Meanwhile Andrea, being torn between her loyalty to her friends and to Philip, attempts to convince both sides to reconcile their differences. As expected, neither group wants to budge, with the Governor particularly underhanded in his methods of deception.

That being said, if you are looking for over the top, at times outrageous action sequences that are bundled together with explosions and plenty of traps, evil AIs and zombies, then you've come to the right place.

Bram Stoker's Dracula 1992

I say disturbing as this is the only Dracula movie I have watched where I was on Dracula's side. I wanted him to win. I wanted him to get the girl. This only goes to show what a superb depiction of the story this is.
