Mark of the Vampire (1935) is a great movie. Bela Lugosi is great as always but the stand out performance of this movie is really Carroll Borland as the vampiress Luna. We will get to her in a bit but first I want to briefly touch on the four actors were have seen before. This movie is a remake of the silent London After Midnight (1927) starring Lon Chaney Sr.
Lionel Barrymore played the role of investigator Professor Zelin. We introduced Barrymore in Episode 25 – Key Largo (1948).
