In this paper, the author compares the horror films "Dracula", "Bram Stoker's Dracula" and "Frankenstein" with the novels upon which they were based. He notes that a movie is an interpretation of a book and that at times the interpretation takes such liberties that a total re-creation or translation takes place. He also observes that films differ from the novels they are based upon because of different target audiences. This factor can lead to plot adjustments, thematic changes and the display of greater or lesser sympathy for the protagonist, depending upon the director's intentions.
