Movie Diary 10/7/2014

Dracula Untold (Gary Shore, 2014). This one means to be the Original Vampire saga, with Luke Evans as Vlad the Impaler himself. But did you know the first Dracula was also a family man? In this one, Vlad tries to save wife and child from the invading Ottoman Empire, portrayed here as ISIS-like baddies in search of new turf for the caliphate. Bonus: An epilogue hints at the “shared universe” of Universal monster movies to come. Time to get Glenn Strange out of retirement. (full review 10/10)
