  • Editorial Reviews

    The original Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi, launched the Hollywood horror genre and defined the iconic look and frightening character of the famed vampire. Towering ominously among the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains, Castle Dracula strikes fear in the hearts of the Transylvanian villagers below. After a naive real estate agent succumbs to the will of Count Dracula, the two head to London where the vampire hopes to stroll among respectable society by day and search for potential victims by night. The inspiration for hundreds of subsequent remakes and adaptations, this classic film directed by Tod Browning, is the signature adaptation of Bram Stoker’s story with its eerie passion, shadowy atmosphere and thrilling cinematography.

    In some ways, this is actually a better movie.
    M. Oleson
    Bram Stoker's vampire novel has been remade dozens of times, but perhaps the best adaptation is the classic Bela Lugosi version.
    E. A Solinas
    This Blu-ray has good picture and sound, neat extras and includes the Spanish version.

    Format: Blu-ray
    Although I've seen this classic Universal film dozens of times starting at about age 10, this is my first look at the excellent Blu ray transfer available as a stand-alone film or part of the "Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection."

    The well-known tale stars Bela Lugosi in his most recognizable role. The Hungarian actor also played the character in the stage production from which much is adapted for this early talking picture. Some will snicker at the mannerisms and heightened theatrics more common in the theater. Even as a great admirer of the movie, I chuckle when I see a couple armadillos scurrying across Dracula's Transylvanian castle.

    Lugosi, still struggling with English accentuates his dialog not only with an unusual cadence, enunciating each syllable but seemingly each letter. But Bela was a charmer, especially of the ladies which transformed the Count from the Dracula in Bram Stoker's novel and the first production on film, "Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror" (1922). In F. W. Murnau's film, the Count (Orlok) was ugly, sinister and more in tune with what Stoker had in mind.

    One of the things that always bothered me about the film was the lack of a musical score. The story has extended moments of silence, except for noise coming from old tape or DVD transfers. The cleaned up version here, eliminates almost all of the surface noise, and makes the silence even more...well silent. I much prefer the included optional Philip Glass score performed by The Kronos Quartet. I was fortunate to see Glass perform this live accompanying the film a few years ago in Dallas. Which ever audio track you prefer, the sound quality has never been better.

    This exquisite 1080p transfer maintains the original 1.33:1 aspect ratio and includes a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.

    Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
    I Grew up watching this film when it used to be broadcasted on Late night TV
    there's a bit of Horror in the film but most of the film is more of a Thriller
    so i have alot of respect for this film especially cause it's in black & white which makes it special
    colour prints were available but very very expensive in 1930 that is why the film is in black & white
    but cause of Technology reasons, colour prints wouldn't of been Good quality anyway
    it does not matter, the film is special in Black & white, it would look strange in colour i think.

    in 2006 Universal released the 75th Anniversary edition of this film which i bought
    which is a 2 Disc set, the U.S. version on Disc 1 and the Spanish version on Disc 2
    along with tons of special features
    2 Audio commentary tracks by Historian David skal and another commentary by Steve Haberman
    who wrote the screenplay for Dracula-Dead and Loving it
    plus the Road to Dracula Documentary which is the making of the film and couple other featurettes
    the U.S. version released in 1931 is based on a stage play
    and in 1930 Universal had a very tight budget and had to cut alot of scenes out from the script
    before they filmed the scenes
    that is why the U.S. release only goes for 1 hr 15mins
    the production was cut aswell that is why the film looks like a play on stage actually
    i only realized this when i watched this 75th Anniversary edition

    But the Spanish version does go longer about 1 hr 45mins which is about 105mins
    i have watched both versions
    the spanish version is very similar to the U.S. version but with extra scenes of course
    that ties the story together, so not only is the movie longer
    but the Production is twice as big as the U.S.

    **** Out of 5

    Tagline- Carl Laemmle Presents the Vampire Thriller!

    Release Date- February 14th, 1931

    Running Time- 75-Minutes

    Rating- NR

    Screenplay- Garrett Fort (Novel- Bram Stoker)

    Director- Tod Browning

    Starring- Bela Lugosi, David Manners, Helen Chandler, Dwight Frye and Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing

    Released in 1931 Dracula is probably the most influential vampire film ever made and one of the biggest hits in the legacy of Universal Pictures. Since its release the good portion of vampire films have taken many elements from this film and every actor to portray Count Dracula is directly inspired by Bela Lugosi (and from time to time Christopher Lee). As much as I enjoy Dracula I'd rate it behind the first 3 Frankenstein films as well as the Wolf-Man, but with that said I actually think in some ways Dracula might hold up a little better than those films (along with the Wolf Man). Obviously in many areas the film is dated as 1931 is far, far behind us and times change and filmmaking techniques change. But I still find Dracula to be an effective chiller and while it may no longer be scary it's still loaded with eerie atmosphere and I'd go as far to say that since the end of the 30s (and even the 40s) many horror films lack the eerie feel many films from this era had. Reading some reviews it's quite a shame the modern audience are for a good portion complete dolts who laugh at the film. You don't have to love the film, but its clear on some reviews these people aren't very bright.
