Ok kiddies, it's bitch time!
Goddamnit, I'm losing friends over this!
Who in movie history was the best Dracula?

Everyone I know (with the exeption of one guy saying Christopher Lee) says it's Bela Lugosi. I say it's Klaus Kinski in Werner Herzog's 1979 masterpiece "Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht". The only other person who comes close is the highly Gothic representation portrayed by Gary Oldman in Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 version.

Bela Lugosi's Dracula is just too damn campy. Klaus Kinski, on the other hand, is genuinly weird and frightening person, something that most all other Draculas lack. He has the fantastic traditional look of Max Schreck's original Count Orlock, not the look of a $5.99 Halloween outfit.
