An ancient evil is once again unleashed in the 21st Century as fright master Wes Craven presents this terrifying and suspenseful sequel to the big-screen hit DRACULA 2000! Featuring screen favorites Jason Scott Lee (RUSSELL MULCAHY'S TALE OF THE MUMMY), Jason London ( OUT COLD, THE RAGE: CARRIE 2), and Craig Sheffer (HELLRAISER: INFERNO, A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT), ASCENSION is the riveting story of a group of medical students who come across the body of the world's most notorious vampire! When a mysterious stranger appears and offers the students $30 million to harvest the body and steal its blood for auction, it's an offer they can hardly refuse! But as the lure of riches collides with unimaginable terror, the students also find themselves relentlessly pursued by a vampire killer from the Vatican! Also starring Roy Scheider (JAWS) and Brande Roderick (TV's BAYWATCH) -- anyone who craves intense suspense can happily sink their teeth into this chilling thriller!
Did someone say Dracula II? Like there haven't been a few hundred Dracula movies already? Oh well: Dracula II: Ascension is a sequel to Dracula 2000, with the ageless vampire again returning from apparent extinction. The twist is that Dracula's blood will be used by a researcher (baroque performance by Craig Sheffer) to reverse the effects of a crippling disease; Sheffer's assistants (read: vampire fodder) will help. Joining this scientific survey is long-haired vampire slayer Jason Scott Lee, who seems to have stalked in from another picture--but never mind Roy Scheider, whose wizened priest might be onscreen for all of 60 seconds. After a reasonably lively opening half-hour, this cheapie devolves into the usual blood-letting and illogical behavior. Some of the vampire lore is pretty diverting (did you know a vampire must untie every knot he sees?), but Dracula II is strictly for enthusiasts of the genre. --Robert Horton

If there was a vampire movie that did NOT need a sequel, it would be "Dracula 2000."
