HOLLYWOOD -- Director Francis Ford Coppola wants to make it quite clear that his Dracula movie is unlike any other Dracula movie. He's calling it "Bram Stoker's Dracula," and claims it is the only film version that offers the complete story from the 1897 Stoker novel of the vampire count, which has been made into scores of movies through the years.Coppola's film, which is finishing up shooting on the Columbia lot, stars Gary Oldman as Count Dracula, Winona Ryder as Mina and Anthony Hopkins as Van Helsing in a particularly erotic telling of the Dracula legend.

Bing and Bob. Butch and The Kid. Holmes and Watson. Dracula and Van Helsing. They're all famous pop culture pairings that have survived the ages, but only that last duo has the scent of the supernatural about it. In a saga that has caused flaps during three centuries, usually the vampire gets top billing. But now the vampire slayer stars in his own film - Van Helsing, which opens tomorrow - proving that the Dr. Watson of the Undead deserves another look. Because without Abraham Van Helsing, Dracula would be just another fanged footnote in horror history.

The vampire sets about seducing the sanitarium owner's daughter, and she seduces her suitor to learn his secrets.

"Bram Stoker: A Biography of the Author of Dracula," by Barbara Belford, Knopf, 384 pages, $30 For nearly 100 years, the world has assumed that Bram Stoker's "Dracula" is merely an escapist work of supernatural lust and violence, but Barbara Belford's biography of Stoker completely alters our understanding of the classic tale. Her extensive research in archives on both sides of the Atlantic has opened up a fascinating autobiographical dimension to the book, one that helps to explain not only the powerful appeal of the nocturnal Count but also the strange character of his creator.
