I like vampire movies but I also like my monsters to be monstrous. The opera-cloaked Christopher Lee and the love-sick Gary Oldman and the sugar sweet romance of Twilight leave me cold. For me it has to be Nosferatu, by far the creepiest incarnation on screen of the Dracula myth, depicted originally by the equally creepy Max Schreck and more recently by Klaus Klinski.
