Directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring an A-list 90s cast engaging in some highly variable accent work, Bram Stoker's Dracula is one of the most loyal screen adaptations ever made of the classic horror novel. As our Vampire season continues, we debate how successful the page-to-screen transition really is and attempt to pitch some sacrilegious sequels...
Tune in to hear our thoughts on Keanu Reeves wooden acting, why Gary Oldman is the perfect choice to play the flamboyant prince of darkness, Anthony Hopkins hilariously poor bedside manner as the Vampire hunter Van Helsing, plus drinking games, listener pitches and more...
Every week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a look back at a classic standalone movie and attempt to pitch fantasy sequel, prequel or spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. As it's October, we're currently engaging in our annual Halloween mini-season. This time around, we're focusing on movies about Vampires, from classic horror to modern comedy.
