“Indeed, it is a uniquely dreamlike, lushly romantic, highly erotic and prototypically Coppolaesque version of the story – a movie that does for the vampire genre what The Godfather did for the gangster saga, and what Apocalypse Now did for the war movie: raises it to the level of grand opera.” William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“Coppola has eschewed state-of-the-art special effects in favor of a panoply of archaic film-school tricks—reversing the film, multiple exposures, playing with the shutter speed—that give his Dracula a stylized, almost hyper-real clarity and a wonderfully singular weirdness.” Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
