Rating: 3/5 -- This is sort of a Saturday Night Fever version of the story with a stylish, afro'ed Langella walking around with an open shirt looking for girls to take to his Castle Disco. Full Review

Rating: 49/100 -- Several horror scenes, notably those not involving Dracula himself, are genuinely creepy. Full Review

All of this should either make us shiver or giggle or both, but it doesn't do anything. Something has been lost not only on the road from Transylvania, but on the road from Broadway to Hollywood. Full Review

A handsome, moody rendition, more romantic than menacing. Full Review

John Badham directs with great verve and pace, considerably helped by the atmospheric organ music of John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra. Full Review

Product Description:

This stylish production of the classic gothic horror tale has Frank Langella repeating his electrifying, award-winning stage performance as the blood-thirsty count, and Laurence Olivier as his arch-nemesis, the devout vampire hunter, Van Helsing. High atop a foggy seaside cliff lies a foreboding asylum, home to the doctor (Donald Pleasence) who runs it, and his beautiful and free-spirited daughter, Lucy (Kate Nelligan). The doctor and Lucy have taken in Mina (Jay Francis), a weak and sickly young friend of Lucy's, whom they are attempting to nurse back to health. On a dark and gloomy night, a torrential storm ravages their coastal home and a ship crashes to its doom on a nearby craggy shore. The only survivor of the shipwreck, is a seductive and mysterious young man named Dracula (Frank Langella). The debonaire count charms the willing and nubile Mina, who is soon discovered dead from mysterious causes. In horror, her father is contacted and Van Helsing arrives in haste, only to discover the real identity of the suave and beguiling count, just as he has picked his new bride, the lovely Lucy. This fabulous John Badham-directed adaptation of the classic tale combines camp, a superbly atmospheric score by John Williams, and a remarkable ensemble cast for a wildly seductive horror spectacle.

A Great Interpretation Movie Lover: from Cedar Falls, IA US -- October, 17, 2009

This is possibly the best version of Dracula since the Lugosi classic. It's poetic, atmospheric, & yet succeeds as a Gothic horror masterpiece.
The film takes some inexplicable liberties with the story, but they don't hinder it in the slightest.
Bela Lugosi, toward the end of his life, longed to star in a color remake of Dracula. I believe he'd be excited & overwhelmed by this interpretation.
