    History of Dracula



    Screw Joblo, but I like this video, so I was wondering as a Dracula fan who are people's favourites to play the role?

    I think Bela Lugosi definitely deserves the top spot.

    That first image intrigues me. It's from a lost film, but apparently it's not actually based on Stoker's novel.

    I think it's safe to say that when the word "Dracula" is said out loud, the image of Bela Lugosi is the first thing people see.

    I would say that Dracula is Lugosi. His appearance is nothing like the novel's but yet, he is without a doubt, the most iconic representation of Dracula, ever. To this day, cartoon vampires are doing Lugosi impressions.

    Coming in October, I'm gonna see Dracula in theaters.

    Cool video. While Lee is one of my absolute favorite actors of all time and is famous for his portrayal of the Count, I think Lugosi is the best. His iconic performance is truly memorable. If you haven't watched it in a long time it warrants a re-visit.
