  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Dracula's Daughter is a horror film from 1936 by Universal. It was the first sequel to the Bela Lugosi vehicle Dracula. Lugosi also appeared on some promotional stills, but he isn't featured in the actual film.

The film continues where the last one left off. Two constables stumble upon the corpses of Renfield and Count Dracula. They also meet Professor Van Von Helsing who tells them what has happened. Baffled by his crazy story, they call in Scotland Yard for help. Threatened with execution or the madhouse, Van Von Helsing calls for old student of his, psychiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Garth, to help him clear himself.

At the same time, Countess Marya Zalenska, the title character, steals Count Dracula's body and burns it on a funeral pyre, hoping that she'll be set free from his vampiric influences and could begin a life as a normal woman. After this fails, she turns her attention to Dr. Garth, hoping that psychology is the way, despite the warnings of her servant Sandor.

The producers did their best to tone it down, but the film is still has some Les Yayness evident.

Was followed by Son of Dracula in 1943.


This film provides the examples of:

 "Unto Adonai and Astaroth, into the keeping of the lords of the flame and lower pits, I consign this body, to be for evermore consumed in this purging fire. Be thou exorcised, o Dracula, and may thy body, long undead, find destruction throughout eternity in the name of thy dark unholy Master.”
