Dracula's Daughter (1936)



Reviews and Comments

They don't make them like this anymore. Where today's horror movies try to one-up each other at shocking their audiences with front-and-center violence, the early Universal horror films achieved a more gratifying subtle effect by suggesting evil in the shadows and corners of ordinary life. Even this middling entry in the Dracula series is effective in this way. It hangs a creepy composite of humor and horror on an uninspired story and turns it into something surprisingly compelling. Gloria Holden is mesmerizing in the title role.
