When a ship is wrecked off Whitby, the only survivor, Count Dracula, is discovered lying on the beach by the sickly young Mina, who is visiting her dear friend Lucy Seward. Lucy, her fiancé Johnathan Harker (a solicitor), and her father Dr. Seward (who runs the local asylum) try to make the Count feel welcome to England. The Count quickly takes the life of Mina, and proceeds to romance Lucy, with the intention of making her his greatest bride. Soon after the death of Mina, the Sewards call her father, Dr. Van Helsing to come to their home. As Lucy falls deeper under the spell of the Count, Dr. Van Helsing almost immediately comes to understand that his daughter fell prey to a vampire and discovers the culprit to be none other than the Count himself. Dr. Van Helsing, Dr. Seward, and Johnathan Harker work together to foil the Count’s plans to take Lucy away to his native Transylvania.

Film Review

Though not exactly faithful to the original novel this is still one of the better Dracula movies of the last forty years. Despite the absence of modern digital effects they manage realistic and believable looking wolf and bat transformations. And there are twinges of sympathy to the otherwise vicious yet charismatic portrayal of Dracula by the highly under-rated Frank Langella.I strongly recommend this film to any fan of Dracula. It's a little jarring to a book fan to know the characters of Mina and Lucy had their names swapped and that Mina (portrayed more as the Lucy character of the novel) in this version of Professor Van Helsing's daughter. But Lucy (Mina of the novel) is a great character. This is probably the best developed version of the character I have seen, despite the name swap. She's independent, out spoken and a suffragette. She invites Dracula to dance with her right in front of her own fiancé and you can tell that it's Dracula who is seduced by …

I love Bram Stoker's "Dracula". Not only is it one of my favourite books, its one of the few classic horror novels that remains both gripping and scary. Over the years it has been adapted more times, directly or indirectly, than pretty much any other book, and I've seen most of them from the fantastic (Herzog's "Nosferatu") to the good but flawed (Coppolas version), the bloodily entertaining (most of Hammer's efforts) and the shockingly bad ("Blood for Dracula", "Dracula 2000" and "Blade Trinity" are the standouts here). In terms of my personal preference, I think Herzog's version of "Nosferatu" is my favourite (I far prefer it to the original), while my favourite Count is Christopher Lee.It seems weird then that I've never seen this film, though that probably can be attributed to both the fact that it's hardly ever shown on TV, and the fact that reviews tend to emphasise the romantic aspect…

An imposing Count draws a beautiful young woman into his web; she's unaware this castle-dwelling Casanova is really a vampire who feeds on human blood. Based more on the Hamilton Deane-John L. Balderston play (specifically the 1970s Broadway revival starring Frank Langella) rather than Bram Stoker's novel or Tod Browning's 1931 film, this gorgeously-designed Gothic is imminently watchable if not overtly exciting. Langella smolders appropriately as Dracula, but he's perhaps too glossy and blown-dry (and this appears entirely intentional). Laurence Olivier's Van Helsing is also a disappointment (and the professor is treated unceremoniously by the finale), though Kate Nelligan is luminous (and yet fierce) as Lucy, with Donald Pleasence perfect as her father. The film's design and art direction (in bloodless grays and sudden fiery reds) are captured vividly by cinematographer Gilbert Taylor, and John Badham directs dryly, without too much camp. It isn't …
