Adaptation of the popular novel by Bram Stoker. The future seems full of promise for 20-something aristocrat Arthur (Dan Stevens). He has the world at his feet and is about to marry the love of his life Lucy (Sophia Myles). But all that comes crashing down when he learns that he's inherited an horrific and highly contagious disease. His desperation to cheat death is set to bring destruction to all those around him - including his new wife - as he becomes embroiled with a sinister blood cult who lure him with the false promise of curing his disease. Arthur unwittingly sends innocent young lawyer Harker (Rafe Spall) to meet the fatally charismatic Count Dracula (Marc Warren).
