Mine: I do not remember this all that well. I will have to see it again. Great cast. Great director. Time for a re-viewing.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Sumptuous retelling of the Dracula legend as originally conceived by Stoker in his 1897 novel. Avenging the death of his beloved wife, a 15th-century Romanian warrior lives on through the ages... and sets his sights on Victorian London. Sexual, sinuous, exquisitely realized (using every movie artifice imaginable); occasionally let down by story lags... but always has one more goodie up its sleeve. Written by James Victor Hart. Kudos to Thomas Sanders' production design, Michael Ballhaus' cinematography, and Wojciech Kilar's powerful music. Won Oscars for makeup, sound effects editing, and costume design.

This is my all time favorate movie. I love how Copella viewed Stokers love story. The sadness of how Dracula and his love, no matter how hard they try, cant be together still makes me cry. But yet its bitter sweet in the end how she ended is suffering. Thats why I give this movie five stars

The difficulty with this movie is that it have very little to do with Bram Stoker's novel. It in fact shares more similarity with the original "The Mummy" than anything else. Boo says I, Stoker did better by his novel.
