Answer: Vincent Price

Vincent Price ("The Raven", "House of Wax") played Dr. Robert Morgan in "The Last Man on Earth", based on the novel "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson.

However, after Secker ran away, Lucy woke up, and drove a stake into her father's chest, killing Samuel Paxton.

Peter Sallis was the only performer to appear in every episode and special as Norman Clegg, or Clegg's father, in "Last of the Summer Wine". He also did the voice of Wallace in the "Wallace and Gromit" films.

Answer: Roman Polanski

Count Von Krolock, a vampire, kidnapped Sarah (Sharon Tate) after Prof. Abronsius and his assistant Alfred (Roman Polanski) came to the village to find out who the vampire was and kill it.

Rajmund Roman Thierry Polanski (Born 18 Aug 1933) was a French-Polish film director, producer, writer, and actor, married a few times, including to his co-star Sharon Tate, his second wife, in 1968. She was murdered by the Manson family in 1969. He's directed "Chinatown", "Rosemary's Baby", "The Pianist", and "What?"
4 In which of these movies was Dracula (Lon Chaney Jr) stranded after his coffin was burned?
Answer: Son of Dracula

Kay had married someone who called himself Count Alucard (Lon Chaney Jr). Frank Stanley (Robert Paige) set fire to Dracula's coffin after someone noticed that "Alucard" was "Dracula" spelled backwards. When the sun rose, Dracula had no coffin to return to, so the sun turned him into a skeleton. There may have been other movies in which Dracula's coffin was burned, but this was the only one in which Lon Chaney Jr played as Dracula.
5 What was the name of the vampire depicted in F. W. Murnau's 1922 film "Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror"?
Answer: Count Orlok

Count Orlok was portrayed by Max Schreck in this prototypical vampire film from the early 1920s. An important movie in the silent film era, much of this movie made use of elements of German Expressionism (e.g. shadowplay) and revised the vampire lore outlined in Bram Stoker's classic 1897 novel, "Dracula". Notably, the word 'vampire' was never used in the film because the Stokers would not relinquish the rights to the original story. The movie followed much of the novel's original plot including a man's arrival at the vampire's castle and the vampire's visit to London.

This would also happen to be Max Schreck's most famous role which is interesting because the name 'Schreck' translates to 'terror' in German.
6 By almost any reckoning, the most influential vampire movie of all time was Universal Studios' "Dracula", from 1931. From innumerable remakes, to the Count character on "Sesame Street", this film cast the mold for how a vampire was supposed to look, sound, and act. Who played the title role in this groundbreaking work?
Answer: Bela Lugosi

Based on the 1920's stageplay, this short (ca. 75 minutes) feature tells the story of a venerable Transylvanian vampire who takes control of a British attorney and secures passage to London, only to be thwarted by a continental physician and scholar named Van Helsing. Though "Dracula" has been rightly praised for striking what have proven to be resonant tones with its audience, more cynical eyes have pointed out rather egregious flaws in the film, including very obviously misplaced props and the incongruous infestation of Castle Dracula by armadillos. Though a gifted director, "Dracula" helmsman Tod Browning struggled with alcoholism throughout his career, and attention to detail would never be his strong suit. Likewise, Lugosi would himself struggle with substance abuse, nursing a morphine addiction from the early 1940s until shortly before his death in 1956. He would be buried, appropriately enough, in full "Dracula" suit and cloak.
7 In 1931, the battle between Dracula and Van Helsing was brought to the big screen in Universal's "Dracula". Bela Lugosi was Count Dracula, but who played Dr. Van Helsing?
Answer: Edward Van Sloan

