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 »
Dark and gloomy terror/adventure/drama movie about a Prince called Vlad Tepes threatened by the Turks who becomes a vampire
Thrilling as well as frightening horror movie containing terrifying scenes , chills loads of gore and guts with a lot of C.G. effects . It is set in Transylvany , fifteenth-century , a new legend is born with a creepy Dracula to fight evil , a hero will turn to darkness .Everyone Bloodline has a beginning and an ending .It deals with a young prince called Vlad Tepes , Luke Evans , also named Vlad the Impaler. When Sultán Mehmet II , Dominic Cooper , who is executing the Vienna siege , demands one thousand children to become into Jenizaros for the Turkish Army , the prince Vlad has two choices , whether carry out this wrong order or to rebel against Turks . Vlad Tepes chooses the latter one , as he joins his officers and forms a feared army . Later on , Vlad reluctantly agrees with a monstrousing creature , Charles Dance , to vanquish the Turk enemy . As in order to achieve power to protect his wife , Sarah Gadon , child : Art Parkinson, and inhabitants his Kingdom , he turns an eerie creature of the night , becoming forever a doomed being .
Horror movie with violent fights , noisy action , impressive battles with extreme use of computer generator images and a few historical events about the Vienna siege by Sultan Mehmet II . This thrilling as well as terrifying movie packs horrifying scnes , chills , gore and breathtaking war scenes . It is not based on Bram Stoker 1897 classic novel of the same title and one of the biggest differences with original novel is that this Dracula recounting takes place entirely in a scary Transylvania , as Stoker's moves the action to England . This is a ghastly terror drama about sinister happenings with an interesting and engaging premise : Will Vlad Tepes lose his soul becoming a monster feared by his own people to save his wife , child and kingdom ¿ . It displays a shading and dark cinematography by John Schwartzman . As well as an evocative and moving musical score by Rami Djawadi of Game of Thrones . Being well and professionally made by Gary Shore, though it has some failures , gaps and excessive frames in 3D.
This one is one of the uncountable renditíon about this legendary personage , freely based on the Bram Stoker character , though here is more related to historic prince Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler . Other films retelling the known legend based as originally concerned on Stoker's novel are the following ones : Dracula by Terence Fisher with Christopher Lee , Peter Cushing and its sequels . Dracula by Dan Curtis with Jack Palance , Simon Ward , Nigel Davenport . Count Dracula by Jess Frank with Chistopher Lee , Herbert Lom , Soledad Miranda , Klaus Kinski . Bram Stoker's Dracula with David Suchet as Van Helsing , Marc Warren as Count Dracula and Sophia Miles as Lucy . Dracula 3D by Dario Argento with Thomas Ktretschmann , Rutger Hauer, Unax Ugalde, Marta Gastoni . The best results to be Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula with Gary Oldman , Winona Ryder , Anthony Hopkins , Gary Elwes, Keanu Reeves .
