List Rules Only movies featuring Count Dracula as a character

A list of the best Dracula movies. This is a list of not just vampire movies, but movies that specifically feature Count Dracula. In Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 version, the terrorizing Translyvanian pined, "I have already dined, and I never drink... wine." Oh, Dracula, you are a hoot. He is among the most iconic monsters in the world, with his coffin, castle, brides, and his ability to turn into a wolf, bat, or mist. When you think of history's greatest vampire, what movies come to mind? After all, Dracula movies are some of the best vampire movies of all time.

Originally published in 1897 and based at least partially on Vlad the Impaler of Wallachia (who was born in Transylvania, a member of the House of Drăculești), Bram Stoker's Dracula has been popular since its first publication. No surprise then that early filmmakers were quick to adapt the story into films about Count Dracula, and the character has featured in more than 200 film adaptations around the world.

If you enjoy Dracula films, then this list is for you. And if history repeats itself, there will be plenty of movies and TV series about Count Dracula yet to come. Vote on your favorites, and please add any that we missed.
