  • It is five years after the events of Dracula II. Dracula (Rutger Hauer) has returned to Romania, taking Elizabeth Blaine (Diane Neal) with him. Father Uffizi (Jason Scott Lee) wishes to pursue, but the church has withdrawn its support. They are worried that he has become "tainted" following his last encounter with Dracula, and they want Uffizi to get out of the vampire business and take a position as pastor at a church of his choice. Uffizi's choice is to hand in his collar and pursue Dracula on his own. Armed with his weapons of choice—a scythe and a bullwhip—Uffizi heads for Bucharest, Luke (Jason London) in tow. Uffizi hopes to destroy and absolve Dracula; Luke hopes to find and rescue Liz, with whom he is in love. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Dracula III: Legacy is the third film in a trilogy of Dracula movies, preceded by Dracula 2000 (2000) (2000) and Dracula II: Ascension (2003) (2003). All three movies are based on screenplays written by American film-maker Joel Soisson and Canadian film-maker Patrick Lussier, who also directed the movie. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Not necessary but certainly advisable. It helps to know the history of how Uffizi, Luke, and Elizabeth got involved with the hunt for Dracula, to know how Uffizi was "tainted" at the end of Dracula II, and to know what Dracula is referring to when he reminds Luke about he was made to suffer at the hands of the experimenters.

  • She throws Luke probably for a variety of reasons. She doesn't want to attack him, but she is essentially addicted to the blood of her sister vampires, so she doesn't want to leave the castle, yet she's caught in this shameful place that's become her own personal hell and she sees no way out, even when Luke says he's there to save her. On the commentary, it's revealed that the studio thought they might want to kill Luke. This was where they were potentially going do that. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Bloodied but healing, Uffizi makes his way back to the castle and goes looking for Julia (Alexandra Wescourt) only to find her lying on the floor, bleeding from a stake in her abdomen. He pulls out the stake as Dracula shows up to taunt him. Just as Dracula is about to plunge a sword through Uffizi's heart, Liz shoots a flaming stake into Dracula's stomach. As Dracula looks at the stake in awe and pulls it out, Uffizi jumps him from behind and viciously bites his neck. He then takes the sword and beheads Dracula, who almost seems to be offering his neck for the final blow. As he swings, Uffizi says, "Consider yourself forgiven." Dracula destroyed, Liz silently takes the sword and walks over to Luke. Uffizi asks a dying Julia whether there is anything she wants to confess. "I've had impure thoughts about you," she admits. "As I have about you," Uffizi replies. Liz places the sword against her neck and says to Luke, "Please...," while in the other room, the dying Julia says to Uffizi, "...don't..." Elizabeth says to Luke, "...let me..." Liz and Julia say together, "die." Luke beheads Liz as Julia dies in Uffizi's arms. In the final scene, it is morning. Luke stumbles out of the castle and looks back for Uffizi. He does not come. Back in the castle, Uffizi sits on Dracula's throne, holding Julia in his arms. There is a bite on her neck, and she is "alive" again. A postscript appears reading, "The King Is Dead! Long Live The King!" Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Yes. In the alternate ending, Luke AND Ufizzi, carrying the body of Julia, leave Dracula's lair together. It is presumed that Elizabeth met the same fate (by Luke's hand) as before. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Gerard Butler played Dracula in Dracula 2000. He "died" at the end of the movie and was resurrected in Dracula II: Asension where he was played by Stephen Billington. Cardinal Siqueros (Roy Scheider) explained in the second movie that the being known as Dracula has appeared in many faces throughout history, including Judas Iscariot, Vlad the Impaler, Gilles de Rais and Caligula, among others. Each time the creature "dies" and is resurrected, his face changes. However, Dracula did not die at the end of the second movie, so Rutger Hauer is supposedly the same Dracula as he appeared in the second movie albeit aged and changed by his becoming a "couch potato" and mainlining blood.
