retro trailer: ‘Dracula vs. Frankenstein’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

Apparently there’s some sort of vampire movie opening this week. I figured that while we wait for that, we might enjoy another vampire story. Alas that this trailer is rather confusing: Dracula and Frankenstein (by which, it appears, they mean Frankenstein’s monster, not poor Victor himself) join forces but then they battle? Do they start out as friends, united in monsterhood and outcastitude, and then have a falling out? Is this a bromance tragedy, perhaps? Maybe they end up fighting over a clumsy mortal girl who falls in love with both of them and then cannot choose between them? I hate when that happens!

In any event, this must be a very sad movie…

Dracula vs. Frankenstein is available on DVD in Region 1 from Amazon.com and from Amazon.ca and in Region 2 from Amazon U.K.

  • From what I recall of this from a showing on a local equivalent of The Late, Late Show–back when they still actually showed old movies on local TV stations instead of conceding the old movie audience to AMC and TCM–the movie wasn’t that good. In fact, I found it pretty unwatchable. Not so much “so bad it’s good” as “so bad you can’t believe any sane person actually expected people to pay money to see this”. Your robot buddies would probably be pounding their heads on the backs of their theatre seats, this movie is so bad.

    Of course, if you wish to rent it through NetFlix and see if I’m exaggerating, all I have to say is, “I warned you. I warned you…”

  • Heh. From the trailer: “A doctor who serves the dead…”

    A doctor? Or the Docto–No, some ideas are just too horrible to conceive.

    On a more serious note, poor Lon Chaney, Jr. This was supposed to be one of his last films and it certainly doesn’t show him off to the best advantage.

    Poor Russ Tamblyn. It’s a wonder he didn’t quit acting altogether after this. (Of course, today he’s best known as Amber’s dad.)

    Poor J. Carroll Naish…
