Trivia

(At around thirty-one minutes) Julia Hughes (Alexandra Wescourt), the television reporter, introduces her cameraman as "Tommy Tunnicliffe". The character's name in the cast list is Tommy, but he was played by Make-up Designer and Second Unit Director Gary J. Tunnicliffe. See more »

Goofs

(at around 53 mins) When Father Uffizi gets his whip back, he swings it over his head before hitting a vampire. While swinging, he hits a box that falls down. This is computer animated, which can be seen because the box falls a little before the 'whip' actually hits it. See more »

Quotes

Luke: Uffizi.
Father Uffizi: What?
Luke: You don't really look like an Uffizi. How did you get a name like that anyway?
Father Uffizi: Came with the job.
Luke: So, like if I get the same job, I get a cool name like that?

Passable straight-to-video horror
12 March 2006 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

After the events in "Ascension", Dracula returns to home sweet home Romania with the beautiful Elizabeth being one of his new bloodsucking brides. The country is torn apart by war, Dracuala's minions are everywhere and yet Father Uffizi and his comic relief sidekick Luke are determined to reach the vampire's castle and to destroy him once and for all. Uffizi has become so obsessed with his mission that he even stepped back as a priest. Patrick Lussier somewhat pleasantly surprised horror fans with his original "Dracula 2000", but why the hell did he ruin this by making two unrelated and entirely redundant sequels? "Legacy" has little to offer, apart from some nice gore and an ingenious sequence featuring circus-vampires on stilts. Admittedly, that was pretty cool to look at. The rest of the movie is an unexciting mess with bad acting performances and a severe lack of continuity. The set pieces and filming locations appear to nice, but the lousy camera-work and under-exposure makes it impossible to be sure. Throughout the whole movie, everybody is driveling about how almighty Dracula is, but when he finally makes an appearance (in the shape of B-movie veteran Rutger Hauer), he turns out to be a lame philosopher who prefers to plea instead of to kill. Yawn!
