AwfulBy Gromit (44 reviews) from Canterbury , 30 Apr 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This film really put vampire epics to shame. It seems to throw out all of old ideas surrounding vampires and dracula and rewrite them for its own use. But not in a good way. This is no Blade and its certainly no Underworld. Its like a badly written glorified tv movie. The writers frequently show signs of laziness which will annoy even the most basic of vampire fans - for example justifying Dracula walking around in the daytime because its a bit cloudy!??!!! Seriously though this just takes away all of the fear of the night, which has been paramount to the dracula franchise since its first outing, leaving us with a boring damp squid of a film. The only fun you will have with it is spotting popular tv actors such as Jennifer Esposito (Spin City), Omar Epps (ER), Danny Masterson (That 70s Show), Jeri Ryan (Star Trek Voyager) and Nathan Fillion (Firefly). Don't get me wrong they're all great actors, but a big film needs a big lead and I'm afraid to say that the usually excellent Christopher Plummer and Jonny Lee Miller were simply not big enough to make this crap believable. Take my advice, leave this rubbish alone - you're better off with any of the Blade or Underworld series or if you haven't watched them Buffy series 1-7.

Eye Candy For AllBy Abnormal (93 reviews) , 25 Oct 2013Awesome film. The graphics aren't too bad and you really get into the story. Also for all the girls out there Gerard Butler is your eye candy and for the men there's still plenty for you with the vampire maidens.
Nice idea, only ok as a filmBy TechnoHippy (108 reviews) , 21 Jun 2013While far from a great film it does have a few saving graces, first is the story. It's an interesting take on the Dracula legend, I especially liked the origin. It's also fun to see a young Nathan Fillion and Jeri Ryan in action. Unfortunately those points aren't enough to turn this into a decent film. It's not a terrible film, but if you're after some vampire action then there are better films out there.
Bite me GerryBy a customer , 29 Apr 2013Not the worst film ever but not the greatest. Gerry is super hot in it as always and puts his all into the role, Jonny Lee Miller shouts his lines as always. I kind of get the feeling that there is a huge case of bad editing in this film though as it jumps so much and if you look at Youtube there seems to be an awful lot of scenes that never made it into the film but they would have made the film make more sense. Still i really enjoyed watching it.
Craven for bloodBy AndersonCouncil (5 reviews) , 13 Jan 2013In a seemingly endless stream of vampire flicks over the past 20 years, this one is actually not bad. There is the familiar Craven stamp on the film which means it doesn't take itself too seriously and let's face it, for the guys there are some hot women and for the girls there is Gerard and Jonny. Too many people watch this kind of film expecting it to match up to Coppola's classic with the great Gary Oldman. It's not nearly in the same league, but if you want an entertaining, fang filled fun, then don't think too much, just enjoy!

A different take on vampiresBy AddictedToFilms (7 reviews) , 04 Jan 2013I have watched an awful lot of vampire movies but this is the first time that I have ever seen this little twist thrown into the mix (near the end) but as you add up the pieces shown it makes a sort of sense. The film is well acted and includes the usual Dracula characters with a few new additions. This is a film I watch again every now and then so I would defiantly say it is worth a watch.
