Trivia

Top-echelon director A. Edward Sutherland was assigned to direct after James Whale left the project. His contract contained an unusual "Pay or Play" clause, and he earned $17,500 for his involvement in the production. Because of interminable production delays, Sutherland moved on to another project before shooting began. His replacement, Lambert Hillyer, who had directed mostly "B" westerns, earned just $5,000 for directing the film. See more »

Goofs

When the police came upon the mayhem at Carfax Abbey (caused in Dracula) in the first scene, where were the primary witnesses, Mr. and Mrs. Harker? Their names would certainly have come up at some point while Dr. Von/Van Helsing was being booked and the crime scene was being examined. Furthermore, their suspicious departure from the scene should cause them to be regarded as fugitives and suspects. Yet they are never mentioned in this movie. See more »

Quotes

Janet Blake: Well! You might say, "Good evening."
Dr. Garth: Good evening. What are you doing here? I thought you'd severed all connections with the hospital.
Janet Blake: I changed my mind.
Dr. Garth: I detest vacillating women.

Different but solid official sequel to the classic "Dracula".
13 June 2005 | by Boba_Fett1138See all my reviews

This movie literally starts off were "Dracula" finished. Since it is a sequel you would expect only more of the same old routine but "Dracula's Daughter" is surprising original and good on its own. This ain't your average bloodsucking vampire movie.

Thing that was best about this movie is that they came up with a quite original and solid story that goes deep enough and features some strong and interesting characters. It's not like they wanted to surpass the original "Dracula" movie or became too dependent on the events that occurred in that movie. Instead they just tried to be original and create a new and different kind of vampire movie.

Only returning character is professor Von Helsing (why did they ever changed his name?) played by yet again Edward Van Sloan. Van Sloan truly was a fantastic actor, I already loved him in "Dracula" and in this movie he reprises his role with just as much flair. Another actor that impressed me was Irving Pichel as the creepy looking Sandor.

It's definitely a movie worth watching. It never becomes scary, mysterious or tense really but the story and acting are what makes this movie a very solid one.

8/10
