With Halloween just around the corner, it’s utterly impossible for me to miss a vampire movie, especially one that is a Dracula origins story. Dracula Untold isn’t as memorable or original as it wants to be, but it’s pure popcorn fun and brutally violent to the core. Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon lead this gothic […]
