Bela Lugosi as DRACULA (1931)


I completely missed Bela Lugosi's birthday on October 20th! I feel like a pretty stupid horror movie fan. Well- even though I prefer him in THE RAVEN, THE BLACK CAT and THE DEVIL BAT his best known role is still one for the ages.

It's a must see for any film buffs. I hadn't really seen it straight through until Universtity film studies class. Those two years worth of Thursday film labs in the big theatre were my favorite times of the week. We saw and learned about everything from the silent era to then (1987).

My fav with him is White Zombie! Oh and The Mark of the Vampire!

WHITE ZOMBIE is another good choice. I also get a kick out of his Poverty Row creepers INVISIBLE GHOST and THE CORPSE VANISHES. They aren't really very good but they have a vibe I enjoy.
