Dracula (1931)

  • by

Dracula (1931) starring Bela Lugosi, Dwight Frye, Edward Van Sloan, directed by Tod Browning

Synopsis of Dracula

A truly great adaptation of the classic vampire novel.  Dracula is the story of the European vampire who comes to England to find fresh victims …  And stumbles across a young woman who reminds him of his long-lost love. This is actually based on the Broadway play, and not directly on the original novel by Bram Stoker.

Dracula’s Daughter

  • by

Dracula’s Daughter  (1936) starring Gloria Holden, Otto Kruger, Edward Van Sloan, Marguerite Churchill

I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by  Dracula’s Daughter–the first sequel to the classic 1931  Dracula starring Bela Lugosi.   Unlike so many of the later Universal Dracula movies,  Dracula’s Daughter does not attempt to revive Dracula.  Rather it looks at the aftermath of his destruction, through the eyes of his daughter, Contessa Marya Zeleska. She is a very reluctant vampire, played wonderfully by Gloria Holden.

Son of Dracula

  • by

Son of Dracula (1943) starring Lon Chaney Jr., Louise Allbritton, Robert Paige, Evelyn Ankers

Son of Dracula is a very interesting entry into Universal Pictures’ series of  Dracula movies — and not only due to Lon Chaney Jr. playing the title character — although Chaney does a good job. He portrays Dracula (or Alucard, if you prefer) as a very powerful, savage creature, with only a veneer of culture and civilization. I frankly enjoyed his portrayal very much — although his southern accent was totally out of place for a European character. But as I say, Chaney’s depiction isn’t the only reason that I enjoyed  Son of Dracula.
