By Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 26, 2019 From The Stop Button

On one hand, with the Wojciech Kilar score, Bram Stoker?s Dracula can get away with just about anything. On the other, with Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves playing leads? well, it needs something to help it get away with anything. It helps neither Ryder or Reeves are the actual star of the film. Neith...

Facts about

When this film was re-released after the Production Code was strictly enforced in 1934, several deletions were ordered made to the soundtrack. The deletions include Renfield's scream as he is being killed and Dracula's moan as the stake is driven through his heart. These deletions have been restored.
There was no real musical soundtrack in the film because it was believed that, with sound being such a recent innovation in films, the audience would not accept hearing music in a scene if there was no explanation for it being there (e.g., the orchestra playing off camera when Dracula meets Mina at the theatre).
The spider webs in Dracula's castle were created by shooting rubber cement from a rotary gun.
