* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Dracula here is [[spoiler:Judas Iscariot]]. Was he ultimately a victim of fate and destiny?
* DracoInLeatherPants: Dracula. [[SarcasmMode Gee, wonder why?]] [[DontExplainTheJoke In case you're wondering]], it's because EvilIsSexy (being played by Creator/GerardButler helps), he's a [[VampiresAreSexGods vampire]], and he's a JerkassWoobie.
* FoeYay: Dracula and Mary.
* GuiltyPleasure: For some viewers, the movie's narm is charming in its own fun way.
* {{Narm}}: Between the awkward dialogue, the actors' performances (be it the DullSurprise or those who TookTheBadFilmSeriously), this movie has cheese written all over it. Though some would argue that [[NarmCharm it's part of the enjoyment]].
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: As if the title alone wasn't enough of a giveaway for the film's [[TurnOfTheMillennium time period]], Dracula's ''Film/{{Matrix}}''-inspired BadassLongcoat, the NuMetal soundtrack, and the ProductPlacement for Virgin Megastores (which has since pulled out of the US with the decline of record stores in general) all take what was intended as a modernization of the Dracula story and leave it feeling arguably more dated than [[Film/Dracula1931 a film that was made in 1931]].
