Dracula 2000 was panned by the critics when it came out but it’s actually not bad if you look at it as a B movie. The story follows the revival of Dracula (Gerard Butler) and his search for Mary Heller (Justine Waddell) who is actually part of the famed vampire hunting family the Van Helsings.
There are some elements that really work. First, the story uses some of the classic elements of the vampire stories. For instance Dracula is a ladies man both feeding on their blood and seducing and turning others. Second, there’s some good imagery like Mary walking out into a hallway at her house that’s been transformed with red paint and red drapes the color of blood obviously. Finally, there are some action sequences thrown in as well. All together that makes Dracula 2000 not a bad horror movie.
