Bram Stoker's Dracula vs. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein



on 12/18/2010

I loved both of these, but between Bram Stoker's Dracula and its unofficial sequel, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, I'm a bit torn. I loved the supernatural effects in Dracula, but I also loved how Frankenstein's creation is portrayed closer to the book than in the past incarnations. Both had incredible an incredible cast line-up (although I think Frankenstein has more of an edge on that), and the lead monsters also were amazing (however, I think Oldman's Dracula wins out over De Niro's Creature). For now, I think I'll give it to Frankenstein. You know, this would make a really good Reel Rumble.

Can't say I really liked either of these, but I'd take Mary S's Frankenstein over Bram S's Dracula by a pretty wide margin.

Bram Stoker is far superior even the stiff acting by some* is way better than Mary Shelly's Frankie.

In those quotes from Angry Video Game Nerd, he says: "I'm sick of it all! Morning sun, vanquish me!" and "What kind of codes are these?

Both are over the top and not nearly so faithful to their source materials as their titles and reputations would have you believe, but Dracula is just weird enough to actually work. Frankenstein is simply bad.

Not even close...Dracula is way better! And it has Tom Waits...which is always cool.

Thanks Satan they didn't make a "H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man" or something like that. Dracula is horrible, but it wasn't almost unbearable to watch. Frankenstein was almost unbearable.
