The shot of Harker walking in was shot in reverse with him walking backwards so it ran forward giving it an odd look.

I've never quite understood that whole origin bit. Lots of people get pissed at god. Not all of their candles start bleeding.

Also, if this is Stoker's Dracula, why put in something that wasn't in STOKER'S Dracula?


there's a few liberties taken with the script, I think they called it Bram Stokers Dracula to try an differentiate it from previous films......originally it was just going to be called D


I'd have gone with Coppola's Dracula. Oddly enough, there is a story called Coppola's Dracula by Kim Newman. It's a part of his Anno Dracula series. Highly recommended stuff.

Hairy palms. I guess we know how Dracula spends his nights. Alone.

I love all the in camera tricks they did like that, it really shows the strength practical effects have over many CGI effects

Every scene I think has some kind of incamera effect. Some obvious. Others subtle. Pretty extraordinary even by today's standards.

The oldest of my cats (she's 14) is named Mina. Her sister, a very pretty kitty, was named Lucy. Lucy, sadly, died young.
