The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires directed by Roy Ward Baker in 1974, was very much a movie of its time. It combined the then-new trend of kung fu films from Hong Kong with Hammer's classic Gothic horror.
Interestingly, a number of elements in the film, some refererenced by van Helsing, conflict with the continuity of previous Hammer vampire films.
The movie was released with various titles in different locations, including The Seven Brothers Meet Dracula and Dracula and the Seven Golden Vampires.
Count Dracula journies to a remote Chinese village in the guise of a warlord to support six vampires who are dispirited after the loss of a seventh member of their cult. At the same time, vampire hunter Prof. Van Helsing happens to be lecturing in the country and is persuaded by villagers to help them fight this curse of the ages. (IMDB.com Plot Summary)
