The best adaptation I’ve seen so far

There is beastiality, and the love of Dracula is not accurate from the books perspective yet adds flavor. The beastiality is brief and unnecessary, and degraded the movie. Otherwise very accurate and very good. The mood gives a sense of disorientation which the book presents so well. This is the only vampire movie worth watching in my opinion. (I’ve watched more than my fair share)
