Count Dracula is one of the classic movie monsters created by Universal Pictures between the 1930's and 1950's, and arguably the most famous of them.  He's an iconic character, who has been imitated countless times over the decades.  

Why He Rocks

  • Amazingly creepy design, from his pale skin, to his long, black cape.  
  • Incredibly creepy, sleezy voice that Bela Lugosi was able to give to him.  
  • So many of Dracula's traits have become iconic and been imitated for decades to come, from the tone of his voice, to his mannerisms.  
  • Some awesome lines of dialogue that are infinitely memorable, and instantly quotable.  
  • Dracula's incredibly likable on the surface, capable of effortlessly blending in with society and charming those around him, so they'll never suspect him as the culprit.  
  • That hypnotic stare...

Bad Qualities

  • Bela Lugosi had no direct sequel to his original 1931 movie, except for Dracula's Daughter, which he doesn't actually appear in at all.  
  • The Dracula in all of the other movies is not played by Bela Lugosi, except for Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.
