All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Dracula, Season 1 (2013)

Starring: Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Thomas Kretschmann, Jessica De Gouw, Oliver JacksonCohen, Nonso Anozie, Katie McGrath


Premise:
A retelling of the Dracula tale where The Count pretending to be an American businessman in London who is on the verge of wireless energy. He is working with Van Helsing to find a cure which lets him walk in sunlight and take out a common enemy. He also finds the reincarnation of his long dead wife who is set to marry his protege.

My Take:
I must hand it to the writers for putting a completely new twist on the tale. I think it will created a dividing line between those who are purist for the original story and those who want to see someting new. For me, the story worked but the execution was a tad off and something was missing (not sure I know what though). Should it come back for a second season then it's set up to get very interesting.

Rating: In the middle
