« Lucy met me at the station, looking sweeter and lovelier than ever | Main | No news from Jonathan. I am getting quite uneasy about him »



It's not always a fifahtul adaptation; FFC sexed up the story quite a bit, or so it seemed to me at the time. But considering how jaw-droppingly suggestive some parts of the novel are, it seems less jarring in retrospect (except maybe for the whole Dracula/Mina love story plotline). There's some crazily baroque set and costume design, and Anthony Hopkins chews the scenery to bits entertainingly as Van Helsing.(Also, having just checked the cast on IMDB: that was Tom Waits as Renfield?! That settles it. I must see it again.)
