The Monsters That Made Us #19 – Son of Dracula (1943)
Join “The Invisible Dan” Colón and “Monster Mike” Manzi as they head down to the bayous of Louisiana for some Southern Gothic vampire action in 1943’s Son of Dracula! They discuss Lon Chaney Jr.’s divisive performance as the nefarious Count Alucard, Robert Siodmak’s directorial debut with Universal, new vampire abilities, and why the film remains an interesting take on the classic Dracula formula despite a flawed screenplay.
