You're both crazy! Tod Browning for the win!
This was very good but is far from the classic of the Browning version. In particular the outsider nature of Van Helsing and Dracula in the story is utterly lost by the plainness of the accents. Although there is some incredible lighting design and some characters are better acted (Juan Harker in particular), the story falls flat. The allure added by Lugosi is utterly absent (as it is in the book). This version is best viewed as a curiosity piece.
I had no idea Steve Carell is so old! Anyway, Runar is right, Brownings Dracula is better.
