Dracula aka Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

3.5 / 5
Tagline: Beware
Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
Written by: Bram Stoker, James V. Hart
Actors include: Gary Oldman, Wynona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Romance
Length: 128 minutes
Banned: Nope
Country: USA

This has a wonderful cast and it's a pretty decent retelling of a popular favorite (it's a relatively faithful adaptation of the book from what I understand). We have a young lawyer who is sent to a remote location in Europe where Dracula catches him. It's rather dramatic and the story is the highlight here, it doesn't end up falling into the slasher or gore thing at all in fact they do a remarkable job keeping this as a love story which is very very dark. It's quite lovely but it may not curb your horror cravings if you like high energy stuff.