Count Dracula had left his Carpathian Mountain stronghold for the full-bloodied preying grounds of Victorian England. His new home was the desecrated Carfax Abbey, with its grounds that adjoined Seward's Asylum. Bela Lugosi was Dracula, and Herbert Bunston played Dracula's neighbor, Dr. Jack Seward. Dwight Frye was Renfield, Dracula's lunatic slave, who was an inmate of Seward's. David Manners played Jonathan Harker, and Helen Chandler played Mina, the victim of the evil Count's nocturnal visitations. Edward Van Sloan was Dr. Abraham Van Helsing, a man wise in both medicine and vampire lore. "Dracula" was based on Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, and was directed by Tod Browning. Character actor Edward Van Sloan (1881-1964) had a successful film career playing mainly doctors and professors. Perhaps fans of the old Universal monster films will remember Van Sloan as Dr. Waldman in "Frankenstein" (1931), and as Dr. Muller in "The Mummy" (1932). He also appeared as Prof. Von Helsing in "Dracula's Daughter" (1936).
8 Rock star, 'Come out, come out... Wherever you are!'
Answer: Queen of the Damned

Released in 2002 and starring Stuart Townsend and the late singer Aaliyah, 'Queen of the Damned' follows on from 'Interview With the Vampire'. In it, Lestat becomes a rock star and wakes up the 'mother of all vampires.' The quote is from the 'Queen' herself, Akasha.
9 Born in 1922 in London, England, Christopher Lee will always be remembered as the actor who 'revamped' the myth of Dracula. Very tall and handsome, he added to the character a touch of seduction greatly appreciated by the Count's fans. In which of these movies did he make his debut as the famous vampire?
Answer: 'Dracula' or 'The Horror Of Dracula'

'Dracula' (1958) was directed by Terence Fisher and also starred the fabulous Peter Cushing as Dracula's nemesis: Van Helsing. In the following years, Hammer Film would produce 6 sequels to the first movie including: 'Dracula: Prince Of Darkness' in 1965, 'Dracula Has Risen From His Grave' in 1968 and 'The Scars Of Dracula' in 1970.
10 What actor is the best-known for portraying Dracula?
Answer: Bela Lugosi

Also probably the scariest Dracula!

11 Who played a character who collected blood for a monster in "The Vampire Bat"?
Answer: Lionel Atwill

When a man was found without blood and with two puncture marks on his neck, the villagers thought there might be a vampire, or maybe a vampire bat. Karl Breetschneider (Melvyn Douglas) insisted that the nearest vampire bat was in South America. However, Herman Gleib (Dwight Frye) had pet bats, so he was suspected of the murder. When another victim was found, Herman was chased into a cave, where he fell to his death. However, it was really Dr. Otto Von Niemann (Lionel Atwill, "Son of Frankenstein", "House of Dracula") who collected blood for the thing he kept alive in his lab.
12 Who played Dracula in "Love At First Bite"?
Answer: George Hamilton

Dracula (George Hamilton) was evicted from his castle in Romania. His coffin was sent to a funeral in Harlem. Dracula woke up and opened the coffin lid, surprising the black congregation. He later found Cindy Sondheim (Susan Saint James) who looked like his past girlfriend, Mina Harker. He turned her into a vampire, and they became bats and flew away to live happily ever after together.

George Hamilton played Hank Williams in "Your Cheatin' Heart" (1964), a motorcycle daredevil in "Evel Knievel" (1971), and Zorro in "Zorro the Gay Blade" (1981).
13 What performer from "...And Justice For All" played a vampire in "Saturday the 14th"?
Answer: Jeffrey Tambor

Waldemar, a vampire (Jeffrey Tambor) and his wife, Yolanda, tried to get a magic book from a house inherited by John (Richard Benjamin) and Mary (Paula Prentiss), but Van Helsing (Severn Darden) also wanted the book. One of the kids opened the magic book and various monsters popped up in the house at various times throughout the rest of the movie.

