Today is going to be a great day, you want to know why? Because today is the Monsters Brawl in Appleton. What is this Monsters Brawl you may ask, well it just so happens to combine two very awesome things: Halloween and Roller Derby. That is right my friends, tonight there will be witches and vampires on roller skates beating the shit out of each other -- so excited!
Anyways...today I am doing something a bit unusual and review a movie that is not on Netflix nor in my personal collection, instead this movie was on SyFy's 31 Days of Halloween...hey that is a pretty awesome title for a month long Halloween movie marathon!
Today I will review Dracula 2000, I caught this movie late last night when I couldn't sleep...
You might remember her from this:
So yes, THAT bright haired fake day walker is in this movie...oh also Gerard Butler, really the ONLY good thing about this movie because at least he is pretty to look at.
Oh yeah, that's right the trailer for this movie:
So the basic premise is simple enough, Dracula is now in the 21st century and in New Orleans trying to find the daughter of his arch enemy Van Helsing. Lots of death and blood and really bad fashion choices...
Honestly this movie isn't all that great, but if you're in the mood to see a lot of young people die while Gerard Butler goes around most of the movie without a shirt...then you might really enjoy this!
IMDB gives this a 4.7 out of 10 stars, Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 15% with a 46% audience approval rating. I am giving it 2 out of 5 skulls and those two skulls are purely because Gerard Butler and Nathan Fillion aka Castle are in it (oh did I forget to mention that earlier? Yeah he plays a freaking priest!), otherwise I find that the lead actress is really annoying and the plot is just craptastic.
So there you have it, another one bites the dust! (Pun intended)
Sleep tight and don't let the zombies bite!
