film summary
For years there have been questions about the real identity of the title character in the Universal horror classic SON OF DRACULA. Despite the obvious evidence of the film's title, some claim that the character is not Dracula's son but Dracula himself. In the film itself Dr. Lazlo states that the vampire Count who arrived at Dark Oaks (who's name spelled backwards is Dracula) is probably a "descendent" of the original Dracula. Yet some still insist that "Son of" in the title is a misnomer and merely a generic sequel term not meant to be taken literally. Since Kay Caldwell, the Count's newly undead bride, reveals that Count Alucard's real name is Count Dracula and a connection is immediately made to the well-known Hungarian vampire, many believe this indicates that he is actually the original Dracula.
