This paper will shed light on the reasons why three modern adaptations, namely Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), Dracula 2000 (2000) and the BBC Dracula (2006), use historiographic metafiction and why they differ so much from the original novel with regard to narrative, themes and the characterisation, whereas two classic adaptations stay much closer to the novel in this regard. These particular discrepancies have sprung from the requirements and interests of modern filmography, literature and society.
