film and the spanish DVD release, top score!
Verified purchase
really good transfer and quality, given how old this film is. the spanish company did a great job. the film's ending is completely betraying the audience, but apart from that, it's my fave of all the 1930s/40s Dracula films with some rewarding scenes. highly recommended!

I waited a good many years to see this; found myself wondering: why did MGM bother? It seems Universal's excecutives had a good deal of distaste for horror movies, but MGM! - 'More Stars Than There Are In Heaven' - slick, glossy, money-splashing, conservative...
Odd that they should have (mis) cast Donald Meek, so lovely as the nervous whisky-drummer in 'Stagecoach' (superlative Thomas Mitchell sampling his stock). Odd that they should have miscast Lionel Barrymore (Lionel Atwill playing second fiddle). Odd that they should have criminally wasted Lugosi (did he need the money? I expect so). Still, it has a fair beginning and Carol Borland is quite yummy as the female 'vampire' (surely the original for Maila Nurmi's creation on American TV). Not a bad atmosphere to it here and there - and certainly a cut above either 'Dracula's Daughter' or 'Return Of The Vampire' (why did Columbia bother?) - but not as good as 'Son Of Dracula' (in spite, really, of Lon Chaney Jnr.)
Very good DVD presentation, by the way, on a par with Karloff's 'Fu Manchu'.

Lionel Barrymore shines in this well polished tale
Tod Browning he who directed the original Universal Dracula returned 4 years later to direct this sometimes spoof and tongue firmly in cheek suspense thriller where Bela Lugosi and his daughter may or may not be vampires. Lionel Barrymore steals the show as the Professor who is determined to get to the bottom of the case. The ever reliable Lionel Atwill also stars as the Inspector.

What you may notice is how Barrymore's character reminds one of Doc Brown from the Back to the Future movies. Quite uncanny, is Christopher Lloyd a fan?

Mark of the Vampire is also a remake of Tod Brownings 1927 silent horror London After Midnight. After this movie, Browning would only go on to direct 2 more movies, and because of this Mark of the Vampire does feel like his goodbye to horror with a wink at the viewer.
