Plot
The first half of the movie centers on Dracula’s daughter, as the title implies. Interestingly, she is not the contradictory seducing hermit her father was, and therefore not exactly the vision of the bloodsucker Hollywood initially offered, which implies that Dracula’s charisma was his own. He died at the end of the previous film, and this is his legacy. As a result, this movie isn't as iconic.
His absence plunges the sequel into thriller territory more than supernatural horror. Dialogue is at the forefront, as if a woman couldn't be depicted as viciously as her male counterpart. The cold performances make it a more painful ride than it needs to be. This said, this is a legit vampire tale and it gets better with the right audience and a good dose of patience.
Dracula’s daughter has no visual gimmick, but is interesting because she’s sensual, feminine and written as less inquisitive. In the end, she is no more than a pale alteration of her father’s archetype, though, and doesn't have a backstory as dense as his. The writing and acting are only decent, and the dialogue boring. The movie has a good twist but directorial efforts simply aren't maximized.
