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.

Did You Know?


Gary Oldman was quite drunk the night they filmed the scene where he had to lick blood from Keanu Reeves's straight razor. The scene was filmed far beyond midnight, which added to the spirit of the scene and helped put the cast "in the proper mood". See more »


In the prologue when Dracula returns to find Elisabeta's dead body she is seen as completely dry with her hair still permed and still wearing her crown, though the surrounding floor around her seems to be wet. The only real evidence of her traumatic jump into the river to her death is the trickle of blood from her mouth and wrist. See more »

Just When Did Francis Ford Coppola Become Incapable of Making a Good Movie?
6 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Francis Ford Coppola's atrocious version of the Bram Stoker classic is updated for the MTV generation.

Coppola eschews everything that made the novel scary -- atmosphere, creepiness, subtlety, things fluttering in the shadows -- and replaces it with gore, busy camera-work, shock editing and a relentlessly frantic pace. Oh, and did I also mention Keanu Reeves? Coppola's film claimed to be faithful to the original novel, and it is in terms of plot, but in every other regard one wonders if Coppola ever read it.

Cheesy and creaky as the old Universal classic is, I'd take that any day over this abomination.

Grade: F
