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!

By Shelley
Format:DVD
ok like most vampire fans i was very much looking forward to this new version of Dracula, but i wish i had not wasted my time setting up the video recorder.
Dracula- who chose him to play the lead role, his acting skills where crap and i've seen the Jack Parlance version of Dracula i think i enjoyed that more!, Castle bad trying to hard to copy Gary Oldman, and can some one please tell me where the vampiresses were and why Johnathan does not escape he does not get killed in the castle he get's out and finds Sister Agatha.
i can't remember seening any gyspy's, and i don't know why Dracula wears Johnathans clothes when he is in Whitby in the day time because if you remember in the book Johnathan see's Dracula wearing his clothes out of the window when he's locked in the castle, and Dracula is on his way to the village masqurading as Johnathan to post the letters.
i can't remember seeing Quincy P. Morris in the film or Renfield, Dr Seward is in it.....thats all i can say, didn't realy do much in the film, oh before i forget Athur Holmwood is in the film, and all the way throw it he's trying to get Dracula to give him the dark gift which drag's throw the whole film.
And Lucy does get embraced but only in the last half an hour of the film and again trying to hard to copy Gary Oldman, while Mina never get's embraced by the vampire instead she get's out witted by a white sheet down in a cellar where and i still can not believe it, you meet one of the most key leading figures of the book sitting in the dark in the last 10 mins of the film VAN HELSING................and i don't remember if Dracula get's staked i think he get's shot or he might get staked after he get's shot i forget i was just just glad that the film was over.

DON'T BUY THIS GET THE 1992 FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA DRACULA, IT IS FAR THE MOST BEST DRACULA FILM I HAVE EVER SEEN, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS NEW HOG WASH OF A MOVIE.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful... JUST... Awful. 4 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
Funnily enough this TV Movie was created by BBC not ITV, although it says it on the DVD. And it isnt the first time BBC have created a TV Dracula movie. There was one in 1977, which in my eyes is one of the greatest Dracula movie's to date. Where as this... what went wrong. They completely changed the story. Only small part's are close to the book. For Example: Like how Dracula starts off as an old man and slowely gets younger. Now normally i dont mind if it isnt Accurate to the novel. My favorite Dracula movie is the 1931 movie starring Bela Lugosi, and even that differs alot from the novel. But the thing is, i dont like the changes in this movie. It just doesnt work. For a start i dont like the whole Arthur getting cyphilis storyline. It was un-nessecarilly boring and didnt make it better. Van-Helsing, only get's like 10 minuets screen time. AND THANK GOD! David Suchet's performance is so dull. Van Helsing doesn't do anything but winge and wine. He looks and sounds and acts weak. Marc Warren as Dracula. He only gets a small amount of screen time. So from what i can tell, he's an alright Dracula. He's not bad. But he's to young and doesn't do much. The rest of the whole movie is pretty much talking about a wedding and talking about cyphilis.

So all in all this is by far the worst Dracula movie ive seen so far. If you want a BBC Dracula movie to watch, ignore this one, and stick with the 1977 version.
