Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves, and Anthony Hopkins star in director Francis Ford Coppola's visually stunning, passionately seductive version of the classic Dracula legend. In Bram Stoker's Dracula, Coppola returns to the original source of the Dracula myth, and from that gothic romance, he creates a modern masterpiece. Oldman's metamorphosis as Dracula who grows from old to young, from man to beast is nothing short of amazing. Ryder brings equal intensity to the role of a young beauty, Mina Murray, who becomes the object of Dracula's devastating desire as the spitting image of his deceased wife. Reeves perfectly portrays the lovelorn young lawyer, Jonathan Harker, who is in way over his head and no match for the count's relentless scheming in pursuit of Harker's fiancée, Mina. Hopkins costars as the famed doctor who dares to believe in Dracula, and then dares to confront him. Opulent, dazzling, and utterly irresistible, this is Dracula as you've never seen him. [128 min; drama, fantasy, horror; English, Romanian, Greek, Bulgarian, and Latin with English subtitles]

"Glorious and groundbreaking fantasy cinema, a film that retells the Dracula legend with buckets of visual style, and one that inaugurated a new way of conceptualising the vampire myth: loyal, loving, swaggering, soulful, sexy and hip." — Kevin Maher, Times UK

"Dracula has the nervy enthusiasm of the work of a precocious film student who has magically acquired a master's command of his craft. It's surprising, entertaining and always just a little too much." — Vincent Canby, The New York Times

"Bram Stoker's Dracula is a grand, operatic, hysterical and flawed film. But it is also an incredible spectacle. If this Dracula truly is a failure, I wish more films could fail this beautifully." — Graeme Tucket, Stuff.co.nz
