EDITOR'S OPINIONI honestly like both performances a lot.
At their core, both actors do pretty much the same thing even if DaFoe's take strays from the original portrayal. I mostly see this as a difference on how Japanese culture views demons vs how American culture views them. so it was one of the changes from the movie that I understood.
So DaFoe's performance is more sinister and manipulative while Drummond has that sinister edge but has a more casual tone. One is more of a trickster while one is more of an Agent of Chaos.
For me, it is a tie.
