Mary, a descendant of the prototypical vampire slayer, works at a Virgin megastore in New Orleans, and the gratuitous use of the city during Mardi Gras is the least of this movie's unoriginal sins.

One half-expects a sexually subversive, blood-soaked gay carnival. Instead, Simon makes the effete Dracula (Butler) suck on some abuse.

Dracula may stay undead in the new millennium, but there's not a sign of life -- oh, that bloodless acting -- in this sorry mess.

Even true believers will have a hard time sinking their fangs into this thoroughly perfunctory affair.

Wilts when compared in the light with other Dracula films.

A perfect example of the kind of rigidly conventional vampire movie that wearies contemporary horror buffs.

The slapdash pic appears to be the work of folks who made things up as they went along.

There is ... very little that this film does right, and I can identify nothing to justify its existence.

[Dracula is] never a force of evil of mythic proportions; he seems small-minded and even whiny.

Any new vampire film needs fresh blood, and this one is clotted with clichés, including its Matrix-style acrobatics.

The special effects, which owe a debt to the vastly superior Nightmare on Elm Street series, are bargain basement, at best.

Butler's Dracula might be the worst ever committed to film.

A bloody mess as a movie, one with acting so lame it's likely to prompt shrieks, not of horror but of derisive laughter.

A thudding, suspense-free montage of unshocking shock effects and more severed heads than toppled during the French Revolution.

Considering that it arrives a week before going stale-dated, one shouldn't expect much electricity from Dracula 2000. And shocking it isn't.

Dracula 2000 is nothing more or less than pure popcorn filmmaking, with an emphasis on the 'corn', and...apparently... proud of it.

It doesn't always work, but it does manage hold our interest.
