120. Dracula (C-)
121. Frankenstein (B)
The Cineplex screened these two 1931 movies back-to-back (they also share two castmembers: Edward Van Sloan, who specializes in playing professors, and Dwight Frye, who specializes in playing ridiculously over-the-top weirdos).
Both of these movies have contributed so much to pop culture iconography that it's hard to overstate their influence, but beyond its historical status there's really not much to Dracula
. It's stagebound, features a lot of rather poor acting (particularly the guy playing Jonathan Harker), and its climax is particularly unsatisfying; when compared with the far more dramatic and dynamic Frankenstein
, released the same year, it seems particularly inadequate.
