Jason Scott Lee,
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 »
Van Helsing's office building is in London, but the Security Guards on duty are armed. Security guards in England do not, and cannot, carry guns. Handguns are illegal in the UK and private citizens, even security guards, cannot even possess handguns, much less can they carry them about. Handguns can only be carried by the armed forces and by specially trained police officers (and even then it is rare to see even an armed police officer). See more »
You don't build this kind of security without a gold mine to hide.

This Movie rocked my socks! This movie was original, entertaining, attention holding and perfect in every other way. Plus not to mention great actors....Dracula was so attractive, alluring, and seductive that I found myself rooting for him. This movie was amazing, although its sequels were horrible and very disappointing. (havely because Gerald Butler did not portray Dracula in the sequels) so strap on your crucifix's cause this movie was AMAZING and will take you for a ride! This movie was excellent in many ways. First off, the plot.....was awesome. It was a new take on Dracula without losing the old feel for it and disregarding the legend. On the contrary, it added a feel of a modern Dracula, like he had adapted into out time. Then the acting was superb (again, Gerald Butler!!!! I love him) and also the director. (Wes Craven is a genius). So 10 stars to this baby.
