This new adaptation of Dracula cleverly retells Bram Stoker's one-hundred and eleven year-old classic novel while retaining the terror and suspense of the original book. As the mysterious Count Dracula begins to exert his evil will upon the residents of London, Jonathan Harker and friends are forced to quickly unravel the mystery before time runs out. Rich with emotion and colorful characters, this adaptation restores characters and plot points left out by most other productions. Sanders and crew bring us along for a frightening journey interspersed with special effects, illusions, exciting costumes, and all the drama and flair of Victorian England.
