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.
   In the book, Dracula forces Mina to drink his blood, much to her horror. In the film, Dracula leaves the choice of whether or not Mina should drink his blood up to Mina herself, and Mina decides to drink his blood anyway, even though Dracula tells her that he loves her too much to condemn her to be what he himself is.

   Renfield's insanity is never explained and is not related to Harker in any way. Renfield is shown to be Harker's predecessor and it's implied that his experience at Dracula's castle drove him insane.
   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.
