Tobias Nilsson’s review published on Letterboxd:
As Renfield arrives at castle Dracula, in order to get the final signature on a lease of an English abbey, little does he know what plague he is about to bring back home with him.
Happy 90th birthday, old friend!
Dracula, loosely based on the Bram Stoker book of the same name, is one of the giants of the Universal monster films from (one of) the golden era for such films.
Much has been said, and I am not educated enough to truly deep dive into this classic. Suffice to say, that it is a film that I return to every so often, and hail it as a classic every time. I even have a lovely statuette of Bela Lugosi's character, together with Boris Karloff's Frankenstein's monster and Lon Chaney Jr.'s Wolf Man, looking over me at my workspace.
Being delightfully over-acted in places, filled with foggy atmosphere and spiderwebbed castles, this is certified entertainment every time I see it.
