Is Dracula From 1931 Worth Watching?

On Vamped we published my third instalment of “A Virgin’s View” this week and as per Anthony’s recommendation, the feature film of choice is Dracula (1931).

For those of you unfamiliar with “A Virgin’s View,” this is where I watch and review a classic vampire film, without knowing anything beforehand. Everything is off limits until I have seen the film and written my review.

Having already reviewed Nosferatu (1922) and Vampyr (1932) I was hoping this film would live up to it’s reputation and appeal to me more. It’s interesting how each film my brain somehow makes a reference to another film.

For instance, if I said Nosferatu reminded me of the 1965 musical comedy hit Cat Balou starring Jane Fonda and Lee Marvin can you make the connection? Probably not.

Spoiler alert, Dracula reminded me of the 1978 musicalĀ Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. Go figure!

Anyway, lets lift the curtain, and take a look into the classic world of Dracula with Bela Lugosi on Vamped.
