Bram Stoker's Dracula | 1992 | R | - 7.7.0

English actor Gary Oldman delivers a sympathetic performance as the Count, in this case more the Prince of Pain than Darkness, especially when he cries bloody tears for his lost love. Also with Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Anthony Hopkins.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Sex with vampires, male and female, some female nudity, lots of writhing around and sexual innuendo. In order to become a vampire, one must go through a ritual where each drinks the others blood. There is a scene where this ritual is shown in a sexual light. A woman drinks the blood of a man by opening a wound on his chest. Another scene where three female vampires are shown nude, seducing and sexually teasing a man. He is terrified, but seems to enjoy it.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - The opening scene is of Dracula stabbing a cross after he discovers his wife is dead, the whole room fills with blood. Decapitations, blood pouring from inanimate as well as animate objects, people are impaled (in silhouette). There is a scene where Dracula is shaving another man and he cuts him with the razor. Vampires are beheaded, off screen, but we see Anthony Hopkins throwing their heads off a cliff.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
