This weekend marks the 121st anniversary of the publication of Bram Stoker’s seminal novel DRACULA. Stoker’s epistolary horror classic was neither the first nor last vampire tale to be written, but it succeeded in thrusting the vampire into mainstream consciousness and effectively demarcating a specific contemporary interpretation of the mythological figure for the next one-hundred years.
Universal’s mastery of the macabre was waning to a ridiculous degree in the mid-to-late 1940s. The sentiment seemed that the age of vampires, wolf men and phantoms was slipping away and being discarded to a bygone era. In 1948, Universal drastically shifted gears toward a more comedic approach when it came to create their once dark horror films.
