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 is indeed a vampire, tries to prepare Mina’s fiance, John Harker, and Dr. Seward for what is to come and the measures that will have to be taken to prevent Mina from becoming one of the undead.

Film Review

Dracula is definitely one of the very few classic horror movies I've been able to see in my lifetime and I feel like it's just stuck in the middle of good and bad. Sometimes the story threw me off, and there were some moments when I couldn't take the acting seriously, or something would always looked off, but the scenery, the settings, the sounds, the eerie feeling, all of the artistic qualities just made me really happy. I wasn't really happy with the story and how it was put together, but I just really appreciated the moments that really kind of made you uncomfortable, in a slightly horrifying way, which was what I had hoped for going into this film.

Bela Lugosi creates the modern vampire in a movie that is anything but modern. The iconic Count Dracula would become the template for nearly all vampires and similar ghouls. Bela's performance transformed the vampire from a cadaverous ghoul into an suave aristocrat dominating the weak willed. Most of the acting aside from Lugosi's, Sloan's and Frye's is awful with awkward pauses between lines and actions. Characters will often make a single appearance and disappear from the movie, never to be mentioned again(Dracula's brides). For all the fantastic and terrifying powers the Count is said to posses, most of his strength is portrayed through dialog between characters, probably due to budget and technical limitations. The character Dracula is a classic, forever memorable. The movie itself is not quite as timeless.

I know "Dracula" is the classic iconic horror film that "started it all" & paved the way for all the other great horror classics at Universal. Such as "Frankenstein", "The Mummy" & "The Invisible Man" etc. But the truth is "Dracula" is a disappointing classic. It starts out excellent & strikingly atmospheric & visually creative for the first 30 minutes or so. Renfield's (Dwight Frye) visit to Count Dracula's Castle is amazingly dreamlike, surreal & chilling & scary & at first he's rational & sane as he encounters the vampire. Bela Lugosi is absolutely mesmerizing & chilling as Dracula.But as soon as the story shifts from Dracula's Castle in Transylvania to London, England the film deteriorates & falls apart & never really recovers from the excellent Transylvanian scenes. It becomes too theatrical & resembles a stage play with too much talking &#x2…
