Dracula: Pages From a Virgin's Diary

Genre: Horror, Musical; Starring: Tara Birtwhistle, Zhang Wei-Qiang; Director: Guy Maddin; Author: Mark Godden; Runtime (in minutes): 75; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: Zeitgeist Films

The Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin is a modern rhapsodist of the silent-movie age. Here, however, he creates a facsimile of the herky-jerky gothic style of Nosferatu, only to wrap these gorgeous atmospherics around…a ballet film. The result is a feature-length antique-bloodsucker video, one that takes hold neither as dance nor as silent horror dream.
