I’m glad you specified the 1971 version. Grew up with Barnabas, he was great, and had his own game

That’s Mr Vampire to you. Lam Ching Ying in this is certainly my favourite vampire hunter anyway.

COUNT Duckula!

Who can forget Nosferatu from Escape 2000? I never quite worked out what the vampire rules in that movie were, though.

nosferatu

Oh, another vote for Count Duckula! Both the standalone and Danger Mouse versions.

I came here for Barnabas Collins, read your first line, and departed satisfied. You have my thanks.

Eli (“Ellie”) from the novel Let the Right One In, by Swedish writer John Ajvide Lindqvist. Disturbing origin and situations, tender yet brutal story.

Max Schreck (played by Willem Dafoe) in the film Shadow of the Vampire. He is the method actor hired to play the vampire in the 1922 silent film Nosferatu, and the film is about its filming. (John Malkovich played its director, F.W. Murnau.) Thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Louis de Pointe du Lac from the novel Interview With The Vampire, by Anne Rice. This book started the whole “relatable vampires”(?) trend, and did it quite well.

But on a lighter note: Yes! to Count Floyd (SCTV). And Nandor (What We Do In The Shadows TV series). And, why not, George Hamilton’s Count in Love at First Bite.
