So stupid, 20 November 2009
Author: Kristine (kristinedrama14@msn.com) from Chicago, Illinois

During Halloween we have a lot of scary movies on TV, it's always a lot of fun because I love horror. It's an adventure and an escape from the real world. Dracula is one of my favorite stories because he's such an interesting character, he's the only real monster that has personality. Because he has this image of being human, he's charming and you can easily be memorized by his charm while underneath he's a monster that wants to drain your body of blood and make you into his slave. Bram Stoker, I wonder if he ever knew how much impact his story would have to this day. But then again, I wonder if he knew what kind of crud some Hollywood producer would do to his material like they did with Dracula's Guest.

Even though it was a bit confusing, I'll try to explain the plot as best as I can. Bram Stoker and his fiancée Elizabeth, cannot wait to get married. But after her father sees Bram putting his arm around her and kissing her forehead(which I suppose was 3rd base at the time), he thinks they are not ready for marriage and that they should wait for a year to see if their love will stay strong and real. Bram agrees to please her father but Elizabeth hates the idea and runs away. Bram has gone to secure the Carfax Abbey for Dracula. While Elizabeth is on her way to find him, she meets Dracula and he kidnaps her to his castle. He rapes her, trying to breed with her to restore his family that has been cursed by her father's wars. Bram finds out that she has been kidnapped and now is on an adventure to save his love from the cursed count.

The acting and casting is just awful. You can tell these are the actors that are dying to get their big break and stop waiting tables. Especially Kelsey McCann who plays Elizabeth, possibly the worst British accent, up there with Keanu Reeves, and also probably took acting lessons from him as well. Andrew Bryniarskin who I will never understand why he was cast as he looks like a former heavy metal band member from the 70's. Not to mention his talking with the fangs was just so funny. Dan Speaker who plays Elizabeth's father is just laughable as his material is so cliché. The only redeeming quality was Wes Ramsey who played Bram and seemed to take the role seriously and work with what he was given.

I don't know if it was just the material, the movie or the cast, but everything about this film was just not redeemable. I don't know what I was expecting, but this is very possibly the worst Dracula movie of all time. It's not even a movie that you could say it's so bad that it turns into good again, just trust me this movie is frustrating. The plot has a lot of flaws and the cast makes this movie into a reason to take more acting lessons.

1/10
