Re: Bram Stoker's Dracula - Yea or Nay?

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!
I'll take Bram Stoker's Dracula any day over the recent BBC Dracula that starred Marc Warren. I'm not sure what, if anything, that film had to do with anything Bram Stoker wrote. It looked fantastic, but as much as I adore Sophia Myles, I couldn't take it and I had to shut it off.

One interesting thing about Bram Stoker's Dracula -- the film got a novelization by Fred Saberhagen. I thought that was a bit pointless; surely, wouldn't it have made more sense for someone to read Stoker's original?
