    I’ve never read Bram Stoker’s classic vampire chiller Dracula, though I’d very much like to. But I HAVE seen this film version and, unlike some of these morons who wrote “reviews” or “comments” about it, I not only liked it, I liked it a lot. It’s a lot better than the 1931 film Bela Lugosi was in, a film I didn’t find scary or appealing at all. And, in fact, it’s superior to the 1950s classic Horror of Dracula. For fans of these films, there’s nothing wrong with either of them; they’re simply not films I care for at all. And, thinking about it, I apologize to the people I called morons; I just DO NOT like it when someone writes only negative reviews of books or movies to be posted online, either at Amazon or elsewhere. There are apparently too many people who don’t realize a certain, undeniable fact about movies, books, and their opinions: If you don’t like a certain book or movie, that’s your right, and your choice; it’s a free country. That, of course, gives you the right to voice your opinions of movies or books in an “online review” or “customer review.” But think about this: When you badmouth a certain book or movie, it’s also fans of that particular book or movie who may wind up reading that. Granted, any fan of said movie or book doesn’t HAVE to. Still, the reason I avoid such reviews after reading only a few words is the reason any fan understandably would: It’s insulting to see your favorite book get completely insulted. It’s also insulting to see YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE GET INSULTED!!! Now that I have my little rant out of the way, let’s talk about the movie, shall we? If, as everyone says, this is a faithful adaptation of the book, I can’t wait to read the book! To me, this is truly a stylish, exquisitely crafted film full of chilling twists and turns, great performances, fantastic, sometimes gothically spooky settings, and terrifyingly perfect special effects. And “terrifying” is an absolutely accurate word to describe how scary this nightmare is! While Gary Oldman delivers an amazing portrayal of the undead count, the special effects that show him growing from old to young at will, from man to beast, etc., help to make this film tense, suspenseful, unnerving! I mentioned at the beginning of this comment, or “review” that I liked this movie. I lied. I LOVE this movie! A must-see!
