Enjoyable low budget chiller ... - Wrath of Dracula review by NP

Spoiler Alert

Mark Topping plays a hesitantly spoken chauvinistic Van Helsing, and Hannaj Bang Bendz is a resilient, modern-looking Mina Harker in this wordy adaption of Bram Stoker’s most famous story. The project is helmed by prolific writer/director Steve Lawson, the man behind the equally dialogue-driven ‘Jekyll and Hyde’, ‘Ripper Untold’ and ‘Mummy Resurrection’ among others, all released over the last few years. He specialises in modestly budgeted productions, alongside Creativ Studios who maintain that the limited number of sets and locations look good.

Films like this are an acquired taste. Some reviewers seem offended by the static style of such productions, but they are obviously successful enough to continue. I rather like them – they are invariably well-acted and the stories are interestingly told. This is an adaption that creates an even bigger enemy than Sean Cronin’s bullet-headed Count – sexism against women. Mina, always glamorous and confident, interrupts her vampire hunting, where she’s hoping to rescue Dean Marshall’s wet hubby Harker, to explain how able women generally are, and how the world seems designed to undermine them, often with a raised eyebrow; Van Helsing can only bow his head in quiet agreement.

Some of the action sequences don’t work, but other than that, this is up to the usual standard of Steve Lawson’s productions. It won’t appeal to everyone. But what it does, it does well. The performances are very good (there’s a real sense of menace and power from Cronin’s Dracula) and the adaption is thoughtfully told. Interestingly, a series of out-takes play under the end credits. My score is 7 out of 10.
