In the millenium version of this classic Gothic horror we find Abraham Van Helsing (Plummer), who has tangled with Count Dracula (Butler) in the past, working as an English antiques dealer. Simon (Miller) is a vampire hunter in training under his apprenticeship. Van Helsing and Simon travel from London to New Orleans to rescue Van Helsing's daughter Mary (Waddell) from the family's life long nemesis - Dracula. Written by

Alternate versions and Deleted scenes from the DVD include: An extended version of the final confrontation between Dracula and Van Helsing. An alternate version of the scene where Dracula attacks Valerie at the site of the plane crash. In this version he can be seen rising from the swamp behind her. He also says the line which could only be heard in the previews, "There are things much worse than death". A longer and much more dramatic version of the scene where Dracula talks to the Jesus on the neon cross. Dracula explains how he feels that he was the one who was betrayed. A longer version of the scene where Van Helsing and his accomplices trap Dracula in London. This was originally the opening scene to the film. A scene where vampire Val approaches Simon before leading him into the crowded streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras. During the Judas fantasy sequence, Mary walks up to Dracula while he's hanging from a tree. The rope around his neck breaks and he attacks Mary. After finding her father, Mary walks out into the hallway where she meets vampire Lucy for the first time. This was replaced by the scene where the hallway becomes longer and Mary is approached by all three vampire brides instead of just Lucy. See more »
In the long hallway scene at Mary's house, the female vampires are crawling on the hallway walls. Mary has her back against the wall, however, its obvious that the scene is filmed with Mary lying down and the camera rotated for the effect. As she turns her head her hair falls backwards, towards the wall. See more »

Another in a long line of vampire movies, but watchable
An interesting take on Dracula--You might get a kick out of the end when you find out Dracula's true origin.
It struck me as two movies in one. There was a very passionate vampire story going on, covered up by a high-tech monster movie (think Bram Stoker's Dracula coated with a layer of Underworld or League of Extraordinary Gentlemen).
Considering the double tone of this film, I'm not surprised to see Christopher Plummer co-starring along some very fresh-faced young actors. Any fellow Canadians will notice a few Canucks besides Plummer in this one.
Because of the inconsistent flow of the movie, some silliness, and the disappointing death of one of the main characters, I gave this film a 6/10.
