    Props to Bela Lugosi, but my favorite Dracula is Gary Oldman.

    Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi as Dracula in Ed Wood.

    Brilliant performance.

    Not necessarily a favorite, but I did enjoy Jack Palance as Dracula in a TV movie. (in the 70's, I think?) I thought he gave a very creepy performance.

    Its a bit like "who was your Doctor Who"
    I grew up with Christopher Lee scaring the wotsits off me so, the wonderful Mr Lee for me.

    Absolutely a great pair! He was my goodie as well, but Lee was a spine chilling baddie when viewed from behind our couch! :)

    Whenever I think of Christopher Lee, my first thought is of The Wicker Man. The ending when Lord Summerisle is coldly explaining to Sergeant Howie what is about to happen to him and why is just chilling.

    To me, the Frank Langella Dracula was the scariest, partially because Langella looks a lot like my stepdad, and that just freaks me the hell out.

    Gary Oldman did a great Dracula; really outside the mold.

    Max Schreck's was great as Count Orlaf/Nosferatu, which isn't Dracula, but still one hell of a creepy vampire.

    I love the 1931 Dracula movie directed by Tod Browning. Bela Lugosi put a stamp on that role that hasn't died in 80 years....for generations, he IS Dracula.

    If you watched Coppola's Dracula, you may have noticed that he took some of the dialogue verbatim from the 1931 version.

    Lugosi still owns it.

    That would lead me to wonder if the films are both using the dialogue from the original book, especially being that Coppola's move is titled 'Bram Stoker's Dracula'.
