Son of Dracula (1943)

I watched the first Universal directed movie by thriller specialist, Robert Siodmak, the 1943 Son of Dracula on Svengoolie. Lon Chaney Jr. plays Count Alucard (Dracula backwards) in the third Universal Dracula show, the first two being Dracula and Dracula’s Daughter, and the first bringing the vampire to America. Lon Chaney Jr. played four of the Classic horror monsters in, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster and The Ghost of Frankenstein, The Mummy’s Tomb,

The Mummy’s Ghost and The Mummy’s Tomb. He was in lots of other horror and western flicks. The film also stars Robert Paige, Louise Allbritton, Frank Craven, J. Edward Bromberg, Patrick Moriarity, Evelyn Ankers (The Wolf Man, Hold That Ghost,The Ghost of Frankenstein, Son of Dracula, and The Frozen Ghost), Adeline De Walt Reynolds and Etta McDaniel (sister of Sam McDaniel and Hattie McDaniel (Gone With the Wind).

This is a very good Dracula movie and I’ll give it 3.8 out of 5 stars. Read more on Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
