MORD39 RATING: *** out of ****

First and foremost, Lon Chaney's underrated performance in this film must be addressed. The name of the movie is "SON of Dracula," and Chaney is playing an off-shoot of the Count, not the actual King of Vampires Himself. It is true that Lon is in a tad over his head, but if you accept that he's not THE Dracula, it's a fine performance.

Who says that vampires must look or speak a certain way? Especially given the understanding as suggested above? A line in this film says that the vampire might be - quote- "a descendant of Count Dracula". And of course, we have the title itself to explain the Count's identity.

Anyway, SON OF DRACULA is one of Universal's best 40's shows, filled with mood and atmosphere. A new plotline is introduced as we have a morbid woman (played wonderfully by Louise Allbritton) who wants to use the Count for her own scheme. It's original, even by today's standards, and a good horror movie.
