Frankenstein, Bride of Franenstein and Son of Frankenstein are some of my favorite old, old, old school horror movies.

As for those not voting for Dracula, good for you. I think the character's blood sucking gimmick is more memorable than anything that takes place around him.

Well now, that's not entirely true. While Lugosi was over the top in his performance, he managed to scare the hell out of the audiences of the day. The Renfield and Van Helsing characters were vital in holding the movie together. Other than Christopher Lee, I haven't been able to accept anyone else in the role of Dracula.

I think it was Karloff.

That's right. Karloff didn't want to tarnish the image of Frankenstein by appearing as the monster in a comedy. Physically I don't think he could do it anymore due to all the back issues the part caused him in the past. I know that Karloff was part of the publicity of the film since he was still under contract with Universal. Still I could have sworn that Lugosi and/or Chaney also had reservations about their roles in the film.

More and more of them are popping up on Netflix: Watch Instant, so I'm going to watch Invisible, Mummy, and Bride soon.

So far, I thought The Wolf Man was the best.
