Dracula Untold

DRACULA UNTOLD
2014 film review by Wmpyr

Do I recommend this film? It really depends on, to who am I recommending it to. And that arises the million dollar question, who does this film target? In my opinion if you like the Blade series especially Blade III with Dracula, then your going to like this one. The reason why I say that is because there is a lot of action in this movie. If your expecting to see a slow paced moody film with excellent acting and cinematography then watch Nosferatu or Shadow of the Vampire, not this one. If your expecting the classical debonaire Dracula that is the likable villain then don't watch this one, watch Bram Stoker's Dracula or Dracula with Bela Lugosi or Frank Langella. Even though this one uses the same name, same character as the Dracula that everyone knows and loves, this is an origins tale so your going to see a side of Dracula that is rarely seen. It's the patriot, the warrior, and the man who sacrifices all for his family. Only at the very end do they give us a brief glimpse of the Dracula that we know with a tiny tiny bit of romance hinting what's to come, which was my favorite scene. Overall as long as you know what to expect this wasn't bad. It's an enduring film in a way because we don't get to see the Dracula we are familiar with, but by the end this Dracula helps you appreciate that Dracula more. This film is just him going through battle after battle, which could get quite boring, and those scenes did. Now there are some cool memorable scenes sprinkled throughout so the effort to change the pace of the film was definitely there, and the vampire that makes Dracula is absolutely great. The vampire powers in this film are a little over the top, but on the other hand let's just say he would make a good fight with the Arnold Vosloo Imhotep Mummy from The Mummy films. This actor looks the part of Dracula. After seeing the warrior Dracula in this film, it just made me want to see the next chapter the lonely, dark, and mysterious, romantic Dracula.

Blood Gnome by Full Moon

BLOOD GNOME
2004 film review by Wmpyr

Another Full Moon Entertainment horror film. I can't say that I would recommend this film to just anybody since it does have some definite negatives, even though I thought it was better than Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyan. It does have some redeeming qualities. I wish it was shot in a better quality film, it reminds me of Evil Bong 3 in film quality. The concept revolves around invisible blood lusting gnomes, and you can only see them if you drink their blood. I did enjoy this concept, and the BDSM scene was interesting because they introduce you to a subculture, like your a tourist exploring this strange taboo world. The cover of the DVD box with the two gnome heads is awesome looking and so is the title name, and Melissa Pursley steals the show. Lots of potential here.

Murdercycle from Full Moon

MURDERCYCLE
1999 film review by Wmpyr

A Full Moon film that is more sci-fi action than it is horror. In fact I would say PREDATOR is more of a horror film than this one. It seems like a B-grade PREDATOR film at parts because they do spend a significant amount of time where we have commandos in nature being ambushed by an alien armed to the teeth. This film actually attempts to go more into depth trying to explain everything. One thing that I've noticed is that low budget films usually have to explain a lot through dialog, while bigger budget films "show you" the story. That being said, I knew what I was getting into and it was pretty cool, I really have no complaints. I wish that the alien was not a Murdercycle, which ultimately works but I would have preferred a different kind of cyborg monster.
