A team of techno-savvy thieves break into a high-security vault, hoping to steal priceless artworks. To their utter disbelief, the vault instead hides a well-protected crypt, a crypt that has not been opened in 100 years, a crypt that will unleash Dracula's ancient terror upon the modem world — and all who come into contact with him.
PROFANITY: Lots of very strong profanity throughout. SEX/NUDITY: One sex scene and very brief nudity in a few scenes. VIOLENCE: LOTS of graphic violence, as would be expected. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: Consisted of Dracula biting people and being chased. COMEDY: None
Of all the indignities to have been visited upon Dracula during the past century, none is more unsettling than what has happened to the world's most famous vampire in Dracula 2000. Dimension Films, the exploitation division of Miramax, decided that, with their two horror franchises currently on hold (the Scream and Halloween films), they would turn their attention in another direction. So they sunk their greedy fangs into the most venerable monster they could find and sucked him dry. Hopefully, movie-goers will greet this blatant attempt at cashing in on the Dracula name with the indifference it deserves. If that's the case, Dracula 2000 will slide quietly into the relative obscurity of the cold, soulless, commercial grave that is Blockbuster Video.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
The opinions are all over the place. Only a few adults found it enjoyable. Most of the females 20-29 gave it fairly high marks. Younger females didn't find it quite as enjoyable. Young males rated it only slightly higher than the females.
With these types of opinions there's really no way to predict who will enjoy this movie. My educated guess is that MOST fans of this genre will enjoy this latest installment, at least to some degree.
Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
This is by no means the type of movie I prefer to see, but I did find it entertaining. I felt it was done well and didn't contain excessive violence just to increase the body count. It actually had a story. It's still a movie that's going to mainly appeal to fans of this genre.
Dracula 2000's update begins with team of techno-savvy thieves who break into a high- security vault, hoping to steal priceless artworks. To their utter disbelief, the vault instead hides a well-protected crypt, a crypt that has not been opened in 100 years, a crypt that will unleash Dracula's ancient terror upon the modem world — and all who come into contact with him.
Dracula, freed at last from a century in confinement, finds himself in a 21stcentury of chaos and temptation, of Virgin record stores and subterranean nightclubs, where he fits right in. His first destination is the United States — the ultimate location for his charismatic seductions of beautiful young women and his unceasing quest for power — but there is another reason he has come here. Somewhere in New Orleans is a young woman Dracula must find . . . the only person on earth with whom he truly shares his dark legacy.
