Trivia

The film contains two references to the most famous vampire novel, Bram Stoker's "Dracula". First, Dr Chagas lives in lodgings at 4 Renfield Place, Whitechapel. In the novel, Renfield is the insect-eating inmate of Dr Seward's lunatic asylum. Second, Brother Marstoke tells Holmes that Brother John was murdered in an alley opposite 128 Demeter Street. The Demeter is the name of the ship in which Dracula sails from Transylvania to England. See more »

Sher-schlock Holmes
14 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That this 2002 Canadian TV movie is based on a made-up Holmes story rather than a canon one should be a warning in itself; this turns out to be a schlocky and entirely befuddled production that has little to do with the original stories. Purists will no doubt find themselves outraged by the antics of the producers, which reduce the story elements to their most basic level.

The rest of us are left amused by a film which comes across as a cheesy B-movie instead of a classy Holmes adaptation. The entire story is set in what looks like a medieval monastery, with the sweaty monks at the mercy of a vampire killer. Wait until you see the costume! It's all very silly and of course nothing like the real Holmes.

Matt Frewer starred as the Victorian sleuth in four of these movies and he portrays the detective as an upper class twit. Let's just say that his acting is entertaining for all the wrong reasons. I'm not sure why North Americans have to put on an affected RP accent every time they play a Brit; it's a bit like a Brit supposing that all Americans speak in Southern drawls, which couldn't be further from the truth. Anyway, THE CASE OF THE WHIECHAPEL VAMPIRE is a mess, but also still marginally better than the appalling BBC production of SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE SILK STOCKING with Rupert Everett.
