The Movie: House of Dracula (1945)
What Is It?: The golden age monsters reunite for one last go round before hooking up with Abbott and Costello and swooshing into parody for good. Not that this story is serious stuff. John Carradine’s Dracula seeks a cure for his vampirism as Lon Chaney’s Larry Talbot does the same for his werewolfism. Onslow Stevens is the mad doctor who tries to accommodate them and Poni Adams is the rare female hunchbacked assistant.
Why Today?: Today is World Blood Donor Day. Just don’t donate any to Dracula.
