http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0021814/

Redatelj: Tod Browning

Glumci:

Bela Lugosi - Dracula
Helen Chandler - Mina
David Manners - Jon Harker
Dwight Frye - Renfield
Edward Va Solan - Van Helsing

Plot:

After a harrowing ride through the Carpathian mountains in eastern Europe, Renfield enters castle Dracula to finalize the transferral of Carfax Abbey in London to Count Dracula, who is in actuality a vampire. Renfield is drugged by the eerily hypnotic count, and turned into one of his thralls, protecting him during his sea voyage to London. After sucking the blood and turning the young Lucy Weston into a vampire, Dracula turns his attention to her friend Mina Seward, daughter of Dr. Seward who then calls in a specialist, Dr. Van Helsing, to diagnose the sudden deterioration of Mina's health. Van Helsing, realizing that Dracula is indeed a vampire, tries to prepare Mina's fiance, John Harker, and Dr. Seward for what is to come and the measures that will have to be taken to prevent Mina from becoming one of the undead.

Vidim da postoji topic o Lugosiu ali ne i o ovom filmu za kojeg se uredno može reći da je jedan od 5 najpoznatijih filmova o Drakuli. Činjenica da totalno odudara od romana i nije toliko smetala već je pospješila nastanku fenomena Drakule potpunog distanciranog od samo književnog predloška te Lugosi i Lee obično prvi padaju na pamet prosječnom gledatelju kada se spomene Drakulino ime. Ultimativan Drakula još do danas nije zaživio na velikim ekranima bez obzira na laži Coppole i/ili njegovih producenata.

Da ne duljim previše o samome liku, ovaj film sam tek nedavno pogledao iako sam ga želio vidjeti čitav svoj život. Konačni rezultat bio je razočarajuć. Činilo mi se da je film pregazilo vrijeme jer scene su u najboljem slučaju duhovite dok u svim ostalima dosta zamorne i neiteresantne. Film spašava jedino klasična atmosfera koja opet nije ne nekom osobitom nivou te snažna karizma samog Lugosia. Čitao sam da je Dwight Frye mnoge oduševio sa svojim Renfieldom dok je meni on srednja žalost; totalno preglumljavanje i karikiranje inače dosta interesantnog lika te mi je čak "nevidljivi" Tom Waits ostavio bolji dojam u Coppolinoj verziji.

U konačnici, godina 1931. bila je godina Drakule i Frankensteina; dok potonjeg nisam još pogledao, za Drakulu mogu reći da ga "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" iz iste te godine šiša u svakome pogledu, od glume do režije, od atmosfere do dijaloga iako se oba mogu pohvalitim jeftinim citatima. Da niti ne pričam o tehničkim inovacijama koje su Jekyll i Hyde posjedovali.

Neznam, meni je film odličan. Da se ne dupliram, tu objasnih svoj stav: http://www.horrorhr.com/dracula-1931/

Ono sa šišmišima na konopcu je :prayer:
...I wrapped our love in all this foil,
Silver-tight like spider legs
I never wanted it to ever spoil,
But flies will lay their eggs...

Dobar film, iako na momente spor. Bela Lugosi svojom karizmom izvlači film, i Renfield je jako dobar. Efekt šišmiša je prezakon, a i prikaz Drakulinog dvorca.

Na današnji dan prije 61 godinu umro je od srčanog infarkta Bela Lugosi. Ne znam ako ste znali, na zahtjev njegove žene i sina, pokopan je u jednom od kostima koji je nosio u Draculi. R.I.P.
