The story of the Dracula, famed vampire count of Transylvania, has been told innumerably though the last century, first appearing in a ‘20s silent film version “Nosferatu”, then in ‘30s played by Bela Lugosi, then in ‘60s by Christopher Lee, later Gary Oldman, Gerard Butler…and so on and so on. At this point the character’s been cinematically portrayed almost as much as Santa Claus and finding original ways to approach Bram Stoker’s original text is becoming all the more difficult without drifting into camp or self-parody.
