From The FANGORIA Vault: “Bram Stoker’s DRACULA”

DraculaFeatu

Greetings, Fangoria Readers! We’re digging once more through the vaults here, and today I was delighted to stumble upon a few shots from one of my favorite adaptations of BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA.

The film was exactly what it should have been, a beautiful recreation of Bram Stoker’s story through the eyes of one of the greatest living filmmakers: Francis Ford Coppola, who hadn’t made a horror film since the beginning of his career. Coppola’s impressive art design and innovative filmmaking techniques, as well as his inspired casting (save for his Jonathan Harker) made for an adaptation of the story with gravitas. Gone was the high camp that Dracula had embodied, and Gary Oldman gave an unforgettable performance as the Count.

Despite being a box office sensation and a winner of three Academy-Awards,  the picture is still divisive among horror fans. Where do you stand with BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA? Check out the photos below and let us know!

    Huge disappointment. A perversion of Stoker’s work. Turning Dracula into a tragic romantic hero instead of an evil, satanic monster was a huge mistake. He and Mina weren’t lovers, she was a pawn that he used to keep track of his enemies. He essentially RAPED her, it wasn’t an act of love. The film had a lot of potential, much of it was wasted.
