Product Overview

Contains the horror classics BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA and MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN.

BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA: Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder and Anthony Hopkins star in director Francis Ford Coppola's visually stunning, passionately seductive version of the classic Dracula legend. In Bram Stoker's Dracula, Coppola returns to the original source of the Dracula myth, and from that gothic romance, he creates a modern masterpiece. Gary Oldman's metamorphosis as Dracula who grows from old to young, from man to beast is nothing short of amazing. Winona Ryder brings equal intensity to the role of a young beauty who becomes the object of Dracula's devastating desire. Anthony Hopkins co-stars as the famed doctor who dares to believe in Dracula, and then dares to confront him. Opulent, dazzling and utterly irresistible, this is Dracula as you've never seen him. And once you've seen Bram Stoker's Dracula, you'll never forget it.

MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN: Robert De Niro, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hulce, Helena Bonham Carter, Aidan Quinn, Ian Holm and John Cleese star in Branagh's acclaimed adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. True to the original, here is the story of a young doctor whose obsession with death leads him to create a life. But his "creature" crafted from the bodies of convicts and the brain of a brilliant scientist, is a hideous mockery of humanity. And when the creature realizes he will never be accepted by men, he seeks revenge on Dr. Frankenstein and his family. An inspired adaptation that's emotionally complex and truly terrifying.

Editors Note
Note A stunning double feature DVD; BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA is Francis Ford Coppola's interpretation of the classic vampire tale featuring Gary Oldman as the chilling title character. Opening during the medieval period when the crusades call Vlad the Impaler away from his home and true love to fight in the name of God; upon returning, he discovers his wife dead by her own hand, having falsely learned of his death. Vlad renounces God and takes up an immortal life aligned with Satan as Count Dracula. Centuries later real estate agent Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) visits him on business; upon seeing a picture of his lover Mina Murray (Winona Ryder), the count becomes convinced that she is the reincarnation of his dead love, imprisons Harker, and leaves to pursue the unwitting young woman.^Robert Walton is the captain of a North Pole-bound whaling vessel that picks up a lone man traveling across the ice; that man happens to be Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Kenneth Branagh), and he has a story to tell. Having become obsessed with finding a cure for death after the gruesome demise of his mother during childbirth, the doctor pieced together a man from parts collected from the poor sections of town. Realizing that his appearance would ostracize him forever, denying him all chance for friendship or love, the creature turns on his creator and those close to him including his lover (Helena Bonham-Carter).

Review [Dracula] This is [director Francis Ford] Coppola the master showman, the conjurer and maestro, directing at full tilt... It is Coppola's most lavish and, certainly, his most flamboyant film; never before has he allowed himself this kind of mad experimentation. And never has he executed these feats of prestidigitation with such control, or such childlike pleasure in playing with his cinematic toys.

Review [Dracula] I enjoyed the movie simply for the way it looked and felt. Production designers Dante Ferreti and Thomas Sanders have outdone themselves. The cinematographer, Michael Ballhaus, gets into the spirit so completely be always seems to light with shadows. Oldman and Ryder and Hopkins pant with eagerness. The movie is an exercise in feverish excess, and for that if for little else, I enjoyed it.

Review [Frankenstein] Whatever mistakes it may make, this new Frankenstein -- director Kenneth Branagh's overblown but occasionally inspired take on the old tale of monster and man -- must be granted this: It has a strong stomach, and it does not flinch from some baroquely gory imaginings. In particular, moviegoers will find much to chew on in the film's portrait of Victor Frankenstein as both a scientist usurping God's power to draw boundaries around life--and a man appropriating woman's power to give birth... The prime directive behind Mary Shelley's Frankenstein seems to have been: stick close to Shelley's original tale and stay as far away as possible from the classic, Boris Karloff-inhabited original movies... The result may often wobble between costume drama and psychodrama, cautionary tale and demented love story. But at least it's a horror film with a brain--albeit one that sometimes seems to be pickled in a jar.
