Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself.
Though not based on the original series, this fan-made tie-in to the reboot lords of shadow is spectacular.
(THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS SPOILERS TO THE CASTLEVANIA LORDS OF SHADOW STORY, YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED)
The story follows the early years of Simon Belmont whose grandfather, Gabriel Belmont, AKA prince of darkness Dracula himself, has risen to full power.
The series is visually stunning for a fan, made series and the cast is even more so, though the story is a bit lacking being fan made and all, it's still good. Just don't expect for everything to be accurate to Lords of Shadow.
Running in about a full hour you could watch this and have time to play all the Lords of Shadow games. So why not, play the games, watch the series, then go back to trying to get all the Symphony of the Night clones out of the way.
