Notes

Dracula’s Daughter and Lesbian Erasure”

At the Bite, BJ Colangelo writes about Dracula’s Daughter (1936). “One year after the success of The Bride of Frankenstein, Universal Pictures tried their hand again with another femme facing monster movie sequel, Dracula’s Daughter. Unlike The Bride, Countess Marya Zaleska (Gloria Holden) is a legitimate leading performance and the story of Dracula’s Daughter is her own….Vampirism in this film is coded as queerness and nothing about it is subtle.”
