  1. Erwin Schussel

    Frankenstein 1931 and Dracula 1931 are excellent resources on the plots, casts and the making of these two iconic film classics. Recommended for fans of these films in particular, the horror genre in general, and students of film history.

  2. John Michael Martin

    I Bought the Dracula 1931 Ultimate Movie Guide, from you guys at MAGNA Horror-Con, Sunday 12th July 2015… BEYOND AWESOME! Congratulations! Your efforts have surpassed EVERY-SINGLE fan publication since the Movie was originally released in 1931!!!

  3. Classic Monsters Customer

    A great and informative read about a movie I love.

  4. Dacre Stoker

    I picked up a few copies of these myself while at Horror Con UK to enlighten my friends back in the US. The Dracula Guide is full of wonderful tidbits of lore and facts, the photos are awesome, a must have for Classic Dracula fans!!

  5. Evan Libro

    Very informative book. It provides insight and details of the movie and the background of the actors.

  6. Alex Hopkins

    This is the definitive look at the classic 1931 film. A perfect companion for those familiar with the movie and also those who are discovering it for the first time. The author’s passion for Dracula is palpable. It’s written in a delightfully accessible, quirky way and is also beautifully illustrated. A superb exploration of a great film.

  7. Peter SJ

    This is a smashing little book and easy and enjoyable to read. It isn’t so much the Dracula movie appraisal – lots of people have done that – but loved the fascinating insights into the film crew and minor actors included in this book in the form of one-or-two page articles.

    A nostalgic look-back into the infancy of the horror film industry and an era long gone now – I’m beginning to get morbid! Anyway this book is a real gem – don’t miss it.

  8. Rachel Mallett

    Any fan of the classic Bela Lugosi Dracula will love this ebook, but you don’t have to be a horror obsessive to get a lot out of it. It’s clearly been a labour of love for the author, without being sentimental or rose-tinted about the subject matter.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how much information is packed in, not just about the main stars, but about crew members and the events “around” the film, like the stage adaptation which preceded the film, and of course Bram Stoker’s original novel.

    All in all, a very satisfying and enlightening read.

  9. Christopher Beach Eddy

    Thanks for the great customer service and finding a more affordable US shipping option. I ordered a subscription and physical copies of the books, but I couldn’t wait and downloaded the pdf’s. Thumbs up and highly recommended – as a graphic designer, I really appreciate the nice, clean design. Can’t wait for the magazine!
