Film: Dracula (1931), House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945), Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

Alias: Count Dracula, Baron Latos

Type: Mystical

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Of all the monsters that Universal famously conceived back in the day, none was perhaps more evil than Count Dracula. The prince of darkness and lord of the vampires, this creature of the night would lure unsuspecting victims in with his charisma and charm, and then make bloody meals out of them when they least expect it. Suffice to say, he was not a nice guy.

History: Count Dracula's been living the majority of his life in a massive castle, but recently he's been growing weary of his surroundings. No doubt because of the various, and in some cases misplaced, pests that litter the lower area. He hopes to lease a place in London, but first he needs to abide by the legal system a little. No wait, scratch that, he's the almighty arch-vampire and he'll get whatever he wants whenever he wants it!

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Dracula's been stabbed and stuck in the sunlight many times, but his ultimate demise came at the claws of Larry Talbot, an infamous werewolf that pounced him when he entered bat form, causing them both to fall into the ocean below.

Powers/Abilities: Dracula can transform into a bat and hypnotize people into a trance.

Weakness: Dracula cannot stand crosses or wolfbane. He is also allergic to sunlight.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Unless everyone's carrying a cross, then Drac has access to quite the food supply. It is how faux-affable this guy can be that makes him more than just a credible threat. So whenever you see a lone bat flying around, beware.

Trivia: -Dracula as a whole was based on Vlad "The Impaler" Dracula, a Romanian prince that had a raging hard-on for killing people to the point where his murder-sprees were documented in the first German best-selling books!

-Dracula is famously played by Bela Legosi in the first film, but for the "House" movies, he is played by John Carradine.

"Oh, and say that Armadillos aren't scary and I'll convert you instantly."

Wait until the Mason family rises.

A little too much detail on the ressurection.

Much better than the Devil Times Five.

These 3 landlords are hell, I tell you.

"My final film as Dracula and I must fight idiots. Sigh."

So, he's a spider?

Yeah, a bit redundent here.



"You disgust me. Therefore, I shall remain hidden."
Strangest passion, until the Sonic fanbase came in.

Dracula's true form? Indicitive.

"Annnnd....there he goes off the balcony onto the pavement."

Betty Boop, watch out! No, really. That happened.

"At least it isn't a Scientology symbol."

THIS is the hunt that ends the monsters lives?!

Wouldn't his eyes start melting.

"Screamy"? WHAT?!

Who could forget the Spanish edition?

"To think...this is not my final fate..."

"'Bout time we kicked them out!"

Yeah, somebody fire the artist.

"This time, I have the spotlight, freak."
