REVIEW: "Dracula's Curse"

REVIEW: "Dracula's Curse" (2006)

This blog is part of the 2013 Precious Monsters Vampire Blog Hop (Valentine's Day, 2013).

NOT Recommended...

Wow, I am not sure what to say about this movie. It is so bad it became good again then went straight back to awful. Just everything about this movie is whole new level of suck. I am not a fan of Bram Stoker's novel but he should consider coming back from the grave and taking everyone involved with this movie out. I mean it King Tut has his curse, Bram should get something for this. All Tut had were some grave robbers. Nothing this bad.

First off, the acting is as hollow as you can get. Not one actor in the whole movie has inflection in their voice. They have normal and angry voices. It is like the actor/esses have never had a normal conversation in their lives. It is like they scoured the local high school for acting talent.

Then when it comes to the fight scenes, they are so robotic. Everyone moved like they had a hanger still in their coat. Just an amateur effort all around. Also, I got the feeling that Col Rufus (played by Thomas Downey) wanted to wink at the camera every time he fired a gun or landed a punch.

As far as the plot goes, I think the writer went to a "Vampire: The Masquearde" event and took notes. Every part is hackneyed and done before. Almost all the characters were pointless. There were about six or seven characters that didn't need to be there at all. Sad thing is they could have saved money and made something decent here. They pulled an M.C. Hammer and hired everyone from the neighborhood.

Do your self a favor and re-watch "Buffy." The production value is so much better.


  1. Well, I definitely won't be looking for this one on Netflix. LOL! Thanks for the review.

  2. LOL I love your review :)

    I hate to admit it, however, but I kind of like this one, it's a bit of a guilty pleasure. It is utterly terrible, but I have a soft spot for the Asylum and it is so much better than the Patrick Bergin title of the same name which I am sure had a much bigger budget ::g::.

  3. I love bad movies, but this one was just so bad. Also congrats on being the first two people to comment on our blog.

  4. Thanks for the review, can't say that I've seen it and now won't!


  5. Oh boy... My friend was telling me about movies so bad they are good, but this seems to be NOT that. bleh.

  6. You almost make me want to see it *because* of its badness. :-D
