Double bill of vintage horror based on the vampire novel by Bram Stoker. 'Dracula' is based on Hamilton Deane's theatrical adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel. Estate agent Renfield (Dwight Frye) travels to Transylvania to arrange the sale of an English mansion to nobleman Count Dracula (Bela Lugosi). Renfield discovers that his host is a 500-year-old vampire after he is bitten and finds himself enslaved. Returning to London, Dracula attempts to get his teeth into Mina Seward (Helen Chandler), an innocent maiden betrothed to Jonathan Harker (David Manners). Vampire expert Professor Van Helsing (Edward van Sloan) attempts to put a stop to the bloodsucking. 'House of Dracula' was originally made as a sequel to the 1944 film 'House of Frankenstein'. Count Dracula (John Carradine) arrives at the laboratory of Dr Edelman, claiming to seek a cure for his vampirism, but in fact eager to turn Edelman's beautiful assistant into his vampire bride. At the same time, a wretched Wolf Man Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr) asks Edelman to bring his lycanthropy to an end. The first attempt to cure Talbot fails, and he throws himself off a cliff in a bid to commit suicide. This attempt fails, but leads him to an underground cavern where he discovers the monster (Glenn Strange) created years before by Dr Frankenstein...
