  1. Dracula has been one of my favourite characters not just from Gothic horror but of mythic characters in general. I’ve read the book twice and have lost count and track of how many and which movies I’ve seen. I’ll admit that my favourite cinematic Dracula is Christopher Lee’s because of his menacing gestures and expressions and because many of his Dracula films are set in the time the novel is set in. I haven’t seen Nosferatu yet, but plan to soon; I have no excuse not to since it’s the original of all Dracula movies!

    This has been a really good review of the Dracula movies, TV shows and original novel, very insightful and well analysed. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    • Hi Steven! Thanks for taking the time to comment about all things Dracula! There is definitely something about that Hammer Horror Victorian Flair, no? I’m glad you enjoyed the video analysis! 🙂
