SCREENING

Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Saturday, Dec 11 at 3:30 PM

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1992, 128 mins. With Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, Sadie Frost, Keanu Reeves, Tom Waits. In adapting the original Victorian-era Gothic vampire novel, Coppola pulled out all the stops and then some. For his rendition of the Dracula story, Coppola produced a quirky, idiosyncratic, and over-the-top cascade of lush and violent horror imagery that was, miraculously, a box-office smash. Working with brilliantly self-imposed limitations (all practical effects that would have been possible in the silent era); cramming every frame with monumental sets and matte paintings; and directing Oldman in one of his finest performances as the devilishly romantic Transylvanian count, Coppola created a film so sensational that even the notoriously horror-averse Academy Awards honored it three times, for makeup, sound effects, and Eiko Ishioka’s dazzling costumes.
