John Carradine was an American actor known for playing various roles in horror films of the 1940s. His earliest known horror film was the 1933 James Whale adaptation of H. G. Wells, The Invisible Man. He made a cameo appearance in an uncredited role as one of the villagers of Iping. He also made an uncredited appearance in another James Whale film, The Bride of Frankenstein. He later began getting starring roles playing the part of Dracula in films such as House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula. He was the first Hollywood actor to succeed Bela Lugosi playing the infamous vampire count.

Carradine passed away in Milan, Italy on November 27th, 1988. His final film, Buried Alive was filmed in 1988 but released in 1990, two years after his death. His legacy lived on however, and stock footage of Carradine was used in the 1995 direct-to-DVD low-budget film, Jack-O.
