Dracula (1931) Review:

This huge classic by the Universal was also the film that started the fabulous career of Bela Lugosi. No need to say that he nailed the role so much that when someone’s talks about Dracula, he is often the face that comes to our mind. His voice and accent are simply perfect, and his gaze terrific.

This taken aside, the movie is good, not huge…but good. The plot is a little different from Nosferatu. I personally prefer the Nosferatu story because some of the scenes in this version of Dracula, such as the discussion between the doctors, are a bit lengthy.

Still, there are many unforgettable moments. The face-off between Dracula and Van Helsing is a masterpiece. The great music throughout the movie makes it a very intense experience. A movie that anyone, horror lover or not, should see once.
