Count Dracula--single Hammer Films-era vampire figure

About to do what Dracula does best and make an impression on a helpless, but very attractive female victim.  On the other hand, he might just be leaving for a night at the opera. If so however, he really should wipe the fresh blood off his wickedly long fangs!


The original Count Dracula was a creation of author Bram Stoker in his gothic horror novel ‘Dracula’ in 1897.  Count Dracula is an ‘undead’, centuries-old vampire from Transylvania who inhabits a decaying castle somewhere in the distant Carpathian Mountains.  As a student of the ‘Black Arts’, he had a deep knowledge of alchemy, magic, and a particular fondness for the fresh blood of beautiful young women, preferably but not exclusively… virgins.

Although introduced and made famous by Bram Stoker, the Count has achieved worldwide notoriety and immortality thanks to Hollywood and the ‘Silver Screen’.  Many famous and well-known actors have portrayed the blood-sucking Count in countless film adaptations among the most memorable was the Hungarian, Bela Lugosi, who starred in the title role of the 1931 film and several more in the years afterwards.

The next major star to take on the role and make it his own was the British actor Christopher Lee, who appeared in numerous Hammer Films from 1959 up to the 1970’s.  It was Lee who fixed the classic image of a tall, dark and handsome vampire villain with dual, elongated fangs and a thirst for fresh blood!

As a lover of classic Hammer Horror movies, this is my little ‘homage’ to a great, blood-curdling fictional character and things that go bump in the night…

"Things that go bump in the night…"

DRACULA was originally a novel by Irish author, Bram Stoker, published in 1897.  It tells the tale of a Transylvanian nobleman, Count Dracula who is a vampire with a fondness for the blood of young virgins.

The story of Dracula has been the basis for numerous films and plays with Bram Stoker himself writing the first stage adaptation which was presented in London a few months after his novel was published.

The first film to feature Count Dracula was a Hungarian silent film ‘The Death of Dracula’ released in 1921.  More international fame came to the vampiric count with the 1931 Hollywood version of ‘Dracula’ starring Bela Lugosi which prompted several more sequels during the 1930s and ‘40s.

In 1958 the British movie company ‘Hammer Films’ added to the Dracula Legacy with their own interpretation starring Christopher Lee which built upon the earlier Hollywood movies and their visual style but with the bold addition of full colour and gallons of fresh, fake and very red blood!

Lee’s portrayal was overtly sexual and paid prominent attention to his vampire fangs, the delicious necks of his female victims and their heaving bosoms atop their low-cut nightgowns and dresses.

Christopher Lee continued throughout the 1960s and ‘70s to occasionally portray the count and his appearance and costume has been part of the inspiration for this new K&C Horror Stories figure along with a nod or two in the direction of the great Bela Lugosi who brought the count to the silver screen decades before.
