Dracula mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Dracula stamps the paper in the castle, in the wideshot, the wax seal is several centimetres away from his signature, but in the close-up, it is right next to his name. Also, his signature differs slightly between the two shots. (00:15:05)

Audio problem: When Holmwood has the gun pointed in Van Helsing's face in Lucy's crypt, Van Helsing explains about the undead. Switch to a shot behind Helsing and his jaw is still moving even though he has stopped speaking. (01:25:35)

Continuity mistake: When Dracula stabs the cross and blood pours out of it, in one shot it is slowly creeping towards Elisabeta's dead body, in another shot it is rushing past her, and in the next shot it's slowly creeping again. (00:05:20)

Continuity mistake: When Mina and Lucy are looking at erotic illustrations in the Arabian Nights book, in the wide shots of the girls holding the book, Mina's nails are cut short, but in the close-ups of her hands on the book, her nails are longer. (00:19:21)

Continuity mistake: When the men open Lucy's grave, Van Helsing's lamp and hammer, sitting on top of the stone lid, switch position between the shot of Van Helsing and the following shot from above. The same thing happens after they see the empty coffin. (01:21:20)

Kylantha

Continuity mistake: When Jonathan is dining in the castle, as Dracula says "That relationship was not entirely successful", Jonathan's knife is pointing upward and there is nothing on his fork. In the next shot, his knife is pointing downward and there's a piece of food on his fork. The food stays on the fork during the next few shots, until Dracula says "It is no laughing matter", and the fork is suddenly empty again. (00:13:55)

Kylantha

Audio problem: When Dracula and Mina first meet on the street they begin to speak. Dracula's voice has not been dubbed during the first five sentences. Then in mid stream his voice changes from a high pitched regular rehearsal voice to the heavily accented Romanian voice used throughout the rest of the picture. (00:45:20)

Visible crew/equipment: When Dracula is going to enter Lucy's bedroom for the last time, an unseen force knocks Cary Elwes backwards. Upon careful inspection, you can see a wire or cable pull him back. (01:19:30)

Continuity mistake: After Dracula pours wine for Jonathan, he sets down the carafe at the edge of the table, about a meter away on Dracula's left. In the next shot, it has moved much closer to him and is sitting on Dracula's right. In the wide shot where Dracula draws his sword, the carafe is back at the edge of the table. (00:13:30)

Kylantha

Continuity mistake: In the last scene, when Mina Harker lays Dracula's body in the cathedral's altar, she kisses the vampire's lips and he turns into his human self. His face is covered with blood down from his nose, but after the kiss Mina's lips have no sign of blood. (01:58:45)

Dracula: The blood is the life. And it shall be mine.
