Bram Stoker’s seminal horror novel Dracula has seen countless adaptations on the big screen yet none are quite as memorable as Tod Browning’s eternal classic, Dracula. Although a loose adaptation of the book, the film has shaped our idea of who or what a vampire and this is no doubt due to Bela Lugosi’s brilliant turn as Count Dracula. In it he hypnotizes a British soldier named Renfield into being his mindless slave as he travels to London and takes up in an old castle. As vampires do, he starts sucking the blood of young women until one catches his fancy. Unfortunately for her, she’s the daughter of the prominent doctor and vampire hunter Van Helsing!
