Critic Reviews for Dracula vs. Frankenstein
Mesmerizing in its sheer awfulness.
Pure schlock; an embarrassment for the veterans involved.
The title is great. The movie is not.

Audience Reviews for Dracula vs. Frankenstein
So bizarre. So entertaining. You can spot exactly where the movie ceased to be a Poverty Row horror-mystery throwback and where the Dracula/Frankenstein scenes were stitched in when the original vision must've come up short. Love J. Carrol Naish's and Anthony Eisley's changing hairstyles (the obvious result of their turning up for another day's work months after the fact).
LON CHANEY JR & RUSS TAMBLYN in the same film? You might ask yourself; "How can you go wrong?". And you need only watch this little gem, to see all of the ways you / they CAN GO WRONG. To start there is the sad realization that Chaney's role here (one of his last) is one of few words and consists of moans, grunts and overly dramatic close-ups. And Russ Tamblyn is all but a "blip" on the screen before (Chaney himself) "gives him the axe". Once you get past that, there is the fact that "Dracula" for some reason appears to be of middle eastern decent and speaking through a really bad P.A. system and that "Frankenstein's" head appears to have been made of papier-mache...it's all good! The definate "star" of this show is Regina Carrol as Vegas Superstar "Judith Fontaine" forced to take a sabbatical from her big Vegas show (the clips of which are a high point of the film) to go to California to look for her missing sister. To put it kindly, Regina / Judith is a "hot mess" and at the same time a delight to watch. Her film credits on IMDB sound AMAZING and I want to see them ALL. While I wouldn't recomend this film for "horror fans"...I would HIGHLY recomend it for fans of "cheesy 60's & 70's horror". It's painfully bad at times, yet (in this instance) I really appreciated it's badness.
Don't be suckered in.
