Despite it's age, Dracula stands the test of time as one of the best horror movies out there. The characters, settling, plot development, and cinematography don't have too many flaws to them and are easy to get drawn into. The acting leaves a little more to be desired in spots, but it's nothing to scoff at. Script wise, the lines and plot are great, especially for their time. The story does, however, suffer from Sudden Movie Ending Syndrome. That is to say that after the climax, there is no real resolution. That doesn't mean the ending's bad. It just leaves me wanted more in a not-so good way. Those flaws don't stop it from being one of the best classic films out there. Definitely worth seeing for any film or horror film fan.

Dracula (1931 film) was both magnificent in it's storytelling and settings, and it was Bela Lugosi greatest and the most remembered performance of his career.

Despite a constant hanging veil of campiness (particularly with some of the line-reading), 1931's Dracula is a true horror classic that birthed much of the imagery and mythos that has contributed to vampire films over the years. Bela Lugosi gives an other-worldly and creepy performance the set design is impeccably dark.

Dracula is an old movie in every way possible. To the look acting everything else, and it has some interesting nostalgia value but at the same time the aged way it is makes it nor scary or overtly interesting. But you won't be completely bored by it if you appreciate it old style, and Bela Lugosi does make for one very memorable Dracula.

Dracula review

"God will not damn a poor lunatic's soul. He knows that the powers of evil are too great for those with weak minds." Simple, elegant, and unforgettable. One doesn't need extravagant wardrobe or special visual effects to make a great horror film. Renfield (Dwight Frye) is on his way to Count Dracula's (Bela Lugosi) castle. Renfield's sudden change has been studies by Professor Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan). Dracula is introduced to Mina (Helen Chandler), her fiancÚ John Harker (David Manners), and the family friend Lucy Weston (Frances Dade) by Dr. Seward (Herbert Bunston).

Great usage of shadows coupled with a riveting score that makes the scenes extra suspenseful. Camera direction was wonderful while the cast believable Lugosi's method of portraying Dracula was creepy. Sc...

Watch it at night, with the lights out

"Renfield" (Dwight Frey) has traveled from London to Transylvania on business at "Castle Dracula," a run-down castle owned by the mysterious "Count Dracula" (Bela Lugosi in his most famous role which he first performed on stage). The "Count" has decided to leave his native country for London, where he has rented property, to which "Renfield" is bringing him the lease to sign, despite being warned not to go to the castle by fellow passengers on the coach he is riding to the village "Castle Dracula" looks over, and the villagers -- all of which believe that Castle Dracula is home to vampires.

The "Count," who indeed is a vampire, quick;y gains "Renfield's" trust and offers him something to eat. He then places "Renfield" under his power. "Renfield" becomes "Dracula's" maniacal servant wh...
