Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Once again, Dracula has come to fill the night with terror. But as far as this short-lived franchise is concerned, the goal seems to be less bloodshed and more, how should we say, the precursor to years of vampire heartthrobs...oi vey.

History: Dracula was in fact once Judas Iscariot, the legendary traitor to Jesus Christ. Upon hanging himself after his crimes, the rope broke, and God cursed him to be the first vampire for it all. Now, Dracula lays entombed in London by Van Helsing while he searches for a surefire way to kill him...only for some thieves to steal the coffin and take it on a trip to New Orleans. But Dracula awakens on the plane ride there, and is now free to haunt the modern day, seducing women and bringing forth a new age of vampires.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Dracula is eventually hanged via cables and a large crucifix, the rope strong enough to keep him there as the sun burns him to a crisp...only for the sequels to come in, resurrect his somehow still-intact corpse, have him mess around with a vampire priest, and ultimately have his head cut off while he gets replaced with said vampire priest.

Powers/Abilities: So much as scraping yourself on a vampire's fangs means conversion. Also, he can dissipate into fine mist, turn into a swarm of bats, and is generally immortal.

Weakness: All known vampire weaknesses, but silver in particular unnerves Dracula the most. Sunlight will kill him for sure.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-It's the lord of vampires, what did you expect? Out of all of the vampires though, this one seems to embody the whole "vampires are sex gods" trope the most. He's a monster, yes, but young Gerald Butler was positively ripped back then! A pity his career would nosedive somewhere in 2004...

Trivia: -Dracula may have been played by Butler in the first film, but he was replaced by Stephen Billington and Rutger Hauer in the sequels.

-Due to a late release in Europe, the title was changed to "Dracula 2001" over there.

Christopher Lee was that. Stop kidding yourself.

Oh, you've gotta be...

Mediocrity never dies.
"We were having a moment. A totally normal one."

"No more Twilight predictions! Please!"
"More pixie stix!"

Somebody tell this blonde idiot to hit the road. This series blows.
