On her show, The Vampira Show, Nurmi would introduce different horror films, feign speaking with spirits, and play with her pet spider, Rolo. The show aired from 1954 to 1955 exclusively in Los Angeles, but Vampira’s instantaneous success outlived the life of the show with her being featured in films past the cancellation of the show. The Vampira Show is now regarded as a cult classic and created fan clubs worldwide.

Igor
Dimensioned collection of illustrations of Igor in a range of postures from standing upright to hunched and walking

Igor is a generic hunchbacked henchman trope character that appears in a variety of films as a servant to the main antagonist. The very first appearance of an Igor character was in the 1927 film Metropolis, though the character is never named or credited. The next, and most notable, appearance of Igor was in the 1931 film Frankenstein. However, the character’s name was actually Fritz and in Mary Shelley’s original novel Frankenstein did not have an assistant. Despite the inconsistencies in the actual names of the henchmen or their roles, the name Igor, or stylized as Ygor, appears to be the default nickname for all horror assistants.

Igor, portrayed by Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein (1974), is 5 foot 7 inches (1.70 m) tall.

The Mummy
Collection of illustrations of the Mummy in various horror postures with overall height measurements

The use of the character of a Mummy, an undead creature under wraps and bandages, originates from nineteenth century Britain when they were colonizing Egypt. Originally, the Mummy was a female portrayed love interest. It was not until 1932, when the romantic Mummy archetype was replaced with the monster Mummy by Boris Karloff’s movie The Mummy. Now joining the ranks of Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy has been seen as an antagonist in works of horror despite a slight revival of the romantic archetype towards the end of the twentieth century.

The Mummy, portrayed by Boris Karloff in The Mummy (1932), is 5 foot 11 inches (1.8 m) tall.

Dracula
Drawings with labeled height of Dracula in poses ranging from the front, side, and with an open cape

Dracula, a vampire spawned from the imagination of Bram Stoker and the namesake of his 1897 novel, is the most iconic vampire of all time. The story of Dracula and some of his key characteristics became the basis for a whole genre of literature and films to come. Dracula is a vampire that lives Transylvania, but moves to England to partake in his favorite activity of blood sucking and spreading the undead curse. Once in England, however, he is hunted by a group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Dracula is the basis for Nosferatu, an illegal adaptation of the story due to violations of copyright laws that the studio tried to avoid by slightly altering the story.

Dracula is popularly depicted at 6 foot 4 inches (1.93 m) tall, but was originally portrayed by Bela Lugosi in Dracula (1931) at 6 foot 1 inch (1.85 m) tall.
