Indifferent Dracula's Daughter (1936) -- There are one or two things that make this sequel to Dracula interesting.  One is that is genuinely attempts to tackle (usually in dialogue) the ideas of death and its connection with evil and sin, and often it succeeds.  The other is that the movie is occasionally sexy, with a couple of notable Lesbian scenes (in the vampire style, of course).  Other than these rare moments, however, the movie is kind of dull and often doesn't seem to know what it's doing.  (See Tod Browning for the predecessor, Dracula.  See Robert Siodmak for the followup, Son of Dracula.)
