For you Dracula movie lovers, you might be very enthusiasm if you know that the Vampire presented by Bram Stoker will be back to the Hollywood movie. Moreover, instead of re-adapting the novel which was appeared in 1897, the project prefers to bring another story about Dracula through the title “Dracula Untold”.

Different with the previous Dracula movies, the Dracula Untold is starred by Luke Evans. It tells the story about the king Vlad III Tepes aka Dracula who wants to protect his family and his citizenry from Turkish nation attack leaded directly by Sultan Mehmed II.
Realizing that his citizenry is less numbers than the enemies, Vlad is trying to find a help roaming around. He even desperately changes himself to be blood sucking creature for the sake of winning the war.
But, after changed is not the same anymore. The Dracula should face the fact that he becomes enemy for human beings including his own family.
