Sorry but this is a terrible film, the sort that gives "old black and white movies" a bad name among the general public.

So venturing back to movies like this I've been finding that just because they're old, doesn't mean that they are classic. This movie stunk.

Classic horror film. Also the one that introduced Vampire fiction.

My first viewing, and it holds up pretty well; thanks to its atmosphere and the iconic performance by Bela Lugosi. 6/10.

Bela Lugosi as Dracula was really bad. I Wish Dwight Frye could have played that role instead. He was brilliant as the character of Renfield.

It is bad. It's only memorable for Bela Lugosi. Frankenstein is much better.

Unintentionally hilarious, especially the guy playing Harker.

I feel like this early horror film is so hugely influential and so many films have repeated parts of its formula that it can be hard to truly evaluate its merits today. Bela Lugosi is great and so are a lot of the sets and the mood that the film generates. It has eerie-ness down pat. Oh, and I really liked the over-the-top Renfield.

I do have some complaints however. Because this is such an early sound film, the sound design is pretty terrible. There are extended moments of complete silence that could have been filled with some kind of musical scoring or sound effects. The moments I am thinking of stand out because it feels like something is missing. They lessen the impact for me.

To back up what other users are saying: Nosferatu is the much better version of the Dracula story.

Bela Lugosi was great as Dracula. That's it. This movie was truly painful to watch for me.

About as brilliantly campy as it gets, but for genuinely good horror you should probably check out Freaks or, indeed, the original Frankenstein.

i actually preferred dracula to frankenstein, which came out the same year. i agree this movie is unintentionally hillarious, but i think it makes it more watchable.
