The Horror of it All!

- Top 21 Portrayals of Dracula -

- but which actor's performance as the vampire count is the greatest -

Bram Stoker's famous villainous vampire, from his massively influential Gothic novel - Dracula (1897), is one of the most portrayed horror characters in Movie and TV history... but whose is the best? We've selected the top 21 most notable, memorable or worthy performances from which you can choose your favourite three.

I’d just like to make two points before starting the list – 1, Max Schreck’s Count Orlok IS Count Dracula (but that name couldn’t be used for copyright reasons), and – 2, Christopher Lee is listed twice on purpose (once for his role in the famous Hammer movie series that started in 1958 and again for another entirely separate movie role in Jess Franco’s Count Dracula in 1970).

You can comment on, discuss and debate this list and POLL by replying to the blog post HERE - and, if we've missed your favourite, you can suggest others there too.
