The Lord of Darkness. The King of Vampires. Since his introduction by Bram Stoker in the 1897 novel that bore his name, Dracula has stood as one of the most consistent and famous monsters in pop culture.
Almost every Dracula picture has some value, but these best Dracula movies capture the best the bloodsucker offers.
Rather than make the movie feel redundant, the familiar plot gives Lee plenty of room to stake (pun intended) his claim, establishing himself as a different type of beast than those played by Bela Lugosi and others.
