Dracula Plot Synopsis:

This version of Dracula is closely based on Bram Stoker's classic novel of the same name. A young lawyer (Jonathan Harker) is assigned to a gloomy village in the mists of eastern Europe. He is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire Dracula, who travels to London, inspired by a photograph of Harker's betrothed, Mina Murray. In Britain, Dracula begins a reign of seduction and terror, draining the life from Mina's closest friend, Lucy Westenra. Lucy's friends gather together to try to drive Dracula away.

Dracula (1992) Review

Bram Stoker’s Dracula is one of my favorite horror movies. Bram Stoker’s Dracula vampire movie is about the sides of all of the characters and is beautifully done. Dracula (Gary Oldman) is pretty much straight from the book. Dracula is shown as not only a monster/villain but also as a grief-stricken lover who was betrayed by his God. From the beginning of Dracula’s reign from hell as a master vampire to his demise. Bram Stoker’s Dracula is beautifully told and portrayed by each and every one of the cast. We, however, see only one mention of the order of the Dracul, but Dracula barely touches the subject. Dracula love interest Mina (Winona Ryder) is married to Harker (Keanu Reeves), and Dracula will do anything to get her back. Dracula first feasts on Minas’ friend and converts her into a creature of the night, a vampire. It is from here that Dr. Van Helsing (Anthony Hopkins) is brought on to help the fair Lucy (Sadie Frost) and discovers that he is up against the King of all Vampires, Dracula. Performances were spot on and incredibly done making this one of my favorite films that I watch every few years.
