2.0 out of 5 stars Dud June 29, 2009
Format:DVD
Unlike some I actually thought that the production values weren't all that bad.

What is bad about this film is the plot, coupled with direction/editing that sucks any sense of excitement out of the film before it gets to your screen.

Take for instance Dracula is able, using his mind powers to lift a guy off his feet and make him float towards a noose. The film suddenly cuts as apparently we can't see him die, because that would be too exciting and we only see the results. Odd too, given these powers that in the end Dracula chooses to fight it out with a sword.

Dracula's guest in this film is Kelsey McCann who is quite pretty and does her best at an English accent. She is imprisoned by Dracula who puts her in a cave, that's got a cage door across the front to prevent her getting out. Her love finds her and they exchange conversation through the bars. She says something like "He took something that I was saving for you" (meaning her virginity), though we never see that because that too would be too exciting. Thus, it's overly-big then on dialogue. Dracula and guest spend quite some time at it and all this leaves one bored and waiting for something to happen. Then, later, they talk about what did happen, but not that we were allowed to see it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stoker must be turning in his grave March 13, 2010
Format:DVD
This has to be one of the most laughable versions of Dracula I have ever seen. Acting, writing, editing, directing, in fact everything about this movie is just awful. Don't waste your money on this trash unless you want a good laugh. The director would have made Ed Wood proud.

1.0 out of 5 stars IT DOESN'T GET MUCH WORSE THAN THIS April 3, 2010
Format:DVD
"Dracula's Guest" began as one of several short stories published after Stoker's death by his widow, Florence. Some critics believe the she wrote the story herself as the literary style is unlike Stoker's. Be that as it may, the film has no resemblance to the original story or even to a halfway competent B-movie. The plot, direction, writing, sets and production values are ghastly. Filmed entirely in and around Los Angeles, "Dracula's Guest" has the dramatic impact of a 1950's television commercial and all the thrills of watching paint dry. While Wes Ramsey is quite good as Bram Stoker and does not overdo the Irish accent, his love interest, Elizabeth, played by Kelsey McCann, mangles the British accent with nasal American vowels. Some of the supporting players are quite good, other terrible, but even the best performances can't lift this tedious, cheaply made exploitation movie from the mire of its miserable script and equally miserable direction. The movie does have its uses, I must admit. If you suffer from insomnia and are sick of paying through the nose for Lunesta, buy "Dracula's Guest" and play it before going to bed. You'll sleep like -- dare I say it? -- the dead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bram Stoker's Dracula's Guest February 28, 2010
Format:DVD
They should have gone back to the editing room and picked up the film cuts on the floor and inserted them into the final version. Perhaps, it would have made it a decent film on the subject of Dracula.

As it is, this film is conjoined with gaps in the storyline. Elizabeth's conversational style is so laden with Victorian colloquialism that you feel sorry for her to have to recite this script. Definitely, as Elizabeth softly stated, she was "broken".

Count Dracula was as menacing and sinister as a goldfish. Forget about any European sex appeal. It isn't there. Andrew Bryniarski,the actor, had a few brief moments,but he had little to work with on this script. Probably, the worst Dracula presentation that I have seen in film, and I have seen a great number of Dracula type films in my life.

Michael Feifer wrote and this directed this film. He has an impressive resume, and he did a cameo as Admiral Murray's driver. However, Mr. Feifer's resume could have survived without this inclusion.

A nice touch was to cast Bram Stoker,the author of Dracula,as the lead character and romantic interest for Elizabeth. Unfortunately, Elizabeth Murray was a bit too liberalized for the Victorian era, and the match did not seem to be made in heaven, especially with her bloodline and special destiny which her father aptly reminded her.

The motif of star crossed lovers facing separation and tragedy is a noble concept which the film explored in a very limited fashion. Perhaps, this is where the fault is -the story never undocked from its moorings. If it had, it would have been a better story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Note to self- check reviews first! September 16, 2008
Format:DVD
Gawd, what an awful movie. There, that's out of the way. The other reviewers have done a fair job at explaining why this movie is bad (LOW budget effects, didn't follow the original story much at all, etc). But what really puzzles me is why they hired Andrew Bryniarski to play Dracula. Up until now, most of us horror-philes agreed that the chubbiest vampire on record was Lon Chaney Jr's "Son of Dracula" (which I liked in spite of Chaney's being a well fed vamp). Bryniarski has about 100 pounds on Chaney. Tall? Gaunt? Corpselike? No way- this Drac's been to the "all you can eat" buffet. Now I gave it two stars because I did like the period costumes. I mean, I had to find something redeeming in this film, eh? But the others are right- rent it if you must, but if you buy it, you'll be using it as a drink coaster after you watch it.
