Plot: Count Dracula was a character created by Bram Stoker in 1897, and is the most famous vampire of all time. His biography varies with each appearance, but in all its adaptations, Dracula was always a Transylvanian count who became a vampire. At least until Gary Shore have gotten it. In his new incarnation, Count Dracula is not, nor is called Dracula. His name is Vlad, and he is the prince of Transylvania who struggle to keep the peace between his people and the Turks. Although moving away from the roots already established over the years, these changes allowed Shore to show a more human side of the character that we all learned to fear.
Unfortunately, this is one of the few positive things in the movie. Gary Shore despite explore well the story you want to tell us, there are parts of his achievement that do not work. There are certain scenes in the film that the director’s head could work at the same time showing us something new, but then the end result that is not so. You need to know how to separate what appears to be new visually what contributes in a positive way to the final product, and Shore do not know. Even so, there is no doubt that the film earns enough with all the visual surrounding the main character. Only it is not the Shore we have to congratulate but the artistic team.
