Marguerite, South Africa. 31 July 2014

For lovers of special effects, Francis Ford Coppola's interpretation of Bram Stoker's 19th century horror novel, must rank as one of the best of the 1990s. Set to the music of Wojciech Kilar and costumed by Oscar winner Ekio Ishioka, the film opens in 15th century Europe during the Christian Crusades against the invading Turks, and the myths surrounding Vlad the Impaler, one of the most brutal of medieval warriors. Jump ahead to the 19th century and Vlad/Dracula (Gary Oldman), a malevolent being whose blasphemous behaviour 400 years earlier has damned him to an eternal life of questing for human blood, has plans to relocate to London to be reunited with his lost love Elisabeta, now reincarnated as school teacher Mina Murray (Winona Ryder). To do this, Dracula must destroy Mina's fiance Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves), who is lured to his spooky Transylvania castle to become the slave of his lascivious vampires.
Oldman gives a fine performance as the 400 year old count - his Transylvanian costumne and make-up are superb - but Coppola oversteps the mark in having Dracula reappear in London in too many grotesque disguises, none of which is true to Stoker's novel. The sight of Dracula, in ape form, raping Mina's friend Lucy (Sadie Frost), is nothing but a concession to 20th century voyeurism. Nonetheless, Oldham's sensitive performance earns the viewer's sympathy for his character's doomed love affair with Elisabeta / Mina. While none of the other actors is particularly impressive, and this includes Anthony Hopkins as the avenging hero Dr van Helsing, Ryder's delicate beauty and vulnerability make her a natural object of sympathy as she struggles to choose between her lovers.
Annie Lennox provides the haunting "Love Song for a Vampire" that closes the film.
