Bram Stoker’s Dracula screencaps

I first red Bram Stoker‘s Dracula when I was about 10 years old. At that time I lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil, though I read a British edition. I don’t remember if I ever made it to the end of the book. Then when I was 13-14 I read a new edition, this time a Brazilian one, in Portuguese.
I have always been connected to dark themes/art/history and science, since I can remember and always drawn towards the archetype of vampires – classic ones, of course. Yeapp, I was a weird kid…
I have also watched Francis Ford Coppola‘s feature film THEN, and nonetheless, in the recent years. I just “adore” how all the scenes turned out so picturesque, as classic paintings, in color tones and composition. The costume design is one of the benchmarks of the film, all too exquisite, original, eccentric.

You can indulge in some stills I found on Fanpop.comI hate such websites, but this time it was indeed quite useful…

 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It is like if the scenes were painted by Caravaggio, John William Waterhouse and Rembrandt.
