Since Bram Stoker published his gothic novel in 1897, the iconic vampire Count Dracula has been brought to life countless times. For many people, Bela Lugosi plays the one true iteration of the character but others prefer a more updated version.

Maybe you like one that is closer to the original book? Or perhaps you prefer a funny version of Dracula? Now is your chance to make your opinion known. Choose which Dracula is your absolute favorite and see if your taste matches everyone else!

I had to go with Christopher Lee, because of the body of his work. Lugosi only played him twice. (he also provided a life mask for Dracula's Daughter)
I think they should have included Francis Lederer from "The Return of Dracula", and a Night Gallery episode.

Christopher Lee is the clear choice!!

I remember being frightened by Palance in '74 (2nd grade), he's from my neighboring town you know and I saw him in 1993 or 94 at our Boscov's shopping at the last minute!!

I also loved Mr. Barlow in Salem's Lot ( I know, not Dracula per se) played by Reggie Nalder.

I thought Duncan Regehr in “The Monster Squad” gave an excellent performance. Anyone who would call a 5-year-old girl the “B” word sounds like the epitome of evil!

Four performances missing that should be included:

1. Max Shreck, the very first Dracula in “Nosferatu, A Symphony of Terror” (1922)

2. Jack Palance in a made-for-TV movie version (1974)

3. Louis Jourdan in a British TV movie (1977)

4. Klaus Kinski in “Nosferatu the Vampyre” (1979)

The original with Bela Lugosi was the best but I loved George Hamilton in Love at First Bite.

What about Eddie Murphy in “Vampire in Brooklyn”?
Tresix stinkshorts 7 months ago
Murphy wasn’t playing Dracula.

He almost got caught because the people thought he was black chicken flying around, and they wanted to eat him. :)

I grew up watching Frank Langella & Christopher Lee as Dracula. Had such a crush on ‘em. Gary Oldman was quite alluring as well but lacked the classy camp of the others.

hands down 2thumbs up Christopher lee was the very best at playing count dracula..bela lugosi couldn't hold a candle to the acting Lee did as portraying the evil vampire that was out for blood...bela should have been a shoe salesman.....

Gary Oldman;
IT IS NO LAUGHING MATTER!!! We Draculs have a right to be proud, what devil or rich what ever so great as a killer whose blood flows through these veins. Blood, Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!! The best lines ever written into a script for the character of Dracula.

I'll have to say my favorite vampire movie is Fright Night 1985, and the remake from 2012. Both are great and different enough from one another.. Bela best Dracula, just the 1st one that I remember as a kid, and you never forget the 1st one.
