Dracula 1931 vs. Dracula 1992


Fears of the generation: Untitled 1931 vs. 1992 Acting

The acting plays a huge role in this (yes, pun intended.) Film was still getting started in the early 30’s, and the actors and actress were freshly stepping off the stage and onto the set of a movie. Theater calls for the over dramatization of words and emotions, so the acting in this was very memorable for me. I’m not saying that the acting was better, but I can still perfectly picture the way Dracula’s eyes widened as he rolled his tongue while slowly saying, “I am Drracccula.” There was also a lot less dialogue in the earlier film, so when they did speak, their words lingered in my head because I knew those lines were important to the story.Untitled1
