This version of Dracula is pretty well done. The hazy film-making is visually satisfying, and some of the special effects are - simply put - amazing. Overall, Dracula is a good film and is worth seeing for its visuals alone. It is not, however, the strongest adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel.
This movie is full of metaphors. Compared to other horror movies that are filled with violence and immorality, this movie is interesting in that you have to find the hidden meanings of the metaphorical references. The story is also unique in that there are clear emotional ties between all the characters that make up the cast.
