Our Top 5 Dracula’s Ever
My favorite "monster" is Dracula. Hands down, he is one cool guy. How can a bloodsucker pull off being aloof and charming? I don't know, but he does.
My first sighting of Dracula was in "Abbott and Costello Meet Dracula". It had it's comedic moments, which is why I wasn't really scared. Ever since, I have been hooked.
Forget "Twilight" and all those Dracula wannabes, he is the only vampire! Kudos to NBC for daring to air a Dracula series, by the way.
Here are the best portrayals of Dracula, in my humble opinion.
the first, the classiest, the best. Lugosi first portrayed Dracula in 1931 and has been the gold standard ever since.
Gary Oldman always puts a freaky spin on his characters and Dracula is no different. But, he still keeps the charm to it.
It's all in the eyes. A good Dracula has to have piercing and intense eyes. Score one for Mr. Langella.
His eyes are too creepy, but at least they are intense! Christopher Lee is the scariest and meanest Dracula on the list. Very little charm here.
I always love a Mel Brooks movie! Naturally, the humor is ridiculously over the top, so Leslie Nielson makes the perfect Dracula.
