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.

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.

I had to pick George Hamilton - "Love At First Bite" was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

Christopher Lee!!! Bella may have been the first, but he was a lousy actor. Lee brought pure menace, horror, yet magnetism. The perfect Dracula.

No Jud Hirsch from "The Night Dracula Saved the World"?

Lon Chaney, Jr. for "Son Of Dracula" (Oh, sorry. "Count Alucard" ). However, it was more for the movie rather than for Chaney. He was badly miscast. A better Dracula would have been Basil Rathbone. He had been in "Son of Frankenstein", and was under contract to Universal Studio at the time. Chaney's looks and voice were just all wrong. "Put it out, will ya", was the line that confirmed the miscasting. It had a very good ending. The director was Robert Siodmak and four years later he would win an Oscar nomination for directing the 1946 film, "The Killers", confirming that once in a while a smaller film studio could draw the fifth ace.

I can name a couple more that weren't name "Dracula" but were very convincing vampires. Reggie Nalder who played one of the scariest vampires in "Salem's Lot" from 1979 and Jonathan Frid who played Barnabas Collins in the gothic-soap "Dark Shadows".
