Might Have Been an Entertaining Movie with Improvements
5 April 2014 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

In the Sixteenth Century, a group of warriors are vanquished by Wrath (Vasilescu Valentin) and other demons in Romania. The teenagers Alina (Kelly Wenham) and her sister Esme (Holly Earl) flee with a box, but they are surprised the a group of thieves commanded by the young Lucian (Ben Robson) that wants the box. They disclose that inside the box there is the Lightbringer, the only weapon capable to kill Dracula (Luke Roberts). Soon the vampire hunter Leonardo Van Helsing (Jon Voight) comes to the camping of the thieves and when he is explaining the power of the Lightbringer, Wrath returns with the creatures and attack the group. They are defeated but Wrath kidnaps Aline and brings her to Dracula in his invisible castle. Her resemblance with Dracula's bride that was killed by traitors one century ago makes him believe that she is her reincarnation. Now Dracula wants to seduce Alina and he asks his assistant Renfield (Stephen Hogan) to take care of Alina. Meanwhile Van Helsing and Esme team up with Lucian and the hunter Andros (Richard Ashton) that seeks out Dracula to revenge the death of his sister Demetria (Poppy Corby-Tuech) and the unlikable group heads to the castle using a compass in the Lightbringer to rescue Alina from the vampire.

"Dracula: The Dark Prince" might have been an entertaining movie with improvements. Dracula blonde is ridiculous; the decrepit Jon Voight is annoying and also pathetic in the role of a vampire hunter. The two "Xenas" protecting the valuable box is also terrible. The modern haircut of Lucian is laughable. The female vampires in Dracula's harem seem to be in a fashion parade or beer advertisement. But the movie is watchable and makes laugh. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Drácula - O Príncipe das Trevas" ("Dracula - The Dark Prince")
