    Was that in reference to the real elephant man being used as a circus attraction?

    Yea I know about the wolfman condition and they are probably quite related (although those people don't turn like that on a full moon but... w/e).
    Still! Dracula was cool from the beginning cuz even with his most generic first look he looks cool enough :D

    I'm more into the haunting-souls kind of horror stories anyway so none of those are really appealing, however I'm staying with Picture of Dorian Gray since I liked the book a lot back when I read it - same for Phantom of the Opera. Most of these stories suffer from being very well known so we already know what the book is about before even starting it haha.

    Seeing how you guys described the influence of the Nosferatu movie really made me interested in watching it in future.

    I choose the witch because while the other peoples power is limited, her power is endless as long as no one throws a house on her or a pail of water.

    @Naze what are powers of Phantom of Opera anyway? Dorian Gray, at least this one black and white is just immortal, and immune to diseases, and perhaps has some healing factor. He seems to have ordinary strength, speed and such. I do not know if he can die by ordinary means, cutting head, ripping hearth, or locking him without food for example. But once you stab picture, he is done. About Phantom of Opera, I cannot remember anything.

    @TheLordOfChaos201 thanks for voting and posting! Yeah she is pretty much powerful character although I am not sure that her powers are limitless. What I remember from movie is that she has plenty of powers such as flying with broom, teleporting with red smoke effect, she could create fireballs with hands, create fog with broom, looking into crystal ball to see enemies, controlling animals, she has loyal servants/slaves... Plenty of powers but got killed by water, perhaps it was holy water.

    From what I remember the Phantom of the Opera is just a skilled illusionist with a sexy voice and infinite money to build what he wants inside that opera hall. He's also deeply ugly.

    So no powers, he's just a very ugly 1910's version of batman / iron man

    I chose Frankenstein, because I love the idea of playing with dead bodies. During my final year in the morgue I was fascinated by the body examinations and different autopsies, add here my fascination with death in general. Forensic science is also great, combine the two and you get talking corpses.

    I find psychiatric forensics the most interesting, so my next choice would probably be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I love the trilogy of Glass by
    M. Night Shyamalan so it's nice to see where the inspiration came from.

    Interesting choice of a discussion @MasterHaosis ^_^

    But but -- What if, say, I were to raise them from the dead AFTER I kill them? Would that technically be murder??

    Zombie is not a race. It's a state of being.

    HAHAHAHAAH! @deepstrasz @knight26 You guys are epic. That was awesome :cgrin:
    I am sorry that I could not be here for some time, because I got engaged, and my fiance moved to live with me and I was (and still am) quite busy.

    @natass9 Thanks for comment and voting.

    From what I see here Dracula leads with 8 votes. Wolfman has 6, then Frankenstein with 4 votes. Nosferatu got 3 votes so far. All three Mummy, Witch and Dorian gray have 2 votes. And finally, just one vote went to Invisible Man (my vote). Gillman and Edward Burke have no votes yet.
