Storyline

Dracula, having assumed the persona of rich, innovative American entrepreneur Alexander Grayson, makes a dashing entry in Victorian London's high society with a grand ball in his splendidly palatial mansion. Except for people with conflicting business interests, everyone is openly impressed by his demonstration of a revolutionary light-bulb with wireless power. Yet his backers, a secret vampires society, scold his excessive wooing of socialite Mina Murray, the spitting image of his late beloved Ilona, and fiancée of journalist Jonathan Harker, whom he grants an exclusive interview. Indeed, the equally secret order of the dragon already declared war on him, unleashing the Prussian sword-master Hermann Kruger. Written by KGF Vissers

Surprisingly puzzling!! Makes you watch more
25 October 2013 | by (Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

Well, without watching the first episode some people might think of this as the typical evil vampire plot in which Drácula is biting everyone around him like crazy. Let me tell you this: The average Drácula can't be any farther from the way he's portrayed here.

The plot is very cleverly opened for many twists in the future due to its interwoven style.The cinematography,costume,and production in general are flawless. As far as the acting goes,it does what it's intended for most of the performers. Although some actors like the one interpreting Drácula himself do a remarkable job. His acting shows some sort of darkness behind and romantic feel at the same time. The latter fits perfectly the story plot.

Some sex,romance,drama and horror are all mixed together to make you watch the entire episode and ask for more!!!
