* DeathByAdaptation: The gypsies. In the book, most (if not all) survive the fight with Jonathan, Arthur, Seward and Quincey, fleeing when Dracula is killed. Here, half are killed in a chase to Dracula's castle and the rest cut down in a fight in the courtyard.

* WallCrawl: Dracula does this in the iconic scene of Harker spotting him crawling up a castle wall. One of Dracula's brides also does this when the Count stops them from feeding on Harker and flings one of them to a wall.

Added DiffLines:
* AllForNothing: Dracula's FaithHeelTurn and subsequent vampirism stem from bitterness over not only losing Elisabeta (to suicide), but also seemingly being denied the chance to be TogetherInDeath with her (as his beliefs state that suicide is too mortal of a sin). But as the ending shows, [[spoiler:she ends up in Heaven after all (disproving that whole SuicideIsShameful business with her), and he's apparently pulled enough of a RedemptionEqualsDeath to be allowed to rejoin her, meaning that all of his evil actions have been pointless all along.]]

Added DiffLines:
** The belief that this trope would be subverted was the whole reason for Dracula's FaithHeelTurn in the first place.

** The film may not be faithful to the original story but it is faithful to the style of the book, in presenting the different epistolary viewpoints on screen and bringing a Dracula closer to the Stoker original than many prior adaptations, most of which were [[LostInImitation closer to the Lugosi movie and the play that it was based on]].)
