By "2000", the title implies a modern, possibly futuristic update on the Dracula legend. Gadgets, hackers and bad-ass grave diggers set the table for a post Scream version of what a vampire movie should be. Dracula 2000 is glamorous, presents good looking men and a trio of beautiful women; some strong, some vulnerable. It introduces a script far too familiar yet directed in a unique way.
It has its slow moments, its cliches and some redundancy. The multiple flashbacks are absolutely annoying and the religious angle awkward. Some will call it superficial; more positive viewers will call it sexy. The story, after all, takes place during Mardi Gras. We get cleavage, partial and full nudity; not something we’d expect from such a polished product featuring well accomplished artists.
With its random techno score, its poorly choreographed fight scenes, its gratuitous special effects and its endless product placement, Dracula 2000 is immature but can still be appreciated for what it is; a vampire flick meant for one generation of teenagers who want to watch young actors turning into flirtatious, dangerous beasts. This isn’t exactly a memorable movie but it’s time well spent.

Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
