Rating: 3/4 -- The abundance of older features on Blu-rays and DVDs have helped give younger filmgoers an appreciation of classic movies. "They can learn so much more on how to pace and set a scene from Tod Browning over Michael Bay," Mankiweicz said. Full Review

...Where this version really scores is in its sheer strangeness...
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
Reel Film Reviews

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

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.
