Dracula is the infamous 1931 Universal Studios adaptation of the classic horror novel by Bram Stoker that stands as the most beloved version of the tale ever put on film. The tragic Renfield (Dwight Frye, Frankenstein) arrives in Transylvania to complete a transaction with the Count which will allow him to lease an English castle. Before they leave for England by ship, Dracula turns Renfield into a quasi-vampire who obeys his master's every command. Upon arriving in England it is discovered that all of the ship's crew have been murdered and only a raving lunatic of a Renfield remain alive. He is committed to a sanitarium run by Dr. Seward (Herbert Bunston). Dracula seeks him out and discovers Seward's comely daughter Mina (Helen Chandler) and her friend Lucy. Dracula quickly dispatches Lucy and sets his sights upon Mina whose fianc'e Jonathon Harker (David Manners) is baffled by her sudden change in health and personality. Seward consults with a colleague Dr. Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) who quickly identifies the source of the problem as a vampire. They soon expose Dracula for what he is and it's a race against the forces of evil!moreless

    Dracula is the first Universal Monster and the first film is definitely one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. I enjoy the settings and creepy atmosphere. And I do get scared when Dracula uses his hypnotic gaze. Dracula is also a very great villain, and is more than just a vampire. He likes to socialize with others and even shows respect to Van Helsing.
