One thing that can be said confidently is that there has never been any shortage of Dracula themed movies. Even after Hammer Horror were laid to rest we got wall to wall films cashing in on the popularity of the worlds favorite Transylvanian.
This is one of those efforts that presents him as almost an anti-hero, forced into the darkness through anger at the loss of his true love.
Trouble is this one simply isn't very good, it's a combination of classic mythology and modern nonsense that simply doesn't work.
It looks shoddy, it sounds poor and poor Jon Voight looks very out of place.
With a blonde dracula, practically no bites/blood/vamperic action and more Christian references than a priest could shake his tallywacker at this is a poor piece of Dracula cinema.
A few decent designs here and there
Far too much christianity
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Jon Voight must have lost a bet
