Another recommendation from my sister who happens to be an expert on all things gory.
There are 3 episodes during this first season. It is like no other Dracula movie out there. The 2 main characters in the shows are Dracula of course and……Sister Agatha Van Helsing who has a wild sense of humor. Well….I can’t say it is her through all episodes but descendant of. And with the Van Helsing name….I am pretty sure you Dracula lovers can guess the story line.
I am just about to finish the third episode and can’t wait to see how it ends.
Seems way too creepy for me! 😕
Yes….creepy with some dark humor.
Thanks for the recommendation, Monica! I adore all things vampire, werewolf, ghost, etc. 🙂
You will love this show.
dracula was pretty good. i’ve just started octoberfest – beer & blood. its pretty good so far too. well produced, good music, edgy plot & characters. check it out on netflix 😉
I will let my sister know about this. I am not so much into blood and gore unless it’s a Tarantino movie. But if the story line is good….I can tolerate it. I will give it a shot.
YES….I enjoyed this version of Dracula. LOVE Sister Agatha. And liked how this Dracula was sort of a nod to a Boris Karloff type of Dracula.
There was a 3 part Dracula series on the BBC in January past, I wonder if it’s the same one?
It begins when a character called Jonathan Harker visits a decrepit old man (Dracula) in Transylvania on the pretence of doing legal work for him. But he’s really been asked there for one thing, and as the days go by the old man gets younger while Harker gets more and more withered and sick.
Probably the best modern take on the Dracula legend that I’ve ever seen. It was creepy as hell.
It sounds exactly like the one I posted. But I take it you are unable to see the video clip?
I’ll try and post a photo of the characters in the post so we know for sure.
And YES….creepy and funny.
I can’t see the video.
It says: “VIDEO UNAVAILABLE the uploader has not made this available in your country.” That’s an odd thing given that the 3 part series was made and produced here in the UK!?
Ah! Update. I can now see a picture below the video box – it is the same program.
I don’t know why we can’t watch movie trailers from other countries…its not the whole movie.
I have been into vampires since my teens, but only recently read Dracula. I didn’t think I would like it because I normally like books where the vampire is the hero, or at least the conflicted person. Dracula always struck me as an evil being.
When I read it, however, I found that I actually kind of enjoyed it so I might just check this series of 3 shows out and see if I turn out to enjoy it also.
Something tells me you will enjoy this. Let me know if you watch it.
Oh, I watched it and liked it. I am wondering what they can possibly do for another year though. I mean they are in present now, and well, you know the story so you can guess why I am wondering.
yeah…..you’re right. What can they do? I mean…present can go on for sometime if they keep a good story line going. Throw in flashback stories…..hmmmm. I don’t know if they would work. Maybe leaving it the way it ended might be the best thing. BUT…that is why great writers make the big bucks…cause they can create an amazing story line.
Ah well……lets see what happens.
Yeah, I think if they want to, they can find something to keep us involved. Maybe a flash back to how Dracula got how he is….his backstory. I know that Anne Rice started out with a “simple” newspaper person interviewing a vampire, and it grew over time into about 20 or so books. That vampire that was interviewed by the reporter had met other vampires who had met others, and it kept going.
I am still, to this day, finding books that I had never read before. So it can be done. I just have trouble picturing how it would work on this one.
Time will tell.
Oh and by the way, I see you said that you don’t like scary movies. I don’t consider vampire movies or books scary. In fact, I may have told you that I got over my fear of storms by watching a vampire show called Dark Shadows. I just imagined myself at Collinwood in a secret room dealing with the vampire, who was obviously in love with me etc….and the fear of storms just went away. There was always a storm at Collinwood. Speaking of which, I found Dracula very handsome also. (grin)
I love vampire novels to. Recently watched The Vampire Diaries and Shadowhunters on Netflix.
Were they good? I am not really into Vampire shows….but my sister is. She loves scary movies. She is always giving me movie recommendations that I rarely watch. But I did watch this one and liked it.
You bet! I loved it so much that I watched it three times. My daughter was like, “Are you crazy, Mama?” LOL. I have also watched True Blood.
Oh, I loved True Blood so much. Have you watched the entire thing including the last season? If you have, I have something to say…I don’t want to give away a spoiler if you haven’t.
Oh yes! Absolutely! I watched till the very end. I felt bad for Eric Northman. He was my absolute favourite.
The end ruined it for me….now whenever i think about watching it again, I remember that end and feel so let-down. It may sound funny but that did a number on my remembered enjoyment.
I completely understand and can relate to it. I felt the same.
My sons still can’t believe I watch “The Real Housewives” And I still get embarrassed when I say I do 😉
So I get it.
Haha! You should watch whatever makes you comfortable. 🙂 My daughter is pretty much the same.
