DRACULA'S CURSE is a made for European TV updating of the classic Bram Stoker novel. Director Roger Young has some imaginative sequences and in spite of a rather mediocre cast, the film modernizes the novel interestingly enough and it provides few scares but an interesting cerebral horror experience. Hardy Kruger Jr. (son of Hardy Kruger of "Hatari") is a little wooden as Jonathan Harker, but his performance is earnest. Patrick Bergin isn't compelling enough as Dracula, but he's not horrible, he's just had so many other actors to compare with. The rest of the cast (other than International favorite Giancarlo Giannini) is made up of unknowns (at least to most American audiences) but the guy who plays Quincy is interesting, and the young lady who plays Lucy is beautiful and quietly seductive. All in all, not a bad rendition of this overkilled vampire.

This film is a fairly well-made and up-dated version of the classic "Dracula" - featuring excellent sets/locations with quite a few imaginative camera angles throughout... but to fully enjoy this production you really should seek out the full-length 3 hour (TV mini-series) version available in Europe.

Rented this for a Saturday nite chiller thriller. I realize this was a tv

movie from Europe with a limited budget but putting a modern spin on

this classic tale didn't have much bite. I couldn't get past the way

these actors came across, felt like they were reading their scripts to

each other. There really wasn't much in the scare dept. a few good sets

here and there doesn't make a good film and this one fell short in every

way. Three stars is more than it deserves.

"Dracula's Curse" is a 102-minute truncated version of the 163-minute Itallian television mini-series "Il Bacio di Dracula" ("The Kiss of Dracula"), which retells Bram Stoker's gothic horror story in the modern day setting of Budapest. This time Jonathan Harker (Hardy Krüger Jr.) is an investment banker working in Eastern Europe who has become engaged to Mina Murray (Stefania Rocca), and is celebrating with his friends, English diplomatic official Arthur Holmwood (Conrad Hornby), businessman Quincy Morris (Alessio Boni), and the funny loving Lucy Westerner (Muriel Baumeister). After the ball and a quick spin in his new sports car, Harker has a late night meeting the Vladislav Tepes (Patrick Bergin), who wants Harker to work for his "uncle." Meanwhile, at the local insane asylum, Dr. Seward (Kai Wiesinger) is dealing with one of his patients, Roenfield (Brett Forest).

Of course those well-versed in the lore of vampires in general and Dracula in particular will recognize the variation of Vlad Tepes as being the name of the "real" Dracula of history, the Wallachian prince known as the Impaler. What threw me at first was the whole bit about Dracula's uncle, because the whole idea that Dracula becomes younger as he gets new blood that we have seen in the past (e.g., "Bram Stoker's Dracula"), is abandoned this time. Not only does Bergin play both Tepes, we go back and forth from the younger to the older throughout. This becomes problematic because the older Vladislav is the more imposing and interesting figure of the two, especially since the younger one smacks too much of James Bond at time. At least the older one has something of a Romanian accent (most of the time, anyhow).

I guess the most telling thing I can say about the Italian-made 2002 movie DRACULA'S CURSE would be this: I started this movie last weekend, got 35 minutes in, and tapped out. I didn't have a choice, I couldn't bear to sit through any more at one time. Originally released as a 2-part television movie, DRACULA'S CURSE has all the pacing of a slug up the wall of my back porch in the summer. It's got nowhere to go and all night to get there.

Starring Patrick Bergin (SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY) as the Count, DRACULA'S CURSE is a modern-day retelling of the classic Bram Stoker novel, updated with sports cars and cell phones, set in Budapest where American real estate agent Jonathan Harker (and by American, I mean the actor who plays him, Hardy Kruger, Jr. is from Switzerland) and his fiancee Mina are enjoying a nice vacation with their friends Lucy, Quincy and Arthur when Jonathan is met with a business proposal by the mysterious Vladislav Tepes who wishes Mr. Harker to liquidate his family's fortune and help him movie out of Romania.

Blah blah blah, Tepes is a vampire who, in this incarnation of the story, is out to seduce the entire group with promises of power and freedom from conscience if they but come to him, love him, want him. Meanwhile the visiting Dr. Valenzi (Giancarlo Gannini, CASINO ROYALE), friend to Dr. Seward whom Lucy had picked up one night at a party, is trying to convince the group that there's grave danger surrounding them. Of course they don't believe him because he's an eccentric old man and anyway, as Arthur says, "Vampires are movies!"

Actually, I have to interject and disagree because vampires aren't movies at all. Sometimes characters in movies are vampires, but I must insist that vampires themselves are not movies.
