Just finished the movie. So glad I popped it in.I really enjoyed every second of it! I am not sure I would call this a horror. More a suspense/thriller. Butit did have some horror aspects I think. I thought I had the ending figured out, but no! This one did fool me.This film is easily worth the time it takes to watch it. I would highly recommend it if you never seen it before!

     Bram Stoker's Dracula: Collector's Edition (1992/United States)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (United States)
Director:Francis Ford Coppola
Writing:Bram Stoker (Original Material By), James V. Hart (Screenwriter)
Length:127 min.
Video:Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English: PCM: 5.1, English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Czech: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Hungarian: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Polish: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Russian: Dolby Digital: 4.0, Commentary: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround

Stars:
Gary Oldman as Dracula

Anthony Hopkins as Professor Abraham Van Helsing
Keanu Reeves as Jonathan Harker
Richard E. Grant as Dr. Jack Seward

Plot:
Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder and Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins (1991 Best Actor in a Leading Role, The Silence of the Lambs) star in Oscar® winning director Francis Ford Coppola's (1974 Best Director, The Godfather: Part II) visually stunning, passionately seductive version of the classic Dracula legend. In BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA, Coppola returns to the original source of the Dracula myth, and from that gothic romance, he creates a modern masterpiece.

Gary Oldman's metamorphosis as Dracula – who grows from old to young, from man to beast – is nothing short of amazing. Winona Ryder brings equal intensity to the role of a young beauty who becomes the object of Dracula's devastating desire. Anthony Hopkins co-stars as the famed doctor who dares to believe in Dracula, and then dares to confront him. Opulent, dazzling and utterly irresistible, this is Dracula as you've never seen him. And once you've seen BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA, you'll never forget it.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Audio Commentary
  • Feature Trailers
  • Bonus Trailers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Introduction by Francis Ford Coppola


My Thoughts:

One of my favorite tellings of the story. I really do enjoy this film a lot... though I tend to go a long time in between viewings. Probably due to the length of the film itself. Being up over 2 hours I need to get myself in the mood for a movie of that length. I do find this one to be slow at times... but I think that is to be expected in a film as story driven as this one. But I think most everyone did a good job in this movie. Definitely worth the time put in to watch it. Highly recommended.

Emily Rose (Jennifer Carpenter, White Chicks) was an average teenage girl who was the target of terrifying demonic forces that would ultimately shock a town and torment her soul. But was she, as many believed, possessed? In an attempt to clear the clergymen who exorcised Emily, a skeptical attorney (Linney) awakens to the discovery that powerful spiritual forces may actually exist. This harrowing film unfolds like a recurring nightmare form which there is no waking.

My Thoughts:

Going into this one the only thing I remembered is that I enjoyed it the first time. It says this movie is based on true events. I would like to learn more about the actual events. this one stars Jennifer Carpenter who is the actress that plays Dexter's sister Debra on Dexter. I really liked her in this film and really liked her in Dexter. I really enjoyed the way this movie was done. I think it is a good mixture of horror and courtroom drama. It makes for an extra interesting story line. In my opinion... this movie is well worth checking out if you haven't already.
