Francis Ford Coppola explains the Old Hollywood magic of Gary Oldman's shadow in Dracula

by Jeff Labrecque • @JeffLabrecque

The last great epic that Francis Ford Coppola directed was Bram Stoker’s Dracula in 1992. Gary Oldman played the creepy Count and Winona Ryder was the English beauty who fell under his spell. It was as much a romance as a horror film, but Coppola was mostly loyal to Stoker’s 1897 Gothic novel, and determined to make the film look and feel like an Old Hollywood monster movie, with practical, old-fashioned effects.

Take, for example, the Count’s shadow. In the film, Keanu Reeves’ lawyer travels to Dracula castle on business. When the nocturnal host appears, his shadow has a mind of its own, imitating its master’s motions only slightly and often revealing his true intentions. In an exclusive interview from a new Blu-ray, Coppola explains how a “shadow wrangler” mimed Oldman’s actions from watching on a video screen. Coppola chuckles a bit, since the shadow may have been expected to do a more precise job, but the effect of the imperfections added a surreal and warping chill to the character.

A new restored version of Coppola’s Dracula arrives on Blu-ray and Digital HD on Oct. 6. It’s the first of the Supreme Cinema Series, a new collection of “Clear Case” limited-edition discs from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Vampires poke around social media in exclusive 'Shadows' deleted scene

By Brian Truitt

What Spinal Tap did for dim heavy-metal rockers, What We Do in the Shadows (on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday) does for the bloodsucking contingent. Written and directed by stars Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords fame) the mockumentary follows vampire flatmates in New Zealand and how they get by in the world — in the case of Clement’s ornery Vladislav, that means 862 years of rockin’ it fang style. Like everyone, they have to get up to speed for modern times, and Vlad learns about social media from their human computer-programming guy Stu (Stu Rutherford) in this exclusive deleted scene from the horror comedy. There’s a woman named Caroline who is Vlad’s friend on Facebook who’s not really his friend per se — we’ve all been there, Vladster! — and he decides to “poke” her though he’s a little irked at what she might do in return.

Non-Spoilery Review of Dracula Untold
by Margot Le Faye (margotlefaye)

Ignore the critics. They obviously do not get the genre. Dracula Untold is a visually stunning, perfectly balanced mix of historical drama, action film, and romance. I loved that they wove historical events from the real life of Vlad Tepes (obviously fictionalized/mythologized) with the legendary elements we have all come to know and love. We get a great origin story with a vital, passionate, strong warrior prince, and a lot of very cogent reasons for him to become what he does. Loved it. Hope they do more.
