DRACULA'S DAUGHTER / Universal Studios - 1936

It's Vampire Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots a weird one starring Otto Kruger playing Jeffrey Garth and Gloria Holden as the mysterious Contessa Marya Zeleska from Transylvamia.

Eegah!! sent over a fun lil' soundclip from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the battery powered vampire cross, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... DRACULA'S DAUGHTER!

Bloodless corpses are starting to appear in London once again after a brief hiatus!.. Well, better call on old Professor Von Helsing for some help.

The Contessa goes to the police station to explain the reason she's in London. The police sergeant is mesmerized by her presence.

Odd looking Irving Pichel plays her faithful companion and helper, Sandor.

The Contessa has come to London to seek the aid of psychiatrist Jeffrey Garth, she wishes to free herself from a mysterious evil influence she suffers from. At their first meeting, she manages to make Jeffrey's girlfriend, Janet, a bit jealous!

Sandor goes out and finds a suicidal woman on the wharf to take back to the Contessa for...

You figure it out!

Anyway, you get the picture, the woman ends up dazed in the hospital after their meeting.

Jeffrey's brought in to hypnotize the woman to find out what has happened to her, she tells about what the evil Contessa and Sandor are up to, they have kidnapped Janet and taken her to Transylvania!

Jeffrey takes the first train out of Clarksville and arrives at the village where the Contessa lives, you can see her castle at top right.

Jeffrey finally gets into the castle (after being shot at by Sandor with a crossbow!) and finds Janet in a trance, under the total control of the Contessa.

Sandor flinches and the Contessa gets an arrow in the gut... Game over, man!

We'll end with this nice title lobby card.

Agreed! And having Edward van Sloan to reprise his role from DRACULA as Dr. Van Helsing was brilliant!
