This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Jonathan's employer, Peter Hawkins, is shown to be a good-hearted man particularly fond of him and Mina, and leaves them a chunk of his goods upon his death. Hawkins is shown as an unscrupulous man who has no problem sending Harker to Romania despite being aware of the danger it will pose for him.
   Dracula as an old man bears some resemblance to Vlad the Impaler, but no clear parallels are drawn between them. Van Helsing believes that Dracula is Vlad the Impaler, and that he has lived for an impossibly long time after becoming a vampire.
   Van Helsing deduces that Dracula's three vampire brides were merely innocent village girls and Dracula's victims when he sees the peaceful expressions they make after he kills them. No inference is shown to be made by van Helsing when he kills the vampire brides.
   Jonathan Harker escapes Dracula's castle just after Dracula departs for England, and is never directly attacked by the vampire brides. Jonathan Harker is kept captive in the castle for a long time after Dracula leaves for England, with the vampire brides periodically drinking his blood before he finally escapes.
   Lucy Westenra is shown to be a typically prim and proper young lady, even more innocent than Mina. Lucy is portrayed as a perverted, sexually voracious young woman.
