mixes 70's culture/cop drama/horror movie together.
I think they got released the same time Texas Chinsaw and Exorcist and this made them look like watered down horror.
These days you cant look at them and feel scared but they're still both fine entertainment.
