Also, I had Nosferatu on my list. I had no idea his name was Orlok because that name does not appear in the copy of the film I had watched on PBS years ago. ( His name was translated from German as just "The Count" on the title cards back then. ) So I have no idea if Nosferatu was counted on the LoC as Orlok or Max Schreck or both or neither. 

To the people who included just the words "Nosferatu", I knew what you meant.  People who said Max Shreck specifically mentioned Shadow of the Vampire.  I try to be careful when I make those distinctions.  Though consistency helps..
Yeah, if it's Shadow then he's a Vampire, if it's not he's just a German character actor.

Admittedly he still looks kinda vampiric, just not Orlockesque vampiric.

This was a more interesting list than I anticipated. Thank you, Johnny, for your time and interesting writeups.
My original list was only 5 long, but my wife, who is far more into vampires than I, would not stand for it. There were several on the countdown that I should have thought of, though.
(BTW, I voted for Count Cocofang, was that lumped in with Chocula?)

Viago (What We Do in the Shadows)
Vladislav (What We Do in the Shadows)
Deacon (What We Do in the Shadows)
John Blaylock (The Hunger)
Eve (Only Lovers Left Alive)
Claudia (Interview with the Vampire)
Louis (Interview with the Vampire)
Lestat (Interview with the Vampire)
Armand (Interview with the Vampire)
Rae "Sunshine" Seddon (Sunshine)
Bill Compton (True Blood)
Eric Northman (True Blood)
Adam (Only Lovers Left Alive)
Max Schreck (Shadow of the Vampire)
Petyr (What We Do in the Shadows)
Count Cocofang (Invader Zim)
Sam Neill: CEO of the Vampires (Daybreakers)
Dracula 2000
Gary Oldman (B.S.'s Dracula)
The vampires what occupied that planet (Planet of the Vampires)
Nick Cage (Vampire's Kiss)
The World ("The World is a Vampire," by Smashing Pumpkins)
Nick (What We Do in the Shadows)
Jasper (Twilight Saga)
Alice Cullen (Twilight Saga)

No, but let me tell you, when you sent your original list with just actor names (which required me to do, ugh, research), I just assumed you were whimsically referring to Chocula.  Thankfully you clarified in your more fleshed out list.

I was super-tempted to lump "The World" in with Dio, though.

Interesting, I think maybe three people voted for Mr. Peppy the Bone vampire, but he was so low on peeps lists that he just couldn't pull through.

He was on my list just so I would have 25 vampires. Probably the same for the other two lists. I think Peppy would have needed to be at the back of at least six lists to reach 24 points.


To bad there was no sub list for worst vampire ever. My pick would be "Vampire" ( that's right, no name ) from the movie Embrace of the Vampire ( 1995 ), the movie everyone rented just to see Alyssa Milano in her first nude scene ( which was also her first lesbian kiss scene. )  The vampire? Played by Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet. A sort of whiny vampire who for some unexplained reason must turn Alyssa by the next full moon or he will stop being a vampire(?) An odd vampire film where the vampire scenes drag the movie to a halt, and you watch it for the non vampire scenes. It would have been a better movie if "Vampire" was killed off in the first three seconds.

But she has a nude scene and a lesbian kiss you say?
