TV-PG | 30 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror

Soap opera with a vampire. Mostly boring drama, but has some moments. Dark Shadows by Gold Key comics are a better buy. (Buyer Beware: Be careful when trying to buy the DVDs, I got ripped off by a seller who didn't send anything. Another buyer threatened legal action and was then sent his. On hearing of my problems, he sent me a copy of the DVDs he got from the seller, to help out. There are good people out there, but more crooks. When I finally GOT the DVDs, they turned out to be boring as hell! *sigh* Very dated and slow material. What a disappointment after reading the comics!)
33. Dracula Reborn (2015)
102 min | Horror
Three journalists travel from Vancouver to Transylvania to uncover the truth about Dracula. The trio's determination may end up costing them their lives.
AWFUL! Absolute crap. Unwatchable. Irritating and terrible. BAD. Avoid!
