I've re-watched the original Dracula by Todd Browning, starring Bela Lugosi. Lugosi is great, but unfortunately the movie itself didn't age well. The first 15 minutes are still worth watching for the incredible atmosphere Browning created out of virtually nothing. Really classy. But after that the movie collapsed. Weak story, no suspense, no real climax.

The Christopher Lee Dracula series by Hammer is much better. Those movies still work. Excellent British actors (especially the legendary Peter Cushing), elaborate costumes and lighting and some violence. A bit slow compared to today's standards, but definitely still worth watching.
