Bram Stoker's Dracula was one of the first classic vampire story and atmosphere was coupled with love and emotion to create an excellent adaptation of a classic.
The soundtrack to the film, composed by Wojciech Kilar manages to cover every aspect of the film from powerful and gargantuan themes of might to the more sinister and even aromatic music, complete with a contribution from Annie Lennox.
