Sony Movies brings you two spook-tacular horror classics this Halloween night from 9pm! Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves and Anthony Hopkins star in director Francis Ford Coppola’s visually stunning version of the classic Dracula story. Coppola returns to the original novel and creates an Oscar-winning, modern masterpiece. Count Dracula, a 15th-century prince, is condemned to live off the blood of the living for eternity. Young lawyer Jonathan Harker is sent to Dracula’s castle to finalise a land deal, but when the Count sees a photo of Harker’s fiancée, Mina, the spitting image of his dead wife, he imprisons him and sets off for London to track her down.
Then, Robert De Niro, Kenneth Branagh and Helena Bonham Carter star in Branagh’s adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein at 11.30pm. True to the terrifying original story, a young doctor’s obsession with death leads him to create a life. But his ‘creature’, crafted from the bodies of convicts and the brain of a brilliant scientist, is a hideous mockery of humanity. And when the creature realises he will never be accepted, and Frankenstein breaks a promise to create a mate for him, he seeks revenge.
