The Evolution of the Movie Vampire

Happy Halloween everyone! For a spooky treat, I wanted to track the progression of how vampires have evolved in films from the terrifyingly ratlike Nosferatu to the near-superhero Dracula of this year's Dracula Untold. Vampires have often bounced between comedy and horror, and I tried to represent as many different iterations of this as possible. How did I do? Which movie vampires would you have included?

Where is Spike?

Spooky: 1992 is from Coppola's brillant Dracula.
That's Lucy.

Oh, this is beautiful - LOVE how you rendered every one of them especially Nosferatu and Lucy from Coppola's Dracula! Amazing work!

Since you asked: I would have included also Frank Langella's Dracula from the 1976 movie, Christopher Lee's Dracula, and Jerry and/or Regina Dandridge, from the 80's Fright Night movies.

Best,
J.
