List items

  • Count Vladislaus "Vlad the Impaler" Ţepeş Dracula the third, prince of Transylvania, second son of the House of Basarab, once a member of the sacred order of the dragon.

    ...And he does NOT sparkle.

  • Verona, Marishka, and Aleera Dracula. Usually just living props, until "Van Helsing" made them badass minions and characters in their own right. In any case, they're still sexy.

  • "Even a man who's pure in heart,

    And says his prayers by night,

    May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms,

    And the Autumn moon is bright."

  • Personally I think a good name for her is "Evelyn Frankenstein". Mary Shelley nicknamed the first monster "Adam", it's only fitting she should be his Eve.

  • Ugh, who filed this? It was Fritz, goddammit, FRITZ!

  • Imhotep, faithful high priest to the Pharaoh Amenhotep, buried alive for over 3,700 years

  • Created the mummy archetype we know today

  • What truly makes Dr. Griffin dangerous is that he's smart enough to know how to use his ability to its greatest potential. He knows his limits and finds ways around them.

  • Definitely the least remembered of the Universal gang

  • He was the Hulk before it was cool

  • And I mean the real "living corpse"-like Phantom, not the half-masked pretty boy version!

  • From Casper to Krueger to Slimer, these disembodied spirits can more than prove just how 'fraid a them you should be!

  • The Galloping Hessian of the Hollow

    This guy terrified the hell out of me as a kid

  • Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

  • Very few people these days realize Ghouls are actually a specific creature, not just another word for "monster".

  • Often mistakenly called "Nosferatu" after the movie he starred in. ("Nosferatu" is just another word for "vampire")

  • It's rather frightening: I'm still not sure how much of the movie was fantasy and how much was reality.

  • Fun fact: her book was written 26 years before Dracula. Also, she's the original lesbian vampire.

  • The slaves of a long-lost ancient Sumerian society. Their movie also comes with a neat little educational segment about the history of 'hollow Earth' theory.

  • From the old serial "The Phantom Creeps"

    His creations include an 8-foot-tall robot man, a "Devisualizer" belt that turns him invisible, and mechanical spiders that release a powerful gas that induces suspended animation

  • From "Son of Dracula". Unless that was just Dracula in disguise. The movie was kinda vague about it.

  • From "The Man Who Laughs".

    He was an inspiration for Bob Kane while creating the Joker. That should tell you something.

  • Screw Disney, this used to be a horror flick

  • The Great Old One himself. Older than the very universe itself.

  • Beezelbub. Lucifer. The Lord of Darkness. The Reaper of Souls. The Really Angry One.

    He created Dracula. He is the source of all Earthly evil. He is THE "Big Bad".
