Dracula's Daughter

The 1936 sequel to the original Universal Dracula film.

This cut-rate sequel toDracula, sans Bela Lugosi, turns out to be an unexpectedly sleek and stylish movie. Gloria Holden, tall, dark, and continental, is the aristocratic title character fighting her nature and seeking a cure for her affliction. A sympathetic … see full wiki

Picking up the story literally moments after the events of the first "Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi, DRACULA'S DAUGHTER (1936) has always held a fascination, largely thanks to Gloria Holden's nuanced performance in the title role.

Countess Marya Zaleska (Holden) is a beautiful member of the aristocracy with a dangerous secret; fits of uncontrollable bloodlust and the need to stalk and kill pretty young girls...not to mention a biological link to the old Count you-know-who. The sexual ambiguity of the Countess adds lots of dark layers in this moodily-lit horror favourite. The performances are very strong, particularly Otto Kruger, Marguerite Churchill and Irving Pichel as the Countess' menacing servant. Gloria Holden's subtle performance in the title role is a marvel to witness.

Recommended.
