Trio of films based on classic horror films and novels. 'The Wolfman' (2009) is a remake of the 1941 horror film of the same name set in the 1880s. Benicio del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot, a gentleman tormented by the death of his mother and subsequent end of his childhood, who leaves home to try and rid himself of the memories and hurt. However, years later he is contacted by his brother's fiancee, Gwen Conliffe (Emily Blunt), who tells of how her love has gone missing, leading Talbot to return home in order to help with the search. Upon his arrival, however, he discovers that something horrifyingly strong with a seemingly unquenchable thirst for blood has been terrorising the villagers. With the death toll rising, a very suspicious Inspector Aberline (Hugo Weaving) from Scotland Yard is on the case. As he begins to uncover the truth, he hears about a curse that transforms the affected into a werewolf under the full moon... Kenneth Branagh stars in and directs 'Mary Shelley's Frankenstein' (1994), an adaptation of the classic horror yarn. Obsessed with creating life, Victor Frankenstein (Branagh) harnesses the power of electricity in order to reanimate the body of a once-dead criminal (Robert De Niro). When he then witnesses the abhorrence of this reborn creature, Frankenstein is appalled and quickly abandons it. However, the creature is aware of its origins and comes looking for revenge. 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' (1992) is Francis Ford Coppola's big budget version of the classic vampire novel. Victorian London provides the stalking ground for the lovelorn Transylvanian Prince Vlad (Gary Oldman), feeding off human blood as he seeks out the beautiful Mina (Winona Ryder), a reincarnation of his lost love Elisabeta. Mina is also courted by gentleman estate agent Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves), whose chum Doctor Van Helsing (Anthony Hopkins) wants to put an end to this vampire business once and for all.
