Bram Stoker's Dracula

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola

Starring: Gary Oldman, Winonna Ryder, Keanu Reeves, Anthony Hopkins, and Cary Elwes

Release Date: November 13, 1992
Adapted from the novel, Francis Ford Coppola visualizes one of literature's greatest villains for a new generation. The cast is fantastic, from Gary Oldman playing sympathetic villain Dracula, Winona Ryder as lovestruck Mina Murray/Harker, to Anthony Hopkins as Abraham Van Helsing. While the film does have one or two snags (such as the "werewolf" costume) the film does a great job of capturing a gothic mood and playing up the more romantic aspects of Dracula while remembering the horror and darkness of the story.

Rating: * * * * 1/2 of 5