Jeffrey Tambor played lawyer Jay Porter in the movie "...And Justice For All" and has appeared in "Mr. Mom", "Life Stinks", "Muppets From Space", and many TV shows, including "The Ropers", "Three's Company", "The Larry Sanders Show", "Mr. Sunshine", "Arrested Development", and "Transparent".
14 In which of these movies did Dracula need virgin blood?
Answer: Andy Warhol's Dracula

In the comical but sometimes violent movie "Andy Warhol's Dracula", Dracula had to leave his home because he needed virgin blood, and there were no more virgins in that area. Dracula claimed to be a wealthy aristocrat when he temporarily moved in with a landowner who needed money. When the landowner was away, Dracula bit one of the landowner's grown daughters, but her blood made him sick, because she wasn't a virgin. Later, he bit another daughter, but she also wasn't a virgin, and he got sick again.
15 Tod Browning's 1931 version of "Dracula" featured which famous actor in the titular role?
Answer: Bela Lugosi

The 1931 version of "Dracula", directed by Tod Browning, would be the first version of the film to feature a plot similar to Stoker's original novel. The movie, however, was based around the stageplay of the novel as opposed to the novel itself. Lugosi starred as Dracula, the suave, exotic vampire from Transylvania, who headed to London to feed. Coincidentally, Chaney was originally supposed to fill the role before his death in the late 1920s.

Lugosi's role in this film and others in the genre would typecast him for many years. "Dracula" became a major hit for Universal sparking a series of horrifying pre-WWII films for American audiences including "Frankenstein" (1931), "The Mummy" (1932), and "Dracula's Daughter" (1936).

Funnily enough, a Spanish version of the film, "Drácula", was released in the same year and was filmed on the same set with a Central American cast. Somehow, it was forty minutes longer despite very similar scripts.
16 Sexuality and passion have always been prominent in the vampire mythos, and this 1983 film starring Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon is no exception. Based on a novel by Whitley Streiber, what is the name of this movie that continues to raise eyebrows?
Answer: The Hunger

Musician David Bowie plays Deneuve's vampiric lover who, after a long period of seemingly everlasting youth, suddenly begins aging rapidly and seeks the help of scientist Sarandon, who can only watch in vain as Bowie ages 40 years in her waiting room. Sarandon investigates and meets Deneuve, who has entombed Bowie with her other past lovers. The women's resulting liaison, as well as the other sumptuous visuals in the film and the inventive soundtrack (featuring both the goth band Bauhaus' "Bela Lugosi's Dead" and the "Flower Duet" from Léo Delibes opera "Lakmé"), have earned this film a steady following, despite critical panning on its release.
17 Julian Sands, library, slow-moving.
Answer: Tale of a Vampire

Released in 1992, it's based on the poem 'Annabel Lee' by Edgar Allan Poe and is more of a character study than your usual vampire movie. Sand's vampiric character spends much of the film in a library where he finds himself falling in love with one of the librarians.
18 In most of the movies about Count Dracula, the character of R.M. Renfield occupies an important place because of his prophetic behavior announcing the coming of his Master, Dracula. Which of this actor never played Renfield?
Answer: Peter Fonda

Tom Waits in 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' in 1992, Rubio in 'Dracula' in 1931 and MacNicol in 'Dracula: Dead And Loving It' in 1995.
19 In this 1987 movie, two brothers move to California, where they meet a group of young vampires. Starring Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric?
Answer: The Lost Boys

Possibly the best vampire movie of all time.
Question Reference: Quiz: Vampire Movies.
20 Who played the title role in "Vampire in Brooklyn"?
Answer: Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy played the vampire who was searching New York City for the female cop destined to be his bride.

Eddie Murphy began on "Saturday Night Live" and went on to star in many movies, including "48 Hours", "Beverly Hills Cop", "Trading Places", "Coming to America" "Dr. Doolittle", and "The Nutty Professor".
21 Who played Prince Mamuwalde in "Blacula" (1972)?
Answer: William Marshall

Prince Mamuwalde (William Marshall) visited Dracula (Charles Macaulay) to discuss slowing down the slave trade. However, Dracula made money from slaves, so he took Mamuwalde's wife to be his vampire bride and turned the prince into a vampire, which Dracula called "Blacula". In 1972 Blacula woke up in a coffin in Los Angeles and found a woman who looked like his long dead wife (Vonetta McGee). Of course, while romancing her he also drank blood and turned people into the undead while the police investigated.

