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 »

A Theatrical Mystery and Verbal Movie: Stage on the Screen
24 October 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The skeptical Sherlock Holmes (Matt Frewer) and Dr. Watson (Kenneth Welsh) investigate some deaths in the monastery of Whitechapel attributed to a vampire. Sherlock Holmes refuses to believe in any type of action from the supernatural or any coincidence. As usual, there is a very logical conclusion of the story. This is the type of very verbalized movie, basically with no action. The viewer feels like being in a theater, with a stage on the screen. Therefore, the running time could be shorter. The viewer may also become a tired, especially if he is not fluent in English and needs to read the subtitles. But it is a good plot and the mystery and its resolution keep the attention along the whole story. My vote is six.
