Maybe we need virgin blood.
Didn't Elizabeth Bathory always bathe in virgin blood?
No, no. Because when my blood touched its skin, it reacted.
There goes the virgin theory.

After arriving at a morgue in New Orleans, an anatomy teacher and his students conduct a series of tests to see if it's really Dracula, but when the reborn Dracula begins turning them into vampires themselves, it's a race against time with a vampire hunter in tow to stop him.
This one wasn't all that bad and was a pleasant surprise. One of the more enjoyable elements here is the decent pace to it, which means that it pretty much stayed the same on an even pace and knew when to throw in an action sequence to keep it upbeat. That goes a long way, and it goes right from the opening scene chase through the old-town streets in a clever reversal of expectations that gives the film a great start while setting up one of the best mirror gags in the genre that gets a great jump along with the action, the revival in the bathtub at their house is handled well and is a disorienting and hyperactive sequence that leads nicely into the later battle with the police officers who arrive. It does tend to load up on action near the end, and the scenes there are it's best as the alleyway sequence is the clear highlight with a clever jump, impressive weaponry on display, a nice smattering of gore, and a great conclusion, their second revival attempt on the creature that leads into all the fine brawls and battles throughout the pool with the scores of vampires which really sets this one off into an incredibly fun final fight that brings plenty of historical significance from the flashbacks to settle this one off rather nicely. Along with some pretty nice gore in here and the clever use of more obscure vampire rules that offers a little creativity into the mix, there's very little to complain about in this one. Among the few problems here is that after an entertaining opening of the film, the middle section gets a little too slow for its own good. Most of this is relegated to the discovering sequences when the vampire is trapped and all of the experiments are being conducted where it's all the waiting around for results that get in the way of the truly exciting vampire story around it. There's not a whole lot wrong with them, it's just that they slow the film down when it should've just been let loose and really flew with abandon. Most of this is due to the fact that the main vampire, Dracula, is tied up and bound to a single position for the majority of the film, and only at the end is he actually freed. Not having its main source of horror there to do what it does best makes the middle largely hard to get through, with the only sparingly action scenes keeping it awake. That's really the only two complaints against this one.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Brief Nudity.
