Storyline

This version of Dracula is closely based on Bram Stoker's classic novel of the same name. A young lawyer (Jonathan Harker) is assigned to a gloomy village in the mists of eastern Europe. He is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire Dracula, who travels to London, inspired by a photograph of Harker's betrothed, Mina Murray. In Britain, Dracula begins a reign of seduction and terror, draining the life from Mina's closest friend, Lucy Westenra. Lucy's friends gather together to try to drive Dracula away.

Trivia

In the scene preceding Dracula's entrance to Mina's room in the form of green mist, the gang are breaking up boxes of soil in order to throw holy water on them and exercise the demonic dirt. Van Helsing is splashing the water, holding a crucifix and speaking in Latin. In the process of his Latin exorcism lines he utters the word Wallachia. Wallachia is the city in which Vlad Tepes (better known as Vlad the Impaler or Dracula) was believed to have been killed. This was said to have happened in either December 1496 or January 1497 depending on the source and there are many theories as to how he actually died. See more »

Goofs

In the long shot at the beginning of the scene where Prince Vlad bumps into Mina outside the perfume shop, just before he first runs into her, you can see the small perfume bottle he will later "catch" visible in his right hand. See more »

Quite impossibly bad
6 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I must be missing something here, as this is easily one of the most shockingly terrible, tear-my-eyes-out-so-I-don't-have-to-see-it, train wreck mess of an excuse for a film that I have ever had the severe misfortune to bear witness to. I am sitting here in my living room literally unable to come to terms with how execrable this 'film'was.

How anyone can think this is good is quite beyond me. A few points: -The look of the film is not 'grandiose' or 'lush', it is crap. The effects are crap, the sets are crap. It's just a royal glut of crapness from start to finish.

-Every cast member excerpt Gary Oldman turns in a career-worst performance par excellence.

-Calling it 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' is an exercise bordering on the farcical. This film should be called 'Francis Ford Coppola's unashamed molestation of Dracula, aided and abetted by the most staggeringly inept fake English accents ever committed to celluloid'.

Keanu Reeves' English accent is (deep breath) worse, yes WORSE than Dick Van Dyke's horrific cockney aberration from Mary Poppins. This in itself is quite an achievement and almost makes the film worth watching. Actually, no it doesn't.

To sum up, by all that you hold dear do not watch this film. Spend two hours removing your skin with a power-sander then have a salt bath. It will be a less painful experience. I bid you good day.
