Son of Dracula (1943)

*** out of 5

Lon Chaney as "Alucard" (Dracula spelled backwards) is not *quite* as good as Lugosi, and J. Edward Bromberg is not an especially compelling substitute for the Van Helsing character played by Edward Van Sloan in the first two films, but this is still a good addition to the classic franchise. Despite a handful of slow moments, it offers some impressive process photographic effects for when the vampire characters transform to mist, an unusual sad ending, and a dramatic death scene for Chaney
