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 retrospective featurette on the film and couple other featurettes
the U.S. version released in 1931 is based on a stage play
cause Universal had a very tight budget so the production was cut that is why the film looks like a play on stage actually
and only goes for 75mins
the Spanish version does go longer about 1 hr 40mins 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
the spanish producers had lot more money to spend
Great Camera work which was ahead of it's time way back in 1931
personally i prefer the spanish version cause it's more superior version than the U.S. version
on this new blu-ray reissue both versions have been given the same 1080p transfer
and the same 2.0 master audio mix
the picture quality for the spanish version does look amazing the best the film has ever looked actually
but there are some scenes in the castle where the picture quality has deterioated a little there's lot of lines on the screen
the first scene right through til Dracula looks at the Lease on Carfax abbey is very clean picture
maybe some of the original negatives were damaged and couldn't be fixed, it's anybody's guess why
but it happens throughout the film some scenes look fantastic Digitally restored and some scenes couldn't be helped
the U.S. CUT transfer does look amazing quality universal made lots of effort to clean up the picture quality
no Grain no Dirt in the quality the best the film has ever looked actually
both films are in 1:33:1 ratio with black pillars on either side of the screen
all the EXTRAS on this blu-ray have been carried over from the 2 disc dvd set
but tragically the featurettes have not been given 1080p transfers, just the same Digital remaster quality
but nethertheless buy this new blu-ray has both versions of them plus all the extras on 1 Disc
about 4-5stars for this new blu-ray

This is an instant classic horror film. I have loved this movie since I was a kid. Worth buying. Worth watching. I find Dracula's Castle fascinating. I'm not much on Vampire movies. But I like this one. There are a few I do like. The Lost Boys, Once Bitten, Salem's Lot. To name a few.

Bela Lugosi is the man. One of the best Dracula's of all time. it was cool to watch the one from back in the day. Classic.

This rating is for the Blu-Ray Dracula (1931). Universal has done an astounding job in it's restoration, it looks better than I've see it over the last 45 years I've watched it on TV broadcasts and various video formats. By the 2nd scene my wife exclaimed "Wow, this is a really good print". That is a pretty good endorsement considering it's age and condition. The sound has been cleaned up some too, there is still some hiss, but it's been reduced and dialogue is easy to follow now. If you're nostalgic for your memories of heavy hiss and a warbling of the music piece from Swan Lake at the beginning, keep your previous video format, but if you want a superior picture with better black levels, details, stability and better sound, then pick this up.

Bela Lugosi, Dwight Frye and Edward Van Sloan star in this 1931 horror classic
based on Bram Stoker's novel. A seductive vampire travels to London to feed
on some of it's residents. Lugosi will always be the definitive version of Dracula
in my opinion and he didn't even need fangs because his looks and movements
were creepy enough. This Blu-ray has good picture and sound, neat extras and
includes the Spanish version. I recommend this horror classic for your collection.

This version of the Dracula classic is beautiful looking! Remastered the right way, it looks great in 1080p. The audio is DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono which sounds amazing!

Special features like commentaries with film Historian David Skal and Steve Haberman, the alternate score by Philip Glass, Lugosi: The Dark Prince, Dracula: The Restoration, The Road to Dracula, and the Spanish version this Blu Ray is a MUST have for all fans of the Dracula Bela Lugosi classic!

Excellent restoration. Especially the ending of this movie, was something that I never saw. When Dracula was killed, the groaning was very agonizing (this is good, not a bad review). All the other version that I saw, was only one "AH." Now it is several seconds longer. Good job.
