(Review originally written at 25 May 2005)

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

To say it kindly; this movie was absolutely terrible.

The story is impossible to follow because nothing in it makes really sense. It makes this movie a very annoying one to watch. The movie is just a lame excuse to shoot some lesbian porn sequence's. And what was with the ending? Was it supposed to be a surprise ending? Anyway I didn't understood one thing about this movie, including the ultra-odd ending.

Darian Caine is the most boring Dracula in movie history. It made me mad that they let her say classic Dracula lines, like; Listen to them, children of the night, what music they make! Her delivery of those lines is so absolutely horrible, she says it like a..well, porn actress. And why was Jonathan Harker played by a female? It was plain odd and the scene in which Mina finds out that Johnathan is in fact a lady is hilarious! And Van Helsing (also a female character in this movie) shares the bed with Dracula? I don't think so...

OK, the cinematography and the directing really ain't that bad and the music is also pretty good, although the main theme is ripped off from Wojciech Kilar's "Dracula" from 1992. This movie is style over substance you may say, only problem is that the style doesn't compensate for the substance.

Yep, it bites...
