Starring Lon Chaney Jr (son of Lon Chaney Sr), not only is this one of the best vampire films of the Golden Age of Horror but the most controversial. Was Chaney miscast? Is he playing the original Count Dracula or his offspring? The script cannot decide. Another excellent book in the Tom Weaver SCRIPTS FROM THE CRYPT series includes the film's shooting script and copious and fascinating behind the scenes MAKING OF information. A superb book about a superb movie.
