When a team of techno-savvy thieves break into a high-security vault, They don't discover priceless artworks...they find a crypt unopened for 100 years. Suddenly, the ancient terror of Dracula is unleashed in the chaotic 21st century. Free to follow his pursuits of seduction and power, Dracula's first destination is America and the exotic city of New Orleans, a place where he feels right at home. Not far behind, however, is a young vampire hunter (Lee Miller) from London determined to save a young woman (Justine Waddell) with whom Dracula shares his dark legacy.
A decent enough vampire tale.
- Dracula 2001 review by CP Customer
This modern updating of Bram Stoker's classic Dracula tale isn't all that bad; it takes the famous vampire and the surrounding characters and transforms them into a pretty coherent story for the present day, and in an interesting sub-plot also incorporates a catholic based twist to the mythology. While it doesn't have the depth of 'Interview with the Vampire' or the visual effects of 'Van Helsing', 'Dracula 2001' is pretty lightweight stuff, although it's an enjoyable film that should keep most vampire fans entertained.
