I wasn’t a fan of this movie. There was a major problem with it.
Dracula was never fatally sensitive to sunlight.
Actually vampires in the lore that came before Dracula were also not fatally sensitive to sunlight.
When you do a story about Dracula, you should know this. It’s not even hard to find the information out. Wikipedia has it in a handy chart form.
The concept of the story was good. There was a heartwarming plot line that I liked. The soundtrack and special effects were also good. As were the battle scenes.
But when you base major story events around the sun that are in complete contradiction with the lore, you create something that has major plot problems for anyone who knows the lore. Don’t mix Buffy’s vampires with Dracula. Also, he seemed to become an elemental wizard somewhere that could control storm clouds? WTF?
And it’s not even hard to catch up on the lore for Dracula. All you need to do is read one book. It’s even free in audio format on Librivox.
One thing the movie did do was bring some awareness of the Ottomon Empire.
At least in researching for this post, I’ve stumbled onto a few vampire movies I haven’t seen.
I’m off to take Pixie to the shop for her winter booties and such. There’s a Timmie’s nearby, so I’m thinking I’ll hit it up for some tea while doing homework. Or maybe I’ll visit that music store on the corner that I can never seem to get to…
Guid cheerio the nou,
