Plot: a young Vlad must become a monster in order to save his people
In order to save his village and 1,000 boys from being taken and turned into soldiers, Vlad (Evans) willingly drinks the blood of a vampire to give him super strength. It is in no way historically accurate, but who the hell said it was?
Luke is very nice to look at. The movie is entertaining and creepy. All those dead people on spikes are creepy. The specials were done well. I thought the story was really good as well. We both actually recommend this one and DJ doesn’t usually like vampire movies, serious, campy or otherwise.
My score: 65. DJ’s score: 60.
