Dracula ★ 2006

Nonsensical adaptation of the Dracula story that uses little of Stoker's tale (and much ridiculous invention). Lord Holmwood (Stevens) discovers he has syphilis, which endangers his marriage to Lucy (Myles). Apparently inviting the fanged one (Warren)—who seems to now be a member of a sinister blood cult—to England will offer a potential cure. 90m/C DVD . Marc Warren, Dan Stevens, Sophia Myles, David Suchet, Tom Burke, Stephanie Leo-nidas, Rafe Spall; D: Bill Eagles; W: Stewart Harc-ourt; M: Dominik Scherrer. TV
