Count Alucard finds his way from Budapest to the swamps of the Deep South after meeting Katherine Caldwell, of the moneyed Caldwell clan that runs a plantation called Dark Oaks. She's obsessed with occult matters. Who better to guide her through this supernatural world than Count Alucard, whose name no one bothers to spell backwards? No one, that is, except the wily Dr. Brewster, an old family friend. He'll join Professor Lazlo, a specialist in the occult, in fighting this "Alucard" and the woman he's influenced. Or has Katherine influenced him? Meanwhile, Katherine's fiancÚ, Frank Stanley, will find his courage and his sanity sorely tested when he accidentally shoots Katherine to death, yet finds that she goes on living.

Really odd film. Not too sure what to think of it at the moment. The exposition was dealt with in an overly talky manner which was kind of annoying but I loved the noir twist that came in during the second half. Dracula was almost a doomed noir protagonist. Chaney was really awkward in this movie but I still dug it.

Chaney Jr. seemed awkward in most of his films. He always seemed like the buddy you'd take barhopping with you, not really scary, but probably capable should trouble arise. Nothing like his old man.
