Storyline

Based upon Bram Stoker's short stories, Dracula's Guest follows the story of two young lovers, Bram and Elizabeth, who are forced by her father, the Admiral Murray, to take a one year probation from their relationship in order to determine whether their love is true. Meanwhile, the Count Dracula is in London searching for a new home and coincidentally, or not, comes across young Elizabeth at the train station after she's run away from home and her father's overbearing ways. Dracula, though, proceeds to kidnap her and take Elizabeth to his castle where he waits for her father's arrival to settle an ancient dispute. Meanwhile, Bram' friend Malcolm sets out to inform Bram of Elizabeth' kidnapping but he soon falls to Dracula's evil ways. And, upon finding his best friend dead Bram sets out across Europe to rescue his true love. Written by BEI

No coffin! No blood! No acting!
3 November 2009 | by (South Carolina) – See all my reviews

If my students would have presented this film to me in a film class, I would have given it a B minus. Then, again, I'd be a pushover as a professor. Some of the shooting was beautiful and some of the scenes were interesting.

However, considering the budget of this film, the flaws were really outstanding. It seemed like somebody had set-out to sabotage this production. Why did Dracula appear in the daylight twice with no explanation? He should have at least had on sunglasses or closed the shades.

Mortimer, Bram Stoker's friend, is hung by Dracula in the daylight. By that time the Count had already gone back to Romania! It's illogical even by the standards of vampire standards.

Bram and the Admiral (traveling separately) go from England to Romania in 3 days. Impossible in 1890. The scene with the coachman being attacked by the wolf was creepy.

Both Bram and the Admiral separately locate the secret cavern below the castle where Elizabeth was kept prisoner. I cringed when Elizabeth gave them both almost exactly the same speech. Elizabeth came across like a snotty and rich high school cheerleader with an attitude problem.

Dracula looked like a Slavic wrestler and Dracula's Castle looked like a bank after hours. I was looking for elevators. I did like the work of the actor who played Bram Stoker. His Irish accent stayed consistent throughout the movie. But it was never explained that Bram was a budding writer who would use his real encounters with Count Dracula for a novel in the future.

Still worth a look.
