A flawed, self-recommending classic

"I am Dracula. I bid you welcome."

Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula was first translated to the screen in director F.W. Murnau's unauthorised German rendering Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922). Nine years later, Universal Studios produced 1931's Dracula - the first official filmic adaptation of Stoker's novel, with the inimitable Bela Lugosi portraying the titular vampire... read more

The Universal Monsters are a cinematic world that I love to inhabit. Yes, the sets are obviously artificial creations comprised of plywood, paint and an overactive fog machine, but with the proper cinematography, they can be given a dramatic, atmospheric spark. It’s a deliciously oddball world where misfits and damaged souls turn into devilish, monstrous ids who leave carnage and destruction beh... read more

Description: After a harrowing ride through the Carpathian mountains in eastern Europe, Renfield enters castle Dracula to finalize the transferral of Carfax Abbey in London to Count Dracula, who is in actuality a vampire. Renfield is drugged by the eerily hypnotic count, and turned into one of his thralls, protecting him during his sea voyage to London. After sucking the blood and turning the young Lucy Weston into a vampire, Dracula turns his attention to her friend Mina Seward, daughter of Dr. Seward who then calls in a specialist, Dr. Van Helsing, to diagnose the sudden deterioration of Mina's health. Van Helsing, realizing that Dracula i ... (more)

"3.2 Bela Lugosin Draculaa ovat monet haukkuneet jälkikäteen hidastempoiseksi ja tylsäksi klassikoksi. Yhdyn itsekin tähän, sillä kyseessä on yksi yliarvostetuimmista kauhuklassikoista. Tämähän on enemmän vain teatterisovitus siirrettynä valkokankaalle, kuin mikään kokonainen elokuvaversio. Itse Bela Lugosi toimii Draculana, vaikkei yhtä karmiva olekaan kuin Max Schreckin kreivi Orlok alkuperäisessä Nosferatussa. Jotenkin miehen olemus ja tuima katse antaa juuri riittävän hien"

Universal Horror Films - Ranked (16 movies items)

" Dracula is not as good as my memory or its reputation would lead you to believe. For that, it's way too uneven. Even for its time. The first 30 minutes are however excellent. Brilliantly atmospheric with an underlying terror with great sets and memorable dialogue. Bela Lugosi makes the title character his own. He's menacing and charismatic, as well as suitably weird as Dracula. The lingering shots of Lugosi staring and stalking his prey are excellent for this film. Yet, the film starts to fall"

"Re-watch - Dec. 16th Bela Lugosi double-feature I don't own any Ed Wood movies, but why watch them when I can see Bela at his best? I didn't initially plan to watch both films together, but Ed Wood really made me want to watch something with Bela in it and Dracula seemed like the best option. His performance really makes the film worth watching, and Dwight Frye goes above and beyond to bring Renfield to life. The rest of the cast is fine, and my main complaint with this film still lies with the"

Films that absolutely needed that remake. (10 movies items)

"1931's Dracula is considered a classic, but it wasn't very good really. 1958's Hammer version "The Horror of Dracula" and 1992's "Bram Stoker's Dracula" are both better. There have been scads of other adaptations. Some are good and some are bad. "

"27.10. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Tod Browning The film begins very strongly: the Transylvania scenes have a really nice atmosphere and beautiful gothic images. Skipping the mindnumbingly boring sea voyage section, I was expecting to like this more than Murnau's Nosferatu, but then the second is unfortunately drawn-out and uninteresting, what with Van Helsing & co. explaining all things related to the plot and vampire mythology in general. A commendable effort, in any case. P.S. A friend of "
