I liked "Bram Stoker's Dracula" but it ended up being about a 3.5 for me. The visuals were stunning and Gary Oldman was perfect but there were a lot of tonal problems for me. Perhaps it's more that I just can't get over Dracula's "Golden Girls" hairdo (that awful fucking bun...geez...that bun...) and kept getting yanked out of the moment. Same thing with "Interview..." minus the hair issues: I'd be riding the movie along and then something would pull me out. Still dig the hell out of 'em, though.
It is a shame about "Near Dark," too. Even though I prefer "The Lost Boys," "Near Dark" was the more serious film and was owed a lot more respect. Plus, Bill frickin' Paxton as a vampire? Is there anything that guy can't do?

It's too bad Near Dark got overshadowed by Lost Boys when it came out, what a great film. I really liked Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stokers Dracula a lot, visually stunning. Did you ever see the version of Nosferatu with Type O Negative music over it? Pretty cool! Maybe I need to watch 30 Days of Night again, I was disappointed when I saw it in the theater.

"The one thing about Santa Carla, too many God damn vampires!" What no "Lost Boys: The Thirst" Ha ha just kidding. It's good to see Feldman still getting jobs.

YES Love the Lost Boys but what about Bram Stokers or whatever? Interview while not a horror movie was quite creepy as well
