It may be noted however that certain scenes in the motion picture as the remarkable exchange of dialogues and the characterization of Dracula by Gary Oldman do depict concrete details the way it would vividly strike an imagination of a viewer reading the novel. The filmmaker might at such consideration have opted to preserve the essence of the visual attribute of Stoker's classical work knowing that it would almost always matter to the audience how Count Dracula is portrayed based on the firsthand knowledge of his fictitious existence. Regardless of modern advancements, Coppola has sought to keep the visual content and the value of antiquity intact in his presentation so as to capture and enhance the desired impact of the movie's subject despite the rest of modifications.
Moreover, the film includes visitation to the castle by R.M. Renfield before Jonathan Harker sets foot on Transylvania to make arrangements for Dracula in acquiring his real estate in London while in contrary, Stoker's novel possesses a different sequence of similar events. Unlike in the book, brides of Dracula in the film's context are overly sensual, exhibiting severe act of lasciviousness in seducing Jonathan after the Count's departure to England.
