TCM is preparing a double dose of DRACULA for Halloween


Turner Classic Movies is giving you two chances to see the original 1931 DRACULA on the big screen in October. Even better, each screening is being packaged with 1931 Spanish-language version of the film, creating a monster-sized double feature.

I've been pretty vocal about my love of the Tod Browning/Bela Lugosi feature. But, if you haven't seen the Spanish-language version — shot after hours using the same sets as Browning's film — you're missing out. It's actually a better film than the Lugosi version, save for one critical casting decision: Carlos Villar√≠as as the Count. As my grandmother used to say, "He'd have to stand on a step ladder just to kiss Bela Lugosi's ass."

The first screening is set for Sunday, Oct. 25, with an encore taking place Wednesday, Oct. 28. The package runs a little more than three hours and is rated PG-13 for some reason. Find a screening in your area by visiting Fandango's event page HERE.
