Dracula (1992)

Factual error: When Professor Van Helsing is about to perform the blood transfusion on Lucy, he says, "I've only experimented. Landsteiner's method." However, Karl Landsteiner's method was about the ABO blood types, which Van Helsing knows nothing about (in keeping with the novel, the transfusion is carried out without any mention of compatible blood groups), and the first of Landsteiner's groundbreaking articles about the subject wasn't published until 1900, three years after the movie is set.

Dracula (1992)

Factual error: When the Demeter comes to London, there is a wide shot of the ship docking, with Hillingham sitting on top of a hill overlooking the city of London - you can see Big Ben, the House of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. However, when Mina opens Jonathan's letter earlier in the film, there is a close-up of the envelope and the address of Hillingham Estate is not London: It states that Hillingham is situated in Faversham, Kent, a town located approximately 50 English miles away from London.

Dracula (1992)

Factual error: When Lucy walks through the garden maze at night, her skirt blows up and you can see that she is wearing red modern underwear underneath. This can also be glimpsed in the scene where Dracula first enters her bedroom. Women of the Victorian era wore long loose drawers which extended below the knee. (00:41:40 - 00:58:30)
