The Irish novelist, Bram Stoker, gave the world Dracula in 1897. This documentary explores the historical figure behind the fictional figure of horror and examines medical explanations for the myths of vampires.
Seven high-school friends begin their Euro-trip at the actual castle of Vlad the Impaler where he supposedly sold his soul to the devil over 500 years earlier, but the decrepit castle's past envelopes them in a bloody ritual.
It's raining outside when Jonathan finds Dracula's resting place. He disturbs the room full of bats and they fly out a window. The next shot is an exterior of the castle, and the bats fly out into a sunny day with blue skies. See more »
The Count Vladislav Tepes wants to leave wayward and superstitious Transylvania (and who wouldn't) and involves a wealthy soon to be married investment banker in getting him some new digs. All while sucking the local population dry of their life's blood. Woo hoo it's yet another tired adaptation of the classic Dracula mythology with their own personal slant.
This umpteenth millionth adaptation of the great Bram Stoker's Dracula gives the film a more modern slant with mixed results. The TV production does stall a bit here and there with the lack of atmosphere but it's not a complete loss. 2 of 5
