Dracula travels to London after being inspired by a photograph of Harker's betrothed, Mina Murray. Once Dracula lands in England, his reign of seduction and terror begins.

Maybe its Coppola's touch to this film. Or maybe its Gary Oldham. This Dracula movie adds another layer of malevolence to the standard Vampire tale and more than embellishes the added scares and thrills. In Coppola's capable re-telling of Dracula I am reminded that Monsters can be elevated to a super-human status. There is a great humanity underlying all Monsters...something relatable and even when brings out my empathy for them. I understand this version of Dracula...and even feel for him and his own brand of suffering. Keanu's performance is far too muted to Oldham's Dracula. There is a connection here to the Succubi. My signifcant other is related to one of them...the Israeli born model/actress/activist. Its an added bonus...just watching her role in this film.

Still a wonderful ode to classic film style of the Horror genre. Keanu's acting is noticeable, but Gary Oldman's performance is great. This version has always made me feel more frightened than previous versions of the classic story.

A movie that feels like it was made entirely so the creators could play with old special effects and do some truly remarkable things with them. Is it the greatest movie ever? No, but it wasn't trying to be.

This movie does not hold up. It's beautiful to look at and the cast is great (not counting Keanu Reeves). Surprisingly, it follows the book fairly closely...although it gives more backstory and a ridiculous romance to the count and Mina. This movie is overblown and too '90s in all the wrong ways. I found it - in particular a couple of scenes - a little too "sexy".

Filmed with early movie technology and theatrical styles. Watch if you are a BIG vampire fan in general.

I think of this movie as a timeless love story not so much a horror movie. It's also a reminder that redemption is possible.
I think Gary Oldman is an underrated actor. I really enjoyed his performance in this movie. My favorite Dracula.

an overly restrained performance by ms. horowitz. too bad ms. frost never worked again. the commentary is ho-hum. makes you wonder what goes on during the hot napa nights.

Great performance of Gary Oldman. The title language of the Special Features DVD is in Japanese.

Love this movie, that's why I'm getting it again. Gary Oldman is superb, special effects great, additional story line is so good. You should still get the original "nosferatu" and Bela Logosi's Dracula

Count (Lord) Dracula ascends upon England to wreak havoc on the fiancee of a man who Dracula wants as his own.

In this evil love story Reeves is the unsuspecting muse of Gary Oldman, while Hopkins & Ryder try to save him from the dark underworld.

Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves, Anthony Hopkins and Winona Ryder do an excellent job all around.

Not recommended for anyone under 21, due to the graphic sexual scenes and pure evilness portrayed.
