Dracula Untold (Or How Grampy Barnes Got His Groove On)

Three things:

a. This is not a historically accurate rendition of the real Vlad Dracula.  If you’re looking for that, this is not the movie for you.  The movie pretty much tapdances between the real Vlad’s history, with some familiar bits that I remember reading from the Topps comics “Vlad Dracula: The Impaler” and of course, Stoker’s Dracula.  We all know that “Dracula” and “vampire” is pretty synonymous these days, even though he’s actually remembered as a folk hero in his native Romania. 

b. This is actually a darn good vampire movie and I have MISSED darn good vampire movies!  (Damn it, I want the sequel already!)

c.  Castlevania fans, rejoice!  This is pretty much the closest we’re gonna get to a good Castlevania movie, unless miracles happen in the next few years.

SPOILERS AHEAD. THIS IS YOUR LAST WARNING.  Also, be advised that my Steve and Bucky Muses were watching this movie with me and Bucky Muse actually took time off from necking with Steve to pay attention.

Grampy, mind you, is preening at all this.  God help us.
