Not the utter failure it is almost unanimously sentenced to be, "Dracula" nevertheless feels somewhat stiff and seems to wiggle between parodying and retelling the story, often coming across as uninspired, or even restrained. Stylistically, tho, it is far more coherent than most of directors' late work, devoid of that annoying anything-goes humor, with a couple of mild but thought-through jokes.
I think it's pretty underrated. The cast is terrific and it has more laughs than other late period Brooks films. Not only is it funny, but it is a pretty faithful retelling of the Bram Stoker novel. It's fairly straightforward but unabashedly silly and has a great time parodying genre conventions which equals a great Brooks film for me.
