Well this modern retelling of Dracula certainly came out of leftfield for me. It just kind of appeared on Amazon and it is a modern retelling – though the vampire is not called Dracula and the story is loose.
As well as being present day, the action is moved to the US and that makes the choice of English primaries, in a couple of the roles, interesting to say the least.

I wasn’t convinced and yet the film might have been an average movie but for the wooden acting (more than anything) and the lack of exposition. As it is, it falls below average. 3.5 out of 10.
