The book, yea. The movie, nay.
Yep. Looked great but it was just shallow.
Thirded. Make your Dracula flick if you want, but don't call it Bram Stoker's Dracula if those viewing it are left seriously wondering if the director has even read the damned book!


Of all the different versions of the novel I've seen on film, for my money, the BBC version of Count Dracula from the '70s starring Louis Jordan as the count comes the closest to the book. Coppla does earn points for including the character of Quincy Morris though.

Ross- Joey, homo-sapiens are people.
