366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 286


The Date: July 12

The Movie: Mark of the Vampire (1935)

What Is It?: Tod Browning’s sound remake of his own London After Midnight still sports a disappointing denouement, but the spookiness that precedes it is aces. Great, creepy graveyard sequences, and it’s always a pleasure to see Bela Lugosi donning the cape, even if he isn’t doing so as Dracula. That surreal scene where Carroll Borland descends from the ceiling on giant bat wings is worth the price of admission alone.

Why Today?: On this day in 1880, Tod Browning is born.
