Count Vladislaus Dracula is the main antagonist of the 2004 film Van Helsing. He is another version of Count Dracula, and is played by Richard Roxburgh.


Dracula was the son of one of Anne Valerious' ancestors, and was killed by Gabriel Van Helsing, the Left Hand of God. However, his spirit made a deal with the Devil, who granted him immortality, but on the condition that he must drink human blood to retain eternal life. Now reborn as a vampire, Dracula terrorized Transylvania, along with his brides, Verona, Marishka and Aleera. In response to this, the Valerious family vowed that they would never enter heaven until Dracula was killed.
