      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Dracula's Daughter extends the Universal horror myth in an interesting direction, but the talky script and mild atmosphere undermine its ambition.

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader This 1936 release suffers from the absence of Bela Lugosi and the graceless hand of silent-western director Lambert Hillyer. Dec 28, 2018 Full Review David Thompson Time Out Apart from its haunting, low-key mood, the film is also notable for its subtle suggestion (hardly expected from a former director of B Westerns) of the lesbian nature of the female vampire. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Frank S. Nugent New York Times A cute little horror picture. Be sure and bring the kiddies. Mar 25, 2006 Full Review Sara Clements them. One of the more fascinating entries. While many of the lesbian vampire films of old used the predatory lesbian and “bury your gays” tropes, this 1936 horror film is an introspective piece that leans into the experience of internalized homophobia. Oct 26, 2022 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand Universal’s cut rate sequel to Dracula sans Bela Lugosi turns out to be an unexpectedly sleek and stylish movie. Oct 15, 2022 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast More fascinating than effective, Dracula's Daughter nevertheless gave us a queer icon for the ages.

      Valerii Ege D Opening and process offers some interesting final but you never get what you think. It should have been much much better. At least the movie introduced me to Marguerite Churchill and Nan Grey. Short-day profit. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/03/23 Full Review Steve D Takes the series in a great new direction with a sympathetic new monster. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review Liam D While not as good as Tod Browning's Dracula it's still an enjoyable sequel with some ahead of the times themes Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/04/22 Full Review gary y This is a fantastic sequel to the 1931 Dracula, and shows the curse of Dracula on a young woman who most desired to be free. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Picking up from where "Dracula" left off, this original sequel avoids being a rehash and is instead much more grounded in reality. Arguably more of a mystery flick with film noir elements than a horror movie, it nails and benefits from the refreshing tonal change. Janet is a promising supporting character and the Countess's ambivalence - her desire to fight the obsession which overpowers her - is a noteworthy plot point that broadens the film's scope even if the end is a little too conservative. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Creepy,ultimately sad, but compelling horror flick. Ahead of it's time, with pretty obvious lesbian overtones.
