This film was intended to be the start of a reboot of Universal Studio's "Monsters Universe" that was popular back in the 1930s and 1940s with films like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, The Mummy, and The Wolf Man. It was later revealed Dracula Untold would not be part of the reboot series. See more »
Vlad III was not known as Vlad the Impaler during his life, but was rather given the nickname posthumously. Therefore, he would never have been called this by anybody, as he is several times in this movie. See more »
What's going on with vampire movies? Was it 2011 or 2012 they made Abraham Lincoln, vampire killer? What next, Chairman Mao and the white army vampires? Or how about Aliens versus Predators versus Vampires? This is where education may be getting overrun by movies. They need to put a disclaimer in the beginning of these mutations so people don't think it's historically correct. Hell,just about every so-call "based on a true story" is incorrect so they probably should start doing it now. But I do like the variance into an alternate universe. It really allows your imagination to go wild. In this one, the acting was actually pretty good, very visual scenes and overall a fun movie to watch.
