This year marks the 25th anniversary of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Francis Ford Coppola's take on the classic vampire novel that showed the titular Count like never before (thanks to Gary Oldman's performance and Michèle Burke's bold makeup effects). Back in 2015, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released a 4K restoration of the 1992 film, and to celebrate its quarter-century anniversary this year, they'll unleash the movie on 4K Ultra HD.
