Directed by former CIA officer Michael Sellers, Vlad chronicles the far-reaching consequences of a professor's (Child's Play veteran Brad Dourif) request that his students visit the tomb of the infamous Vlad Drakul (aka Vlad the Impaler). Known as one of the cruelest figures in world history, Drakul's reputation for dismembering his victims ultimately led to the belief that he himself may have been a vampire -- he was, in fact, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Critic Reviews for Vlad

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It boasts enough camp, skin and 15th century flashbacks of torment to make it fitting fodder for campus screens.

Shot stylishly on location in Romania, and its authentic locales are its strongest asset, but its trite framing story and stilted, colorless dialogue lend themselves to unintended humor.

It all adds up to pleasantly nonsensical mayhem.

The story is incredibly slow-paced with its often unexciting and lackluster "action" sequences...

Cinema Crazed

The horror aspects are dark and hard-hitting without being gratuitous.

Audience Reviews for Vlad

A very poor film considering the cast! Was hoping for a good vampire slasher type film.....but barely anything happens until the last 10mins!

Since I loved Bram Stokers Dracula so much, this just seemed an extension of that, albeit slower.More History/Folklore of Vlad Drakul that fascinates me so much, & a bit of interesting Romanian customs as well to keep me interested.An Amulet Necklace/Locket that was part of Dracula's Family, & some time travel by a English Girl that I never really understood completely make up the story.One of the 4 exchange students was a relative of Vlad's somehow & had visions.They are pursued by a secret society of Vlad Drakul followers, of which Billy Zane belongs, they are trying to get the necklace.One of the 4 Exchange Students is kidnapped by Vlad , he makes Love to her & Drinks her Blood,but it is the Time Traveling Middle English Beauty he is after.It becomes a quest to return the Amulet Locket to Vlads Tomb to rid the world of Vlad.
If it weren't for the interesting Folklore/History that I seem to have a Passion for( that I can't explain to myself), this would be a lame Movie, but I enjoyed it.

Worst movie ever. I'd rather have my eyes gouged out before seeing it again...very disappointing considering the talent.
