Dracula (1931)

I know this is a “classic” but this is bad. No atmosphere. No sense of threat, tension or peril. Lugosi is hammy as hell. Kinda stupid overall. Even for 1931, this is poor. Look at Whale’s direction on Frankenstein then watch this. The difference is night and day. Such a flat, boring experience, even at 70 minutes. Two stars because, yknow, it’s Dracula.

Watched on blu-ray
