As the title of my review infers this movie is an Asylum special. If you are unaware of Asylum they are the people who make the rip offs of big budget movies for Video chains. For example I am legend with Will Smith becomes I am Omega with Mark Dacascos. Transformers : Transmorphers. War of the Worlds : H.G. Wells War of the Worlds and my personal favourite is 28 days later and 28 weeks later : 48 weeks later. The list goes on, but back to the review. I caught this movie on the horror channel so at least i didn't waste my money. The movie covers a basic plot that gets covered in so many sub plots to cover how basic the main plot is you just stop caring before the final twist you guessed fifteen minutes in. The main actors are solid D list actors let down by supporting actors who cant deliver their lines. Of particular interest is the the vampire clan leaders who fall into three catagories. 1 your basic normal Blade style Vampire, 2 The Nosferatu Vampire and best of all 3 The Buffy Vampire (same face make up and all) in fact the best part of this movie is the trailer thought it does have some good points if you switch your brain off.

4.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST FROM ASYLUM 18 Nov. 2009
By fmwaalex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
DRACULA'S CURSE

I love low budget movies and seem to have a soft spot for a little company called "The Asylum". Don't know why don't I continue to buy their films even though lately most have been, not so good. But when this one first came out I had high hopes since I am a huge vampire fan. Luckily for me this is indeed one of their better ones, at least on some things. I viewed this recently and then again with the commentary and had a great time doing so. The thing about the Asylum is that they get a bad rep for doing the mockbusters, but they do original work as well. Some films they do are good others not so much but I have a good time with em.

A group of vampire hunters are killing the creatures off one group at a time and seem to be doing a good job at it. They are doing so well in fact that the vampires call for a meeting with this group of skilled assassins. It seems they want to renew an old treaty that Dracula once struck with Van Hellsing and all humans. As time went by and Dracula vanished the treaty fell apart but now they want to put it back on here in present day. The leader of the humans thinks this is the best move for both sides and agrees to the terms. Needless to say his team does not agree but they follow suit. But there is a new group of vampires in town lead by a vicious female vampire who starts taking out both sides. So now human and vampire must come together to stop her and her girls.

Writer/director Leigh Scott I think did a great job on an obviously very low budget, the story in particular. The storyline for this film is extremely entertaining and meshes different vampire myths together with ease. I like the way that all the different kinds of vampires from different myths and stories and films were all together in this. I also liked the way it was explained in how and why they are like that. Add in that for the most part the creature effects are on point and you have a really fun flick. Sure some things need work obviously but on the budget I am sure they did the best they could.

The ending as well is very interesting in this film and kinda took me by surprise but it made perfect sense if you were paying attention the whole time. The characters are many and can be a problem at times but for the most part the characters are interesting [even when the actors are not]. From sexy vampires to the classic Nosferatu to the monster looking ones all are here, very nice blend of them all and in a mafia style to like the "Underworld" films. The acting at times though is kinda weak and the dialogue could be better but over all a good time on the coach. The commentary is good with cast and crew alike talking about the film, and some behind the scenes and blooper reels are included.

This was a good release from the Asylum and when compared to other films released by this company this is with out a doubt one of the best.

This movie goes in the garage sale pile. The movie was the second worse movie that I have ever seen. The package looked great, but the movie was just plain terrible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 18 Aug. 2008
By Carlos Moreno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This was a total disappointment. Acting is really bad and laughable because of it. These people do not act and look ridiculous when they talk, move or a simple thing like standing still looks awful on screen aaagggh. I hated it even though I tried hard to like it, since the visual effects are more or less acceptable and that's about it. Avoid this movie like a plague it is bad and boring too much talking and no action, horror, passion, blood, nothing!!! Or at least nothing that can be believed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Curses suck more than blood 22 Sept. 2012
By Jake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Ending the round of vamp week for me and I get a Dracula movie? Will it surpass Coppola's interpretation? Nay good and naïve soul but thank you for asking. So sharpen those stakes, give your actors/actresses no weapons training and try not to giggle throughout the film. This is Bram Stoker's Dracula's Curse.

Spoilers can heal almost any wound after feeding...

Master of the Mockbuster (films that have been released a month prior that are similar to whatever blockbuster set to come out) Leigh Scott (King of the Lost World, Frankestein Reborn and Transmorphers) sets out to fondle Stoker's masterpiece in ways it does not want to be. Show us on the doll where Scott touched you movie. Our movie opens with a prologue of vampire hunters with as much training a Hollywood extra, our elite hunters proceed to fend off vampires with less ability of Cordelia Chase rather than Buffy. Serious, was there nothing in the budget for a month of hand-to-hand training and a little firearms safety? Right off the bat (pun intended) that this story is not within the monetary they were given. In accordance to this film a pact was created between Abraham Van Helsing and Count Dracula to cease attacking one another. Now is the time for renewal of this pact. 5 years have passed and the Countess Ezabet Bathorly (Christina Rosenberg of Slaughter Party, Wolfpeople, The Telling and Shattered Lives) feels the pact is for weak willed and minded fools. Proceeding to send her minions out to feed on humans that have no physical or mental abnormalities called the pure bloods. Colonel Rufus King (Thomas Downey of King of the Lost World, The Beast of Bray Road, and Frankenstein Reborn) is made aware of the pact being broken and the rest of the vampire clans claim they are too weak to stop the countess and suggest King takes care of it himself.
Okay this production value is reminding me of Dark Shadows in the sixties, as it the effects, not the sets. The plot is so slow a pace I could be still cooking eggs by it. There is not an ounce of charisma amongst the male cast and frankly the women are portrayed as one-dimensional and a bit on the vapid. Vamps apparently bleed some sort of paintball green substance that is not blood. Yes menfolk there are boobies so relax. Some are bought and some are real.

Ideally if you want to watch this film just don't tell your loved ones you purposely watched it. Tell them a cadre of psychos broke in your house and forced to partake in this film under gun point and duress. It sounds better than, "I was bored and it might be something good to watch." I started snickering when I read this was shot mostly in Chatsworth California. Most of the adult entertainment; these days are also shot in that particular town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a cool movie! 20 Jun. 2006
By Dr. Van Helsing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I wasn't expecting much out of this low budget vampire flick, but half way through I forgot that I wasn't watching a big studio movie. Cool characters that were well acted, fight scenes where you can actually see what is happening, and great looking monster effects combine to make a film definitely worth watching. This movie has more plot and character development than the last ten Hollywood blockbusters I've seen combined. Definitely worth a look.
