Return Of Dracula: Terrible Movies #34

A trench-coat is not a cape. Take the cape off Dracula, and you've got an ordinary (albeit undead) guy with dental problems and a distaste for garlic who never appears to actually bite anyone. Or worse yet, you've got those kids from Twilight who all look angsty and nauseous. None of those things are particularly frightening. Neither is small town America, bad wallpaper, the 1950's, convertibles, a day-for-night shot where a butterfly flutters by, or picket fences, and none of those things belong in a Dracula movie. I did like the very, very brief moment when the film goes from black and white to technicolor like the 1945 version of The Picture Of Dorian Gray, but it was literally 3 seconds. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
