Dracula's Daughter Reviews

December 28, 2018
This 1936 release suffers from the absence of Bela Lugosi and the graceless hand of silent-western director Lambert Hillyer.

That rare thing, a sequel of true merit.

Moody, beautifully shot and saturated in an atmosphere of bleak hopelessness.

Unsatisfying sequel to Dracula.

Bit of a bore with Count Dracula nowhere in sight. His daughter reluctantly bares her fangs. Can vampires even have children?
December 7, 2012
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.

Apart from its haunting, low-key mood, the film is also notable for its subtle suggestion (hardly expected from a former director of B Westerns) of the lesbian nature of the female vampire.

A cute little horror picture. Be sure and bring the kiddies.
October 12, 2005
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.
June 5, 2004
On a large budget and high hopes, Dracula's Daughter exceeds expectations with its methodical pacing and oppressive, melancholic tone.

A mournful and somber sequel that is more atmosphere than horror.
July 30, 2002
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.
