Horror Scenes I Love: John Carradine in House of Dracula


Today’s horror scene that I love comes from the 1945 film, House of Dracula!

House of Dracula may not be a classic but John Carradine definitely made for an intriguing Dracula.  Far more than Bela Lugosi or even Christopher Lee, Carradine matched the physical description that Bram Stoker offered up of Dracula in his famous novel — tall, aristocratic, sophisticated, and disdainful of the world around him.  Of course, Carradine’s American accent is all wrong for the role but no matter.  He’s Carradine!

This scene features Carradine as Dracula, casting his hypnotic spell.
