Bram Sotker's Dracula

The film, Bram Stoker's Dracula, is a wonderful adaptation of Bram Stoker's book. The film follows the book almost faithfully and is fast paced and gripping. This book is a must-have for Dracula fans; and I recommend another book, The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, that, by its title, would not lead a Dracula fan to read it. But, by all means, I highly recommend it and you will not be able to put the book down. The Historian will sweep you off of your feet with its well documented Dracula story.

One of My Favorites

Yes, it is slightly campy and overacted but it was a genuine reproduction of the book - only better. The mood, the story, the characters, the castle, I liked it all.This Dracula is not the violent, blood-thirsty monster featured in so many of these types of movies. Instead, Gary Oldham (what a selection!) is the dark, sensuous eternal phantom, at once mesmerizing and intoxicating. The trick of using a diary is especially effective in this case in that it gives the story some structure. Even Keanu Reeves was good as the helpless husband.

A GREAT BOOK!

Marvelous account of the film.

If you liked this movie, you will like this book even more. It is perhaps one of the best books about the making of a film ever written. You will even get a chance to enjoy the script, and the actors' thoughts. Director Copppola is quoted throughout, as well as the costume designers, and other people involved. However, I felt, as I read through the book, that there was not enough about Gary Oldman, who starred as Dracula. I was looking forward to more of HIS insights than any one else's, for it was HE who brought such new and wonderful emotions to the role. The pictures in the book are wonderful. Drawings and little un-known facts are everywhere, making this truly an interesting read.
