Silly but fun update of the Bram Stoker classic that has Van Helsing (Christopher Plummer) chasing the famous bloodsucker through the modern streets of New York. Some scenes are pretty scary, but the film is dampened by the ineffective performance of  in the lead as the least scary Dracula since Leslie Nielsen, and some lead-heavy pacing by the director that extends the film’s first third way beyond what is necessary.   is stunning in a supporting role, and Plummer is appropriately hammy for this low-grade horror pic.
