Scariest Universal movie monster: Wolf Man or Dracula?
Bela Lugosi made the role of Count Dracula famous! In the 1931 film, Dracula arrives in England where he preys on a young woman. Dracula is arguably the most popular movie monster ever. There has since been many interpretations of the classic movie monster, but this ancient vampire's portrayal lives on today!
Dracula might have weaknesses, but he's considerably more powerful than a werewolf.
Dracula might be popular, but so is the Wolf Man. Like Dracula, the Wolf Man has been redone many times. Wolf Man has also inspired many other famous movie werewolves. Classic horror film star Lon Chaney, Jr. made this 1941 role famous.
In the 1941 film, Larry Talbot returns home to Wales and encounters a folklore creature that he kills—but not before he's bitten. In disbelief to what's happening to him, Larry transforms into a werewolf at the full moon and terrorizes his town.
A silver bullet might be able to kill the Wolf Man, but he doesn't have the weaknesses of garlic, crosses and sunlight like Dracula.
