It’s nearly Halloween! And that means you have to be thinking about scary films, and every Christmas list needs some scary treats on it (even if it’s just to stock up for next Halloween!). This is a Universal horror film. In the 30s, Universal was a pioneer in the horror genre, making scares a legitimate mainstream form of entertainment.
Their version of Dracula, directed by Tod Browning, stars Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi as the neck-biting horror icon. His performance is marvellously creepy, and although the adaptation could be seen as a little silly, it’s great fun. I’m so glad Universal has remastered it in HD for a Blu-ray release.
Dracula (1931), directed by Tod Browning, is released on Blu-ray by Universal Pictures, Certificate PG.
