This month, it's a double-header, double-feature, or double-bladed lightsaber of a month because Erik, Kyle, and Sean are discussing two films with one script. First, the 1931 Tod Browning-directed Universal horror classic Dracula starring Bela Lugosi, and the 1931 Spanish-language version of the same movie being made on the same sets at night. We all know the Bram Stoker novel (or at least its million adaptations), but never before have two films been so similar and yet so incredibly different as these two are. Which is better? Is the Spanish one really the superior, or is that just the hipster mentality? And what exactly happens to Renfield when the Brides get him?