William Marshall played the King of Cartoons on "Pee Wee's Playhouse" and Dr. Richard Daystrom, who invented the computer who took over the Enterprise in "Star Trek: The Original Series". He also appeared in many other TV shows, plays, and movies.
22 What performer from "Enter the Dragon" met a vampire from another planet in "Queen of Blood"?
Answer: John Saxon

"Queen of Blood" (1966) involved an astronaut (John Saxon) and his crew sent to pick up people who were stranded on Mars. When they arrived, the only survivor was a woman which they later found out was a vampire. On the way back to Earth, she began killing men on the ship. However, a woman on the crew fought back and scratched the vampire woman, who bled to death.

John Saxon (born Carmine Orrico, Aug 5, 1935) has appeared on television and movies over the years, including "Enter the Dragon" (as Roper, one of the contestants in the fighting competition), "Battle Beyond the Stars", "A Nightmare on Elm Street", and "My Mom's a Werewolf".
23 In which of these movies did Dracula kill someone and then seduce the man's granddaughter-in-law?
Answer: House of Frankenstein

In "House of Frankenstein" Dracula (John Carradine) killed Burgomeister Hussman (Sig Ruman) because Dr. Niemann (Boris Karloff) wanted revenge for being put in prison. Dr. Niemann had resurrected Dracula by pulling the stake out of his skeleton. Then Dracula seduced Hussman's granddaughter-in-law Rita (Anne Gwynne) by giving her his ring. After Dracula died in a wild chase when the sun came out, the ring fell off her finger, symbolizing that Dracula had lost his control of her.
24 Remade by Hammer Horror in 1958, "Dracula" starred Christopher Lee in the title role. What was the alternate title for this shot-in-color film, which originally received an X-rating in the UK?
Answer: Horror of Dracula

In order to separate this film from the 1931 version by Universal (which, at this point in time, was followed by a number of sequels and had fallen out of its horror roots in favour of comedy), Hammer Horror retitled the film "Horror of Dracula" in the U.S. upon its release in 1958. Starring Christopher Lee as Dracula as well as Peter Cushing as Doctor Van Helsing, the movie was similar to the original Universal film in only a few respects and it separated itself a great deal from the novel even going so far as to vampirize some of the main characters. Once again, Dracula terrorized visitors to his castle and the citizens of London.

Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee would reappear intermittently in future installments of the Hammer Horror "Dracula" franchise which ended in 1974 with the kung-fu/vampire hybrid "The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires". Thankfully.
25 When making "Dracula" in 1931, Universal Studios experimented with an alternative to foreign language dubbing: when the English-speaking cast went home for the night, a Spanish-speaking cast would take over, filming their own movie on the very same sets. The two films are similar, but the Spanish version (directed by George Melford) differs from the English in many ways. Which of these is NOT a substantial difference between the two versions?
Answer: In the Spanish version, star Carlos Villarias is outfitted with a fine set of fangs, unlike his English-version counterpart who goes au naturelle.

Each of these differences arre largely a product of Melford's creativity, as the script itself is a direct paraphrase from the English version: the Count manipulates the weak-minded Renfield (played by a manic Pablo Rubio) into conveying him to London, where he sinks his teeth into the British upper class - especially Lupita Tovar's fetchingly voluptuous Eva. Alas, those teeth were indeed unaugmented.

In retrospect, the English-language "Dracula" is, in many ways, a filmed version of the stageplay, supplemented with early scenes of Castle Dracula and the London Opera (the latter borrowed from the 1925 "Phantom of the Opera"). The Spanish version plays out much more cinematically, using a great deal more of the filmmakers' vocabulary, including camera movement, establishing shots, and special effects. It does suffer, however, from the lack of strong leading personalities like Bela Lugosi and Edward Van Sloan in the lead roles. Though Villarias does his best as the Count, Eduardo Arozamena is much more bluster than stoic confidence in his portrayal of Van Helsing. Still and all, the Spanish version is a great exemplar of what could have been.
