Dracula: The Dark Prince (2013)

I so love the intro of Dracula: The Dark Prince. The cartoonish effect in the beginning makes the movie different from others. The ancient architectural design of items and buildings and the scenery was just incredibly amazing to my eyes. I love every aspect of this movie. Director Pearry Reginald Teo (Dead Inside, Witchville, Killer’s Creed) made this movie for me or so it felt. I was so intrigued by the production sets and scenes.

Dracula: The Dark Prince will reel you in from the very beginning. Dracula has it all that a person could ask for in a movie of this type - romance, comedy, action, vampires, Dracula, betrayal, emotions that can be felt by its audience, great sound effects, light effect, scenery, actors/actresses that played their role extremely well, Van Helsing and so much more.

The Dark Prince really hit my emotions on the right spot. I felt sad for Dracula (Luke Roberts - Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (Captain of the Guard), Ambition, Pull) when he returned home from a victorious fight to find out that his trusted knights betrayed him and killed his one and only true love. The different sets with flaming fires, candles, curtains, ancient items and of course the architectural designs really did it for this movie and for me.

What is a Dracula movie without Van Helsing (Jon Voight - Beyond, Pride and Glory, Transformers, The Legend of Simon Conjurer) hunting Dracula. I loved his acting in this movie and wish there were more of him to see. It would’ve been really nice if director Pearry Teo had actually shown Van Helsing and armoured guy fighting instead of seeing their shadows and a sword falling.

Cheesy part - Lucian (Ben Robson - The Joint, Everything Carries Me to You, Dreams Play Apart) is a thief who is afraid to fight when they were faced with a battle against the Dracula team and turns out to be the one who held the power to use the Lightbringer. Lucian then learns that he is a rare breed from the Cain bloodline. The craziest thing is Lucian has to cut himself and put his blood on the Lightbringer in order to use it or it becomes useless without his blood.

The castle is one of a kind. I was surprised by the crucifix that Dracula made with the bones of his knights who betrayed him. He made the cross to be tall as can be and it stands right next to his coffin that he sleeps in. I did not get how Dracula can bite his wrist and drop blood drops on top one of his knights wound that had steel armor on top of it and the wound shockingly healed. I always thought you had to drink the blood of Dracula to be healed.

The only suspense in Dracula was not knowing who Alina (Kelly Wenham - The Magnificent Eleven, Payback Season, Perseverance, We’re Here for a Good Time, Not a Long Time) was going to choose, Dracula or the thief with Cains blood. I would definitely watch this movie several times again.

Synopsis:

In his search for the Lightbringer, Dracula crosses paths with a beautiful crusader named Alina who bears a remarkable resemblance to his murdered bride. One look at her and Dracula is immediately smitten. Could Alina be the reincarnation of his long-dead love? Dracula has Alina kidnapped and brought to his castle where the Beast must now try to win his Beauty's heart.
