If you were intrigued at how this masterpierce was put together by Francis Ford Copolla, then this book is for you. Complete with the history of the story, actors who played the characters and the director. Photos are priceless as well. You won't find them anywhere in the internet.

This is ravishingly illustrated, fascinating making-of-book about mistitled but cinematically splendid Bram Stoker´s Dracula, featuring James V Hart´s script, and short but interesting notes of sets, costumes, characters, artistic influences, vampires in folklore and cinema and, of course, Stoker´s novel. There is some mistakes - vampires before 1922 Nosferatu walked happily in sunlight and Stoker´s vampires were created by bite, not victim drinking vampire´s blood - yes, Dracula forces Mina to...more

This is a glorious, glossy volume! Actually, one of my favourite books I own!

Filled with beautiful movie imagery, storyboards, detailed costume designs, sets, the complete script, interviews, anecdotes, all reproduced on the highest quality paper, this book is an absolute delight!

I just wish all of my favourite films received this kind of treatment!

EXCELLENT NOVEL AND MOVIE. DRACULA SHOULD HAVE STAY A PRINCE AND GOT WORD TO HIS BELOVED MINA, THAT HE SURVIVE HIS CRUSADE, AND SHE WOULD HAVE NEVER JUMP TO HER DEATH, WHICH STARTED HIS REVENGE FOR HER LIFE, BY TURNING TO THE DARKNESS OF VAMPIRISM!!!!

Vampires are my favorite reading material. Dracula is positively my favorite book of all times. On a scale of 1 to 10. A 10 and then some.

Some great visuals of the costumes and props in here. The movie could have been better but visually it was wonderful.
