A Very Confused Story
5 July 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Romania, four students (two Americans – Jeff Meyer (Paul Popowich) and his sister Alexa (Kam Heskin); one British – Justin (Nicholas Iron); and one Romanian – Linsey (Monica Davidescu)) are selected by Radescu (Brad Dourif), the dean of a local university, and his assistant Adrian (Billy Zane) for a research about the life of the prince Vlad (Francesco Quinn). Linsey has a powerful necklace that belonged to Vlad, which was stolen many years ago by a former relative of her from the grave of Vlad. She intends to return it to the tomb. Meanwhile, a society that worships Vlad wants to retrieve the necklace. While in their way to the castle of Vlad, the group meets Ilona (Iva Hasperger), a woman from the Middle Ages, who was brought to the present days by the power of the necklace. Later they fight against the evil Vlad. Although having wonderful locations, photography and soundtrack and a cast with beautiful women, this movie does not work well, having a very confused story. With some improvements in the screenplay, it would be a good movie. The director and writer could at least spare the viewers from such a corny end. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `Vlad – O Cavaleiro das Trevas' (`Vlad – The Knight of the Darkness')
