The title rings a bell but I've never read it. The again, I've never read the original either.

You should, it's a good novel. I did Gothic fiction for my English A-Level so I read it and found it to be much better than the novels we were actually studying

I was just surprised at how many oppurtunities the filmmakers passed by when making Dracula movies. It's already very cinematic on paper, or at least the early portion is(haven't finished it yet).

Well, the Frankenstein movies aren't very faithful either. Dunno why

Well, the one with Robert de Niro covered pretty much all - or at least most - of the novel. Through I prefer the manga adaptation by Junji Itou (yes, that's a thing) because the monster actually fucking looks like one.

The reason why most movies aren't faithful is the same reason why most Dracula movies aren't exactly, either: Mainstream audience are more familiar with the early movie adaptations than they are with the actual source material.

I think an authentic adaptation might just best work as a mini-series. That way you can better focus on the various different chapters while not having the audience wait so long for the continuation.

But it's a vicious cycle. The early movie adaptations weren't very faithful to begin with

This isn't intended to be a parody, but it's so far to the left it may as well be.
With her Harry Potter series of books and later movies, British author J. K. Rowling has obviously struck a chord in the psyche of white audiences. Despite her work being throughly saturated with social justice messaging, the fundamental premises of the story are an expression of more traditional, “elitist,” and even “racist” attitudes which white populations continue to hold on some level. Try as she might, Rowling could not avoid expressing these views. This is obvious in the nature of Hogwarts and the wizarding world, as well as the various races within it.
Hogwarts is not open to everyone, but neither does it require an application. Although the Death Eaters’ desire to accept only those they consider to have purely magical bloodlines is portrayed as an ugly part of their villainous character, admission is offered based on magical ability, which is an essentially genetic trait. Although it is not guaranteed to everyone whose parents possess it, it is something which people either do or do not have, regardless of any conscious effort on their part. No attempt is made to draw representative samples of the general population as with affirmative action; the school is exclusive to a genetic elite.
Throw this and the other magical paragraphs back in her big month every time she decides to have her monthly white woman feminist period.
...and still: Spoony did nothing.
