Movie Info

It may be sacrilege to say so, but Dracula's Daughter is an immense improvement over the original 1931 Dracula, despite the absence of Bela Lugosi in the cast. Gloria Holden is first-rate as the title character, alias "Countess Marya Zaleska," who after stealing her father's body from the authorities with the help of her faithful hunchbacked assistant Sandor (Irving Pichel), sets fire to the corpse in hopes of obliterating the family curse of vampirism. Try as she might, though, the "Countess"

A worthy sequel to Tod Browning's Dracula (1931).

The shift from Stoker to Le Fanu remains unmistakable

Dracula's daughter herself is strange and memorable,far better than the tawdry B-movie in which she made her first and last appearance.

Wildly over-rated.

Atmospheric, early Universal horror starring Otto Kruger, Gloria Holden.

The film is so clumsy and so off the mark that it winds up being a throwaway piece, something for Universal Monster completists only.

Although it is a marked improvement on the original film, it's still a bit of a snooze, relying too much on forced comedy and not enough on suspense or fright.

A mournful and somber sequel that is more atmosphere than horror.

March 6, 2003
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A fine fadeout on the best period the horror genre ever had. That things would never be quite this way again, however, makes it a slightly bittersweet experience.

Audience Reviews for Dracula's Daughter

An average horror movie, not very scary at all, I mean she isn't even really Dracula's daughter. It does have a couple of good scenes, but other than that it's just okay.

Dracula's Daughter is a blatant cash in on the success of the original Dracula film. Dracula's Daughter learns of her father's death and seems to seek a way out of the vampire's curse, yet doesn't really try that hard. The film will keep your interest, but that's about it.

Picking up exactly where DRACULA (1931) left off, this sequel has Drac's "daughter" seeking to liberate herself from the curse of vampirism by seeking the help of a psychotherapist. Some interesting twists (Countess Zaleska is both the first tragic vampire and the first openly bisexual vampire), but matter-of-fact vampiress Gloria Holden has none of the sinister charisma of Lugosi.

I was expecting this to be a lot better than I found it to be. Maybe I just couldn't ignore the patriarchal bias which really dates the film.
