turning into a bat
Eh... I don't think you see that in DRACULA
(1931)... but you do in ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN
So many good horror films. So many memorable images. Anymore?
As to whether "King Kong" is a horror film or not, some say it is. Some say it is not. But I have seen it listed in lists of horror films.
And thanks for correction Allhallowsday. I wondered about that. But I associated Lugosi, as Dracula, turning into a bat, that I had it down as one of my most memorable images, even if I got it in the wrong film.
