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

The book titled "Vampyri" that Van Helsing reads is actually a 15th century Middle High German history of the real Vlad III. called "Die geschicht dracole waide" (The History of Voivode Dracula). It consists almost entirely of descriptions of gruesome acts allegedly perpetrated by Vlad similar to the things mentioned in the voice-over narration in the movie. See more »

Goofs

After Jonathan's hair turns gray, throughout the rest of the film, it goes back to being dark again, with very little gray, and switches back to gray. However, this is an effect of Jonathan having been subjected to predation by vampires under Dracula's aura, so it's not a surprise if his hair color changes at the same rate of Dracula's shape and power.

A Treat For The Eyes And Ears
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As is the case with many of these latter-day horror movies, this is visually stunning. This one is particularly so, with beautiful colors, wild special effects, lavish sets and a handful of pretty women, led by Winona Ryder.

It isn't all beauty; there are some horrific, bloody moments in here. I've seen the film three times and the first two times was terrifying to me in parts. The last viewing wasn't as scary, but maybe I was distracted by seeing this on DVD for the first time, which enhanced the visuals and added some nice 5.1surround sound.

At two hours and 10 minutes, it's a bit long but there are very few lulls, if any. Gary Oldham gives his normal intense performance as Dracula and it never hurts to have Anthony Hopkins in the film.

The only negative I found was Keannu Reeves, who sounds a bit wooden in his lines. Is it my imagination, or is he a terrible actor? Maybe it's just his voice. Nonetheless, Cary Elwes, Richard Grant, Sadie Frost and Bill Campbell all give good support to this film which is a real feast for the senses.
