WOW! That is the only way to describe this film. I left the theater as excited as I went in. I kept making the bat sounds and telling my wife, ” Babe, I’m turning into bats.” This film went from literally something I had never heard of (the film itself) to one of my favorites in the blink of an eye. Absolutely phenomenal! I’m not crazy about the cliff hanger in the end, but hey, it gives us something to look forward to.
The film is based on a Transylvanian Prince, Vlad The Impaler, and how he is trying to protect his kingdom from the invading Turkish army. However, with no standing army of his own, he will not be able to defend them at all. That’s where the Dracula portion comes into play. Without giving you any more than is provided on the trailers, he makes a deal with a vampire in hopes of being able to defeat the army.
Now anything else I could say would be a spoiler, and in my excitement I could end up spilling the beans. So I will end this here. I just wanted to express to you all, that you must watch this film! It is absolutely phenomenal! I never watch a movie more than once, definitely not in the theaters. This may be one of the few that I actually will watch again!
If you check it out, let us know what you think! But please, no spoilers!
