Back to thrill you and chill you, your horror hosts Kim & Jon return for another Monster Mash! This time around we’re cracking the coffin on the Spanish language version of Drácula (1931). Nearly forgotten and almost lost to time, this early talkie rarity has remained a hidden gem of the Universal Classic Monsters lineup. And depending on who you ask, it’s kinda scarier than the Todd Browning classic that kicked off this whole film series.
Join ussss as we compare this atmospheric monster movie to its companion film and share our thoughts on all the ways Spanish Dráculawas able to circumnavigate the prudish censors of the time (including longer shots of vampire blood-sucking, actual on-camera rats, and *gasp* lowcut dresses) to create another uniquely haunting masterpiece. It’s gonna be a Graveyard Smash! 🦇
