Trivia

Director Lambert Hillyer was injured on the 9th day of production (according to publicity, Friday the 13th) when a free-standing fill light toppled on his head. Nearly half a day of shooting was lost when he was briefly hospitalized. However, filming started February 4, 1936 and finished March 10, 1936, and there was a Thursday the 13th, but no Friday the 13th in that time interval. See more »

Goofs

Dracula's Daughter opens showing the aftermath of the mayhem at Carfax Abbey, which happened in Dracula. Although a 1930s audience, who had neither television nor home video, could never notice this, it is obvious to modern DVD enthusiasts that the positions of the bodies and furniture, scattered about, are grossly inconsistent between the two movies.

Better than Dracula?
11 April 2000 | by (Lurking about in the fog) – See all my reviews

To be honest I normally shy away from reviewing the classics. Rather stick to the lesser known shadowy obscure films to warn you about and/or poke fun at.But every so often there is a film that has a bad rap that is undeserved or the film is misunderstood and ol skip has to scream at the injustice. Dracula's Daughter is such a film.

There is no need to go into the plot in detail.Dracula's daughter appears in London. She steals and burns Dracula's corpse.Thus she feels she is free of the taint of vampirism with the death of her father.But she isn't and tries to enlist the aid of a psychiatrist to help cure her.

The film is atmospheric, foggy and great fun.Gloria Holden is superb as the Countess and Pichel is slimily evil as her human familiar.The drawback to the film is the extremely obnoxious leading man who is totally unsympathetic and unprofessional(but yet true to life).

This isn't hampered by the drawing room bound settings that slowed Dracula to a halt.Definitely a classic to enjoy!
