Christopher Lee, Dracula, Dooku and Adorer of Death Metal, Dies at 93
4. He’s a Monster’s Monster
Christopher Lee is no stranger to horror, being one of very few actors to play so many different lead monster roles. Aside from playing Dracula more times than I can count (because I am feeling lazy) from 1958 an on, Lee has taken on the title character in “The Mummy” (1959), the Creature in “Curse of Frankenstein” (1957), Grigori Rasputin in “Rasputin: The Mad Monk (1966), Dr. Fu Manchu in “The Vengance of Fu Manchu” (1967), Lucifer in “Poor Devil” (1973), and Lord Summerisle in “The Wicker Man” (1973) just to name a few… literally. With his ‘Count’less (har har) roles in horror, Lee is easily a Monster’s Monster.
