I watched this last night in bed and with it being a TV production I wasn't expecting much but I was surprised at how good it was.
I got this in a box set called BOX OF BLOOD in which Anchor Bay have done a marvelous job with. The front of the box as what is meant to be blood swishing to which side you hold it and inside it contains 1 documentary and 5 films: In Search Of The Real Dracula (Documentary), Dracula, Near Dark, Nosferatu: The Vampyre, Vampires: Out For Blood & Vampyres: Daughters Of Dracula.
Now back to the review of Dracula, it's a modern version of the story of Dracula with cars and mobile phones in it but this isn't as bad as it sounds and brings something fresh to the story.
Headed by brash young American investment banker Jonathan Harker and his fiancee Mina, a group of young adventurers are seeking new opportunities in Budapest. When the mysterious Count Tepes summons Jonathan to his castle in Romania for an important deal, little does the banker know what horror he is about to unleash on the world. Tepes is none other then Dracula, and he wants more than blood: he wants the souls of these vigorous young people. The only way they can prevent him from creating an army of undead is by probing into their own souls and accepting to sacrifice themselves for the good of humanity. But Dracula, a master of seduction and sensuality, knows exactly how to make people yield to his will.
With this being in a box set the version I have has no special features and the rating for this film is a 12 so there isn't much blood or violence in it and I can say there didn't need to be much because it still told the story well enough and if you have already seen countless other Dracula/vampire films then this needs to be another added to that list.
All in all a good film for a TV production that deserves to be seen by Dracula/vampires film fans.
