Trivia

American network CBS took advantage of the successful release of director Francis Ford Coppola's identically titled adaptation, Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), to rebroadcast the film on November 28, 1992 (two weeks after Coppola's film opened). Similarly, distributor MPI released the film on VHS in the United States on December 8 of that year (just over three weeks after Coppola's film opened). See more »

Goofs

When Dracula flips over Lucy's coffin, the supposedly dead actress inside can clearly be seen to quickly raise her arms to cover her chest and face, presumably to shield herself from the fall. See more »

Quotes

Alternate Versions

In 2002, the TV version was released on DVD by MPI, and they subsequently issued the theatrical version on blu-ray in 2014. See more »

Dracula
10 January 2019 | by henry8-3See all my reviews

Fairly enjoyable but workmanlike version of the classic tale. Davenport is fine as Van Helsing but it's Palance everyone wants to see. He does ooze evil and in the final scenes carries a gravitas of an ancient warrior that few have brought to the screen - usually just sultry, sexy and dark. Unfortunately the role calls for most of his time to be spent staring / snarling or marching purposefully with cape a flapping, which is a shame.
