Lee and Lugosi. Palance and Jourdan did well as did Max Shreck.
A bit of fluff: The 5 Best (and 5 Worst) Dracula Performances
I picked the first two, but you forgot Dracula vs. Frankenstein from 1971. They added hippies and bikers for the win.
The Christopher Lee movies, I use to get nightmares every saturday night after watching the matanees
That is the first choice on his list!
Interestingly enough however, was that Tomb Of Dracula artist Gene Colan & inker Tom Palmer based the appearance of their version of Dracula on Jack Palance, before he ever even played the role. So in an offhanded way, that fits.
Jeffrey Tambor, in "Saturday the 14th"
I didn't forget that one.
I've tried to forget it for years myself.....
Gary Oldman's is by far the scariest.
But the bloke who did the one-off in the Buffy series was interesting.
You got it! The first time you see him in that cape,
one instantly is reminded of Lugosi. I also enjoyed
seeing Simon Ward appear as well.
'73 was a GREAT year for TV horror. Two icons,
same year! I'm of course referring to this and
"Frankenstein: The True Story".
That is a good version. "Butthead"? Crawling up the wall? I'm in!
Who dat? Doesn't resemble Kinski much.
Someday someone will produce a Dracula as a pothead
just so Drac can quip,
"I never smoke ... tobacco."
Lulz ... I remember this turd as a kid, hilarious! A critic wrote
Frank's face was a melted rubber mask. Ms Regina wasn't too
hard on the eyes ...
... and Frank Zappa as Drac!
The real interesting thing about his portrayal is in his initial scenes,
his characterization is the only one that suggests a cadaver.
His ring was cool, though. You can buy one on Etsy.
willem dafoe - shadow of the vampire
Didn't know of this. This Halloween, if available. Thanks!
Only cool gumball machines could carry that ring as a prize!
Grandpa Al Lewis
Highly recommended. It’s not actually a Dracula film, but a sort of “What If” story about the filming of the original silent film Nosferatu.
AGREED! I enjoyed many that year...
yea, the good Dracula!
