Chaney Jr. is completely unremarkable as the vampire, and it's kind of a rehash of the Browning film. But it's well directed by Siodmak and features some gorgeous photography and set design. Worth a watch.

O filho de Dracula estreava há 80 anos no México. E eis que encontrei um Siodmak perdido na minha coleção, não tinha ideia que ele tinha dirigido para o horrorverse da Universal, sua mise en scène expressionista com luz e sombras bem marcadas está toda lá, embora narrativamente o filme seja bem tolinho. Mais ou menos como o Sam Raimi ou a Chloé Zhao dirigindo pra Marvel. Box Ataúde Macabro.

A step down in the franchise. Dracula, going by the ridiculous nickname Alucard and weakly portrayed by the far from menacing Lon Chaney Jr., is an extra in his own movie. Thus, "Son Of Dracula" works best when Frank and Doctor Brewster are at the forefront and is given color by the former's unraveling and the latter's search for the truth. The twist is decent, Siodmak strikes up notable atmosphere here and there, and the effects are a mixed bag (the mist's pretty cool, the bat still sucks).

Moves a bit slow, yet has some good visuals and has it's own quality moments. The swamp scene where Dracula floats towards Katherine is utterly fantastic.

Other than more special efx shots of turning into bat&mist & a great coffin hiding place under swamp water (which he contrivedly gives up for no reason), this miscast Dracula engages in too many pedestrian actions (doing his own shoveling, getting legally married) to be impressive/compelling in any way. About 2/3rds of the way in, he’s even more undercut as we discover he’s a dupe for a mortal even more nefarious than he. Still, I have to credit the twist & attempt to do something different.

Son of Dracula sees the Universal Monster series cementing itself into programmer status. I'm continuing to enjoy myself, but we've moved from spooky, shadowy classics to exhilarating camp to films that conjures nostalgia to being a kid watching black and white horror films on PBS at 10pm. Son of Dracula: gateway drug.

Finally, Dracula hits the United States slinking around the southern swamps. A vampire running amok a plantation is a breath of fresh air, all the racism you can sink your fangs into. Lon Chaney Jr kinda sucks (pun intended)

I almost didn't notice that that was Junior in the title role...almost (so kudos to Siodmak for his valiant attempts at salvaging a miscasting). And let's just hope that this was the very first movie to ever come up with that "Alucard" thing (otherwise they've got no excuse at all). Anyway, lots of nice Expressionist touches in the direction.

I always enjoy Universal horror movies, regardless of how cheesy they seem at times. They kept rowing and rowing to try and make Son of Dracula (1943) make sense, which was the most humorous thing about it. Next to Lon Chaney Jr. trying to be the elegant Dracula. Nah, he's better off playing more monstrous monsters. Still there's nothing like the feel of these old creepers.

Lon Chaney Jr. is indeed one of the worst Dracula's ever. The film itself was pretty decent with lots of effects shots. Overall the film is pretty average bogged down with bland acting and a very miscast Lon Chaney Jr.
