To be honest, I'm not that crazy about horror movies as much as I love the visuals (like stills or posters) of a good old spooky motion picture. ♡ That said, I've been recently really interested in exploring some influential horror classics like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Nosferatu or Dracula.
Yup, a little pop culture lesson coming your way. (~￣▽￣)~ Well, Bela Lugosi was a Hungarian actor who oddly didn't speak English well and allegedly learned his lines in Dracula phonetically. That, together with his accent and unusual ways of pronouncing words, sure attributed to the buildup of his Transylvanian movie character.
The movie itself was filmed in 1931. which means in time when silent movie directors just began playing with the new aspect of motion picture - the sound. It almost look a bit experimental with it's long and silent movie scenes. Also, spooky castles, bats and spider webs may seem like a cliche now but this is where this whole thing started as something new and fresh. That's what makes this classic a true piece of art. 〠_〠
