Dracula's Curse is an American action/horror movie of the vampire subgenre. Marketed as Bram Stoker's Dracula's Curse, the film was written and directed by Leigh Scott and produced by David Michael Latt, David Rimawi, Sherri Strain and Rick Walker of The Asylum. The film premiered on April 25th, 2006.
The film takes place in an unidentified city (presumably New York City) in the modern day, and follows the characters of Rufus King (Thomas Downey) and Jacob Van Helsing (Rhett Giles), both of whom have been observing recent attacks made upon young teenagers in the city at night. Van Helsing correctly identifies that the attacks are being made by a group of vampires residing in the city. The vampires are led by a foreign seductress named Countess Bathorly (Christina Rosenberg), who hopes to use the humans to feed her growing vampire clan and to eventually seize control of the city, while at the same time using her growing power to gain the powers of "the Master". Discovering Bathorly's plan, Van Helsing and King begin to hunt down and destroy the vampires one by one, until they finally face the Countess herself and try to kill her once and for all, before her evil consumes the city and allows Dracula's curse to consume the human race.

Notes & Trivia Edit
- The full title for this movie is Bram Stoker's Dracula's Curse. Bram Stoker is the author of the original novel Dracula and obviously had no direct involvement in the production of this film because the fucker's dead.

Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental, and very weird.
