Dracula

From Murnau's Nosferatu in 1922 to Dracula Untold in 2014 the immortal Count has been captured on the big screen more than any other fictional character. A quick search on IMDB (Internet Movie Database) lists 404 films and TV programmes featuring Dracula, and second place goes to Sherlock Holmes with a meagre 292 on-screen credits! We've collected a number of trailers of films the Count has appeared in - because of the nature of Dracula some of these may not be suitable for younger audiences. Click a title to see the video...
