Dracula hasn’t faired very well in modern film or televsion. The world’s most famous vampire is a genre icon with literally hundreds of adaptations throughout movie history. However, the not-so good Count hasn’t had a solid hit under his cape in years. Dracula Untold was only a modest box office success. TV adventures in the form of the tepid “Dracula” on NBC or Showtime’s critically lauded monster rally “Penny Dreadful” were both cancelled. That makes Dracula’s most succesful outing in relatively recent history Stephen Sommer’s divisive “Van Helsing.” So, it hasn’t been looking really good for the lord of the undead.
But you truly can’t keep a good vampire down. Comic book scribe Warren Ellis and “Dredd” director/producer Adi Shankar have teamed up to adapt the fan favorite horror video game series Castlevania for Netflix. While the results aren’t perfect, they hit the right notes that horror fans are hoping for.
Needless to say SPOILERS for Penny Dreadful.Read more
