Product Description

Adaptation of the popular novel by Bram Stoker. The future seems full of promise for 20-something aristocrat Arthur (Dan Stevens). He has the world at his feet and is about to marry the love of his life Lucy (Sophia Myles). But all that comes crashing down when he learns that he's inherited an horrific and highly contagious disease. His desperation to cheat death is set to bring destruction to all those around him - including his new wife - as he becomes embroiled with a sinister blood cult who lure him with the false promise of curing his disease. Arthur unwittingly sends innocent young lawyer Harker (Rafe Spall) to meet the fatally charismatic Count Dracula (Marc Warren).

Format:DVD
The umpteenth in a long line of screen adaptations of Bram Stoker's iconic literary creation the BBC's 2006 production has the dubious distinction of a unorthodox casting in "Hustle's" Marc Warren as the vampiric Count while diverting more so from Stoker's classic novel than previous versions.

This version sees young English estate agent, Jonathan Harker journeying to Transylvania to finalise the sale of a property being bought by the aged Count Dracula. Little does he realise and all of us are more than aware, the Count is a vampire and upon learning this, Jonathan is murdered by Dracula. Meanwhile back in England , Jonathan's fiancé, Mina Murray is celebrating the imminent nuptials of her best friend Lucy Westernra to Lord Arthur Holmwood. However, unknown to Lucy her husband to be has contracted syphilis, a disease that was passed on to him by his father before his birth and is therefore unable to consummate their marriage. In the vain hope of ridding himself of the fatal illness he enlists the services of Dracula who he has been told can rid him of the affliction and aided him to secure the purchase of Carfax Abbey as a residence in London. But the Count has his own agenda and with the help of a cult who worship him, he plots to make London his own personal feeding ground. It is only the sage knowledge of Dutch professor, Abraham Van Helsing that can put a stop to Dracula's plans.

The BBC has a distinguished history, particularly when it comes to costume drama's and while it's beautiful to look at and the scenes in Transylvania are brought brilliantly to life, this latest adaptation is incredibly misjudged, hollow and ultimately unfulfilling. The problem primarily is with the unnecessary alterations made to the films source material.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Dracula has no bite! 24 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
I have been a fan of the Dracula novel and most of the various film adaptations as well, so when I heard of this brand new version I couldn't wait to see it. Unfortunately, I shouldn't have wasted my time. This is the most stale, dramatically empty version of the story I've ever seen. Most of the versions prior to this, although never a straight presentation of the novel, did put parts of it on screen. This one, in a move to be 'daring' and 'sexy' chose to put in a plot line about a sexually transmitted disease and for the action to be filmed at jaunty angles. Everyone is woefully miscast, especially Marc Warren as the Count. There is no mystery about him, no air of menace, just blandness. Not only that, but where are his brides? His transformations into a wolf or a bat? Where's the race against time finale? There's just no driving force in this adaptation at all. One of the most crucial characters, Van Helsing, doesn't appear until the last 25 minutes. And one of the most crucial scenes - Lucy's transformation and destruction happens in the last 10 minutes. Catch any of the Hammer movies, they're infinately better. Or check out the 1970's version with Frank Langella - a superb movie and possibly the best version to date. Anything to avoid this!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dire; so bad, I wish they hadn't bothered. 18 Dec 2012
Format:DVD
A prime example of ghastly 'event' television during Mark Thompson's time as BBC Director General; resources were being spread so thinly that when an adaptation was attempted it had to be something oh so familiar to ensure a basic audience, and then it had to be given a 'modern' (i.e. trendy) twist, to justify doing it at all.

Unfortunately, it looks like the 'spreading resources thinly' approach is set to stay, even if twentieth century and twenty-first century works are now more likely to be adapted rather than those from the nineteenth century like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely absent Dracula 13 Oct 2008
Format:DVD
Despite the title, there's really not a lot of Dracula in this adaption.

Marc Warren is okay in the lead - but this is all it comes to unfortunately. Everything about this is just 'okay', on the verge of being boring.

Sophia Myles is beautiful as always - but we get to see only the briefest glimpse of her after she is 'turned', and that's just a bit disappointing.

A bit of a let down.

1.0 out of 5 stars An insult to the orginal story 6 Jan 2007
By Bezerus Bezby VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I was really looking forward to this tv adaptation. I have been a fan of this novel since I was a small child, but it was a big disappointment. I cannot understand why they changed the story in such a way, ie, Lord Holmwood has a nasty STD and asks Dracula over for a cup of tea to sort him out. Dracula turns nasty (duhh!)

The acting was bad, the script was poor and I will never understand why film/tv makers feel the need to always change this story. If it aint broke, don't fix it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bram Stoker will be spinning in his grave! 19 Jan 2007
Format:DVD
This 'adaptation' is so far from the original novel as to be almost unrecognisable. Many would argue that we don't need yet another spin on the classic vampire yarn and this does much to reinforce that opinion. The performances are very average, the usually dependable Marc Warren being especially disappointing (though he was probably not helped by the amateurish dialogue and clumsy direction). There are brief moments of inspiration and some occasionally nice cinematography, but not enough to elevate the whole affair above the average.

One day someone will have the talent to recreate the suspense of the original novel. Until then, avoid this like the plague (of undead!).
