It's a case of lightning-in-a-bottle casting and there's no way of telling if anyone else as Dracula would've become the model for every single Dracula that followed. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- ...it's clear that the movie simply doesn't hold up terribly well all these years later. Full Review

Not by any means the masterpiece of fond memory or reputation, although the first twenty minutes are astonishingly fluid and brilliantly shot by Karl Freund. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- Certainly it is Lugosi's performance, and the cinematography of Karl Freund, that make Tod Browning's film such an influential Hollywood picture. Full Review

...Where this version really scores is in its sheer strangeness...

An exciting melodrama, not as good as it ought to be but a cut above the ordinary trapdoor-and-winding-sheet type of mystery film. Full Review

Rating: 70/100 -- Lugosi's seminal performance and the striking opening act are what distinguish Browning's version of the classic tale. Full Review

Product Description:

This is the first screen version of Bram Stoker's famous tale based on the smash hit stage production. Count Dracula (Bela Lugosi) arrives in London and immediately works to enrapture and transform into vampires young Lucy Weston (Frances Dade) and her friend Mina Seward (Helen Chandler). After he succeeds in turning Lucy, and Mina's health suddenly deteriorates, Mina's father (Herbert Bunston), calls in a specialist, Professor Abraham Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan). Van Helsing quickly recognizes Dracula's vampirism, and sets about saving Mina (and in the process, becomes Dracula's archenemy). The film, arguably the most influential of the legend's film versions, launched Lugosi's career in horror movies and forever invited vampires across Hollywood's threshold.

Production Notes:

  • Bela Lugosi played the role of Count Dracula in the stage play.
  • DRACULA was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 2000.
  • This film was followed by a sequel in 1936, "Dracula's Daughter" directed by Lambert Hillyer. Tod Browning's "Dracula" was also followed by many other film versions of the Bram Stoker tale. There was the classic Hammer "Dracula" made in 1958 starring Christopher Lee and directed by Terence Fisher. That was followed in 1973 by a version starring Jack Palance in the title role. It was produced in Great Britain and directed by Dan Curtis. John Badham made a 1979 "Dracula" starring Frank Langella as the Count and Laurence Olivier as Van Helsing. The most recent version is Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 extravaganza entitled "Bram Stoker's Dracula" starring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder and Anthony Hopkins. The granddaddy of them all, of course, is F.W. Murnau's silent 1922 masterpiece "Nosferatu" starring Max Schreck as an unforgettably creepy Dracula. It was remade in color with sound by Werner Herzog in 1979 with Klaus Kinski in the title role.

I got 'The Mummy' at the beginning of the year from Alpha (they had a very limited amount for sale on this site), & it was only $5.95 for a Universal OOP title!!! How do they do it? Get this classic now before it's gone...A must!!!
