Dracula Untold: Movie Review

Dracula Untold
On October 10, 2014, Dracula Untold was released in U. S theaters. It is a dark fantasy action horror film and had $215 million in the box office worldwide. The movie is 92 minutes long and overall, it was something different to see.
Dracula Untold was based in the Middle Ages in the life of Vlad the Impaler, prince of Wallachia and Transylvania. Vlad and his soldiers went to Broke Tooth Mountain on an exploration and found a dark creature in the cave, in which Vlad stabbed the creature with his sword. After coming back from the exploration, Ottoman scouts come to his castle and accuse him of killing a battalion of scouts to do their bidding, which would be to gather the boys of the city to have them join the Sultan’s army. Vlad refuses this offer, but the Ottoman Sultan’s army threaten him with a battle. Vlad desperately goes back to Broke Tooth Mountain in seek of the vampire creature in the cave to gain the power and help he needs to defeat the opposing army. The vampire gives Vlad the offer of becoming a vampire forever or only having vampiric powers for three days, but it is up to Vlad’s actions to decide his fate. Dracula Untold has mixed reviews online and overall, I could say that there are parts that needed improvement. I would recommend this movie to anyone that is able to get into the history and enjoys horror films. Ultimately, it is up to you to watch Dracula Untold to find out what happens to Vlad and if he becomes a vampire or not!
