not a brainless teenage horror movie
12 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This one kept my attention and is based more on the actual Vlad Tepes (Dracula) rather than Bram Stoker's version of the 15th century Prince. The movie is set in present day. Four graduate students venture to the Carpathian mountains of Romania to conduct research on the historical Vlad, one of them bears a necklace that Vlad was buried in. The group begins a two day 50 mile hiking trek through forests and mountains to a little known and inaccessible set of crumbling ruins at Poenari, a fortress built by the historical Vlad Tepes. The artifact, a 15th century necklace, brings Vlad back from the past along with several frightening experiences and inner visions. The acting is good and the movie is filmed on location in Romania where Vlad actually existed. Vlad is both historically accurate and a horror fantasy and is not your typical mindless horror film. This one is worth seeing and the musical score by Christopher Fields is fabulous.
