da Wikipedia in italiano:

Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) è un agente immobiliare nominato dalla sua ditta per concludere un affare con il Conte Dracula (Gary Oldman), vampiro che secoli prima aveva combattutto come crociato per la Gloria di Dio, poi rinnegato (per abbracciare la fede satanica) dopo che a sua moglie, la principessa rumena Elisabetta, non furono concesse le onoranze funebri (poiché si suicidò quando ricevette, dai turchi sconfitti, la falsa notizia della morte del vampiro). Dracula, vissuto in solitudine per 4 secoli in un castello situato sulle montagne della Transilvania, quando vede un'immagine della fidanzata di Harker, Mina Murray (Winona Ryder), gli dice di scriverle, dicendole che si sarebbe trattenuto un altro mese. Il conte a quel punto imprigiona Harker nel suo castello, dove viene quasi ucciso dalle insaziabile mogli di Dracula, assetate di sangue. Imprigionato l'avvocato, il conte intraprende il viaggio per Londra dove ha intenzione di incontrare Mina, poiché crede che lei sia la reincarnazione della sua vera moglie.
Con l'avvicinarsi di Dracula a Londra, aumenta anche la sua influenza magica su Mina, riuscendo quasi a sedurla. Nel frattempo trasforma la migliore amica di Mina, Lucy Westenra (Sadie Frost) una delle aristocratiche più facoltose della città, in un vampiro; succhiando il sangue dell'aristocratica, Dracula riusciva a diventare più forte concludendo l'episodio con la morte della ragazza. Però incontra l'opposizione di Harker (che nel frattempo era riuscito a scappare), del Dott. Abraham Van Helsing (Anthony Hopkins), famoso dottore olandese che conosce la vera natura del conte e che utilizza diversi meccanismi per cercare di neutralizzare il mostro (tipo l'aglio, il crocifisso ecc.), il texano Quincey P. Morris (Bill Campbell) famoso per il suo modo di dare la caccia con coltellacci e fucili, il dott. Jack Seward (Richard E. Grant) allievo di Van Helsing e infine Lord Arthur Holmwood (Cary Elwes) che lotteranno per sconfiggere il vampiro. Esso verra ucciso insieme ad alcuni dei suoi servi umani alle porte del suo castello, il colpo di grazi aperò glielo infliggerà proprio Mina Murray che lo infilza con una spada e infine lo decapita.

qui in inglese sempre tratto da wikipedia:

The film begins in a prologue, detailing how Vlad III the Impaler defeated an "overwhelming" Turkish force invading his homeland in 1462 (see the Night Attack) only to return home to find his beloved wife Elisabeta (Ryder) dead, having committed suicide upon hearing the false reports of Vlad's death in battle. Dracula, a stout Christian, immediately flew into a rage upon being informed by priests that her soul is eternally damned as a suicide, and in a rage desecrates a chapel and renounces God, declaring he will rise from the grave to avenge her death with all the powers of darkness. The icons in the church cry blood, the candles drip it and the crucifix stabbed by Dracula bleeds it into a chalice, from which he drinks it, finalizing his promise.
Four centuries later, Jonathan Harker, an assistant real estate agent, travels to the mountains of Transylvania to arrange the transfer of Carfax Abbey in London, Count Dracula's (Oldman) newest real estate acquisition. Harker was sent because the previous agent, Renfield (Tom Waits) had returned from Transylvania insane. Upon arriving at the castle, Harker notices its bizarre, unnatural features, a place where shadows move by themselves and sometimes things (like drops of perfume) fall up. He also meets the equally bizarre Count Dracula, himself a wrinkled, pale old man in a brilliant red robe.
During the final signing of the real estate papers, the Count notices a picture of Harker's fiancée Wilhelmina "Mina" Murray (Ryder), whom the Count mentions bears a striking resemblance to his dead wife, Elisabeta. He tells Harker to write to her, telling her that Harker will remain in Transylvania for one month. Harker is surprised at the order but agrees to it, not wishing to fall out of favor with the wealthy and presumably powerful Count. After a period of time Dracula imprisons Harker, where he is enticed by Dracula's insatiable, beautiful, and bloodthirsty Brides. They systematically drink his blood, leaving him weak but alive, thus preventing him from escaping the castle.
While Harker is being held prisoner, the Count books passage on the ship Demeter to England. His purpose is not only to move into Carfax Abbey, but to meet Mina, who Dracula believes is the reincarnation of his wife.
When the Demeter arrives in London, the entire crew is dead. Since Dracula is in a box of his native earth and assumed to be cargo, he is delivered safely to the Abbey. Renfield becomes his servant. Mina's best friend Lucy Westenra (Sadie Frost) becomes his victim when she sleepwalks the night the Demeter arrives. Dracula ravishes her and drinks her blood. Dracula – now young and handsome again – gradually meets and charms Mina, but refuses to bite her. He also takes her dancing and when she drinks absinthe seems to begin remembering her past life.

