May contain spoilers: Not the worst vampire flick
on 22 April 2017
The acting is teenage and the obligatory Catholic imagery and symbolism are transparent and not very imaginative. The turn-of-the-millenium angle makes this instantly dated, as does the relentless product placement. The cast is packed with stars, but all the characters are flat as Kansas, no offense, and the story ultimately goes nowhere. And yet, this movie takes itself way too seriously. The twist ending was great, but ultimately isn't enough to redeem this movie, especially as the only character of the bunch who could have carried this storyline is killed off too early to make a difference. Dracula 2001 is delicious eye candy, but not first pick if you're looking, no pun intended, for something with substance, because you won't find it here.
