Definetely a classic by Francis Ford Coppola, based on the well crafted Bram Stoker novel I read long ago and still own.
I bought it this time so as to send it to my daughter, now away on academic pursuit,, who wanted to borrow my DVD (bought as replacement for a VHS).
The movie closely fits the original plot, with more than one clever and creative added features. Comedians offer great performance, each one in his own way, some of them more seasoned, some of them printing their early footprints.
If you are in for a good vampire movie, go on, you won't be disappointed.
