Comments:

I really liked this movie a lot. More than most I would say. This is another of those films I always make sure to watch near Halloween. Oldman was good as Dracula, and even Keanu Reeves put in a decent performance. But the guy who stole the show IMO was Anthony Hopkins. His Van Helsing is even crazier than his Hannibal the Cannibal rendition! This version is pure Coppola, with a lot of opulence and epic proportions. It also doesn't follow the novel faithfully. With all of that said, it is probably my favorite Dracula movie, although the Hammer version is a close second. This one belongs in a good horror collection, unless you hate Reeves of course...