Dracula's nocturnal feedings from Lucy have caused noticeable changes in her behavior and obvious deteriorating health. The three men who are courting for her hand, Quincey Morris (Bill Campbell), Dr. John Seward (Richard E. Grant) and Arthur Holmwood (Cary Elwes), grow increasingly worried. Seward (whose asylum includes among its inmates Renfield) summons his old friend Dr. Abraham Van Helsing (Hopkins). Van Helsing performs a blood transfusion with Arthur (Lucy's fiancee) then the other two men as donors. But he recognizes also that Lucy is the victim of a Vampire.
Harker escapes from Castle Dracula and makes his way to a convent from which he sends word to Mina. She leaves to join and marry him, leaving a note for her "Prince" (as Dracula had introduced himself) that she must never see him again. Grief-stricken and enraged, Dracula breaks into the Westenra house and kills Lucy, cursing her to be as he is; a blood-drinking monster, who must wander the Earth eternally seeking to satisfy an insatiable thirst.
But by now Van Helsing has learned precisely what is happening. He brings Arthur, Seward and Quincey to the family crypt where they see Lucy return to her tomb. She has fangs and a bloody mouth and seems to have been feeding off a small child. Horrified, Arthur drives a stake through her heart.

When Harker (now with gray hair from his ordeal) returns with Mina, he is recruited to hunt down Dracula. He joins Van Helsing, Seward, Quincey and Arthur in going to Carfax Abbey to consecrate the boxes of soil there, making it impossible for Dracula to use them. But the Count sees them. Taking the form of a green mist, he goes to Seward's asylum and kills Renfield for his betrayal, then enters the bedchamber where Mina sleeps. At first barely awake she eagerly welcomes him, but he insists upon telling her the truth – he is dead, a hunted creature, the one who murdered her friend Lucy. But despite her rage at this, Mina still loves him. She begs to become like him, to be with him. He at first tries to resist, but she insists. When the group of Vampire Hunters burst into the bedroom, they find Mina drinking Dracula's blood from his chest. Assuming the form of a bat-like demon, Dracula faces off against them. He insists he was betrayed by God. Then, proclaiming "She is my Bride!" he retreats into the shadows and transforms again into a horde of rats that flee out the window.

Mina begins to change the same way Lucy had. Van Helsing hypnotizes her and learns via the connection between her and Dracula that the latter is returning to his home by ship. The five Hunters plan on trying to reach the port of Varna before him via train. But Dracula reads Mina's mind and gives them the slip. Finally, they split up. Van Helsing and Mina go directly to the Borgo Pass and the Castle, while the others try to stop the Gypsies transporting Dracula.
At night, encamped before the castle, Mina begins to change as the Brides hover nearby. Mina attempts to seduce Van Helsing and almost succeeds. She bares fangs, trying to bite him but he reacts by touching her forehead with a piece of Holy Wafer. This sears her flesh and snaps her out of it. The Brides try to attack, but cannot get too close because of Van Helsing's cross. Instead, they devour the horses. Next morning, a weary Van Helsing enters the castle, finds the Brides and kills them, tossing their severed heads off the edge of the Castle's gate, into the abyss below.
When the chase between the Hunters and the Gypsies carrying Dracula nears the Castle, Mina finds she doesn't need binoculars to see things far away. Dracula, sensing her presence, tells her what to do. Speaking Romanian, she summons a kind of blue flame from the earth around the castle (first seen when Harker arrived) which rises to the clouds and causes winds. This impedes the Hunters, but they press on. As the fight rages, racing against sunset, the carriage carrying Dracula pulls into the courtyard.
The sun sets soon after the last Gypsy dies. Dracula bursts out of his box as Harker cuts open his throat. Almost at the same moment, a mortally wounded Quincey drives his bowie knife into Dracula's chest. The vampire staggers, but Mina fends off the men with a rifle. She asks her husband "When my time comes, will you do the same to me?" He says "No," and allows her to follow Dracula into the castle. Quincey dies.

Inside, in the very chapel where he renounced God, Dracula lies wounded. He is aged again, and his face contorted to that of a demon. But Mina tries to pull the knife from his heart, and calls him "My love," kissing him. At the moment, the candles in the chapel light on their own. The desecrations Dracula committed on the altar repair. Dracula himself becomes young and his face that of a human being. He says to her "Give me peace," and she drives the knife all the way through his heart. Dracula dies. Mina pulls out the knife and beheads him, then with tearful eyes looks up.
The dome above her shows a fresco of Vlad and his wife ascending to heaven together.

3) ti incollo inoltre quello di wikipedia:
The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward, who is greatly impressed by Dorian's physical beauty and becomes strongly infatuated with him, believing that his beauty is responsible for a new mode in his art. Talking in Basil's garden, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry's world view. Espousing a new kind of hedonism, Lord Henry suggests that the only thing worth pursuing in life is beauty, and the fulfilment of the senses. Realising that one day his beauty will fade, Dorian cries out, wishing that the portrait Basil has painted of him would age rather than himself. Dorian's wish is fulfilled, subsequently plunging him into a series of debauched acts. The portrait serves as a reminder of the effect each act has upon his soul, with each sin being displayed as a disfigurement of his form, or through a sign of aging.
The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered one of the last works of classic gothic horror fiction with a strong Faustian theme.[3] It deals with the artistic movement of the decadents, and homosexuality, both of which caused some controversy when the book was first published. However, in modern times, the book has been referred to as "one of the modern classics of Western literature."[4]
