(1931) dir Tod Browning w/Bela Lugosi, Helen Chandler, David Manners [75 min; 35mm]
Bela Lugosi’s signature role as Count Dracula is legendary – and rightfully so. Somehow he was able to combine just the right amount of charm, menace and otherworldliness into his portrayal of the undead count who seeks to leave his dreary Transylvanian castle for the more fertile hunting ground of London.

Three Reasons to see DRACULA this Friday:

  1. “The sets are perfect examples of 1930s Hollywood grandeur, which has since been replaced by CGI and smaller budgets.”
  2. “Lugosi’s performance, as well as Dwight Frye’s Renfield, both of which stand up against any current incarnations of possession.”
  3. “[T]he high drama that no longer seems at place in current horror films.”
