This movie was in production before Universal decided to build a cinematic universe. The producers caught wind of it just in time to independently add a present-day epilogue that Universal could use if they wanted to, but it was ultimately decided that Dracula Untold (2014) would not be the first entry in the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe.

The second time Vlad enters the cave, a tarantula can be seen. While creepy, that particular spider is a golden knee tarantula, native of the Chaco region in Argentina, South America. The action takes places in Eastern Europe. See more »

This movie is supposed to be entertaining, and because it succeeded in that regard as far as I am concerned, it's a very good movie.
This is the kind of movie you should watch with a glass of beer in your hand. Enjoy the story for what it is and drink your beer. If you approach this movie with an analytic mind, you're probably not going to enjoy it. The plot's got more holes in it than a Swiss cheese and it shouldn't be treated as a deep, psychological study of the human mind.
Who the heck has the patience for that?
Just enjoy it on a basic, emotional level and I'm sure you'll have a good time.
