No. Well, actually I saw about 20 minutes, got up a left the theater. So, I'm a bad choice to discuss thjis with.

But I thought I'd tweak the timeliness of this thread (ie., bump) so maybe you'd get real answers instead of mine.

Another non-answer here, I thought I'd mention that the original 1922 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nosferatu%2C_eine_Symphonie_des_Grauens" [Broken] is pretty cool if you're into silent movies.

Whenever I think of Dracula, I think of him, I can't imagine any other Dracula.

Although Johhny Depp would make a good Dracula.

Johnny Depp should have some role that just combines all of the intimidating and/or scary characters he's played. Jack SweeneyScissorHandsWonka or something.
