Dracula searches 19th Century London for his soulmate....

"Eerie, romantic and operatic, this exquisitely mounted revamp of the undead legend is a supreme artistic achievement. Francis Ford Coppola's film is grandiose in visual approach and uses every cinematic trick — from the basic atmospheric lighting of the silent era to today's more sophisticated techniques — to accentuate the poetic sensuality of Stoker's chiller rather than the more exploitative blood-sucking elements. Keanu Reeves's acting may not be to everyone's taste, but, as the tired count who has overdosed on immortality, Gary Oldman's towering performance holds centre stage and burns itself into the memory." - Radio Times Review
