I'm not a huge horror fan but I've always been fascinated with the story of Dracula and other vampire tales. Max Schrek appearance in Nosferatu is is unsettling to say the least. It scares the beejeezuz out of me still. Bela Lugosi has this dark and ominous vibe to his portrayal. His expressions and mannerisms are classic. I'm afraid some of it comes off as a vampiric Liberace. Chrisopher Lee is just evil as was Gary Oldman. Many people did not like 1992's Dracula. I guess it was not gory enough. I thought it was great and really stuck to the book. Oldman was fantastic. think he is my favorite Dracula. I'm sure I'm missing others.
