Dracula Is A Peace-Loving Family Man In Newest Dracula Untold Trailer

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Hollywood has finally wrung every last drop of evil out of the classic literary movie monster with Dracula Untold, the new prequel in which Vlad the Impaler is a loving dad who would rather take his son on a happy riding trip than, you know, impale his enemies. Sigh.

Sure, it's awesome to see Dracula turn into a giant mob of bats and smash into an invading army, but every time I hear Dracula — again, Vlad the Impaler — talk about how swell peace is, I want to take my copy of Bram Stoker's original book and beat a Hollywood executive to death with it.

Note: This is the first international trailer for the movie, which has the much better title Dracula Zero in Japan. I would argue that the movie should be called Dracula Zero inn all countries, because that's about how much the movie has to do with the actual character of Dracula.

"I would argue that the movie should be called Dracula Zero in all countries, because that's about how much the movie has to do with the actual character of Dracula."

Damn skippy. Strange how the closest modern adaptation of Dracula is The Strain, which is considered an original novel/series. For some reason, Hollywood is afraid to do a by the book take of Dracula unless it is done under a different title.

Also, anyone else tired of the good guy/tries to be a good guy vampire trope? I don't mind it being around but I hate how it has dominated modern vampire pop culture. I think that's why The Strain is such a breath of fresh air. Evil vampires. And only evil vampires. Just like Dracula should be.
