Dracula (1931, USA) Review

Dracula (1931, USA) Review

Universal Studios had delved into horror filmmaking with silent films The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) and The Phantom of the Opera (1925), but Dracula (1931) was Universal’s first “talking picture” in the horror genre. Directed by Tod Browning and an uncredited Karl Freund, Dracula was based on the 1924 stage play by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston; adapted from the 1897 novel of the same name by Bram Stoker. After Carl Laemmle, Jr. was able to legally secure the novel’s film rights, screenwriter Garrett Fort began work on adapting Dracula for the movie theater.

“Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.”

Ranking the Best of the Classic Universal Monsters

Ranking the Best of the Classic Universal Monsters

Half of what makes a good horror film is a good monster. Without a believable, and ultimately scary, antagonist there’s not much for the audience to latch onto. No film studio – not even the amazing Hammer Films – has ever been able to hold a candle to the classics, and probably wouldn’t have ever existed without the Universal monster movies of the 1930s and 40s.

“Not since the beginning of time has the world beheld terror like this!”
