A tedious tale with perhaps the worst performance ever in a film by Lon Chaney, Jr. A fencepost has more charisma than Chaney as Count Alucard. Painfully slow and awkward.

The script is far from wonderful, and offers Siodmak little to get his teeth into, notwithstanding a beautifully atmospheric first entry for the Count (Chaney and coffin rising from the misty depths of a lake) and an effective finale.

Tired and dreary, the youngest of the Count's clan fails to measure up to his classic dad and his older sister.

Despite all the accepted props, from the lonely Southern plantation set in a miasmic bog to the squeaking bats and creaking coffins, this thriller is a pretty pallid offering.

Chaney is the least magnetic actor to don the Universal cape and fangs, though Siodmak rolls with it and surveys the studio's vampiristic paraphernalia with humorous verve

While it is quite silly and suffers from one of the worst casting decisions in the 33 year history of the classic Universal horror, Son of Dracula is actually halfway decent.

All you have to do is get past the clumsiness of Lon Chaney, Jr., in the lead role, and you're off to enjoying one more of Universal's dependably enjoyable monsterfests.

It's a good entry of its type.

Aside from the big hole named Chaney in the middle of the film, this is one of the most interesting ... entries in Universal's long-running series of monster movies.

The supporting cast, the direction and the musical score help, but Chaney is a serious stumbling block.
