25 Dracula movies and TV shows

by kriitikko | created - 28 May 2018 | updated - 28 May 2018 | Public

In chronological order 25 movies and TV shows featuring the most famous vampire of all time: Count Dracula. Focusing on those where Dracula is a central character so no team-up films like "The Monster Squad" or "Van Helsing" or "Hotel Transylvania", and no Universal or Hammer sequels. The quality differs as this is not a list of the best, but rather a look through how much character has changed in the last 100 years of pop culture.
