I always wondered why Dracula only chose to turn women into vampires? He must have been a real pimp.

In fact I think the term "Brides of Dracula" was only invented by the 1932 movie because in the book they didn't have any names and their relationship with Count Dracula was never made clear. They were just female vamps who lived in his castle and were most likely transformed by Dracula in the same manner Lucy was.
Did they use the phrase,"Brides of Dracula" in the 1932 film? Oh wow, I didn't even notice that. Shame on Drac for polygamy, amIright?

Lol yeah like where does he think he's living, Saudi Arabia?

Not that I see anything wrong with polygamy or Saudi Arabia of course.

And I never actually watched the 1932 movie but I just assumed they got their name from that movie but maybe I'm wrong? I wonder who came up with the name "brides of dracula"? They were never actually called that in the novel.

Oh, I got ya. Probably the only reference to brides of Drac are in the movie Brides of Dracula, the Utah Years.

Poor Count Orlock had no pretty vampire brides I guess because he wasn't as good-looking as Count Dracula.

Speaking of "Lucy", in the novel I felt that she was a tragic character. She was a beautiful young woman who had three men competing for her love (a psychiatrist named John, an American cowboy named Quincy, and a lord named Arthur).

When Dracula killed her and turned her into a vampire the three men who each loved her had to team up with Johnathan Harker and Van Helsing to hunt her down and kill her (again) in order to free her from her vampire existence.

It was sad.

Has anyone seen shadow of the vampire? Does it make me a bad person to admit I liked that more than Nosferatu?

It's a fictional take on the making of Nosferatu.

*GASP*

What a horrible thing to say!

I loved the concept of Shadow of the Vampire so much that I came in with lots of expectations! Unfortunately for me, it didn't meet them. I didn't really like Shadow, but I probably ruined it for myself. What happened in the story is about what I thought would happen, but how it was done wasn't my cup of tea.

I get it though, most of the silent film formats are harder to get into... the text frames, the over acting, and freeze in place poses.
