by those he trusted most,
a Transylvanian Prince is devastated to
discover his beautiful and beloved wife
has been murdered, driving him so mad
with grief that he embraces the dark
world of the undead and attracts the
attentions of the Slayers in the fantasy
thriller Dracula The Dark Prince...
LIVING IN THE HALF-LIGHT as one of the undead, Prince Dracula (Luke Roberts)
has a lifetime of grief, parted by death from the wife he loved more than anything
in the world in a new take on the Dracula story, Dracula The Dark Prince.
In a mysterious castle of vampires, Dracula rules his kingdom, little realising
that a party of Slayers is on its way to seek him out to end his life forever.
The Dark Prince
is an intriguing fantasy
that is a little lightweight
but has a tragic
and clever storyline...
Among them is the enigmatic Alina (Kelly Wenham), who holds the fabled Lightbringer
and travels with her sister Esme (Holly Earl) to meet the most feared vampire
hunter Leonard Van Helsing (Jon Voight: Mission Impossible; Transformers)
through a dark and dangerous forest crawling with the undead, the creatures
of the night.
A mystical weapon said to have been used by Cain to kill Abel and to be able
to give eternal life, the Lightbringer can only be used by the direct descendants
of Cain and Abel. In the wrong hands it can only bring death and Dracula seeks
to use the weapon for his own ends.
Alina and Esme are set upon by thieves, who steal the Lightbringer and, in order
to get it back, Alina throws their lot in with the brigands. The leader is Lucien
(Ben Robson), who is to discover his destiny and who is attracted to Alina.
Alina still has to find Leonard Van Helsing in order to defeat Prince Dracula
and his army of undead, which attacks them in the forest. But when she falls
into Dracula's hands and he becomes obsessed with her, will Van Helsing find
the hidden castle and be in time to save her before she can resist the power
of the vampires?
