    Lot of close-ups for a limited stage, probably within budget
    constraints, over as many as six actors set on given recreatively the Victorian milieux, filmed from a few stuffy rooms in stiffed costumes.
    All English actors/production efforts, I should think. Van Helsing
    is not Stoker, not an integral while convalescing from whatever it was
    that crawled inside when writing Dracula. Both Lucy, to assume more
    so Helsing, are incidental although not to degrade overall the plot's development. Focusing, however, exclusively upon the two thus turns
    into an abridgement, a modern construct, for Helsing in an efficacy to
    run a harrowing dialogue given Lucy, supportively, at her thing, as
    the attractively alluring femme fatale, in Freudian terms, with teeth figuratively where they're not usually to be expected;- Yes, one of
    the male actors is bitten quite severely on the neck. How precisely
    Helsing proposed the Unholy Undead might have arrived at that
    junction, I really couldn't be bothered to listen.

    Only recently encountering Nosferatu – Phantom der Nacht (Herzog) --
    maybe a year ago, the German brook Jonathan follows into a sense of
    mountainous heights leading to the enclave of Dracula's realm, which
    was enchanting. I'd rather watch Herzog again, Isabelle Adjani rather
    than Helsing envelope to pull back Klaus Kinski, no thought to
    four-inch fingernail foreplay as before, again but straightaway into
    her neck as she cradles him acquiescently in the crux of an ascending
    sun bestowed upon him his consuming passion.

    Should be but one review on IMDB for those less faint of heart able to withstand the lack of a fastforward with words of some volume.

    No budget? Lucky it's cheap to film in Eastern Europe, where at the least the legend was set.
    Or did they film it in London?

    Film what?

    Austria's country is where Herzog worked from authentic gypsies,
    interned and desiccated shrunken mummies, a unique spirit of
    high-country mountains and brook;- some country estate with a little
    history for probably Dracula's den, for the most candles for night
    inside, leaving a couple beach shots next to whatever else is the city
    the rest comprises (latter third of the film takes, e.g. infected
    Jonathan reduced to gibbering gerbil and Isabelle Adjan carrying the
    juice to Lucy's shift in lead.)

    This one is some evocatively Victorian wall hangings, maybe a couple
    weekend rental rooms from the Motel 6, at least one with a balcony for
    Count to hang from a wall out between scenes. (I took a couple peeks
    through my fingers while mostly skipping through the rest -- hardly to
    say watched -- apart low budget, which should be substantiated.)
