It is a mix of the brilliant, the questionable, and the simply terrible, resulting in an entertaining, but at times, rather confusing experience. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 12, 2020
An at times reasonably diverting, but far more frequently exasperating skit on the novel which doesn't seem sure it wants to play for laughs, shock with gore or - most appallingly of all - play to the Twitter choir.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

This iteration of DRACULA will maintain viewer interest, but I would not call it a rush-to-must-see adaptation.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

See a different side of Dracula in this dark and twisted must watch Netflix series. It starts off slow, but then you won't be able to stop watching.

An audacious rekindling of the undying appeal of literature's most famous vampire.
February 10, 2020
What gives Dracula a witty frisson is its presumption that we're very familiar with the story, as most of us are. The pleasure comes from the surprising variations and clever changes the creators bring to the tale.

Well-done take on vampire classic is compelling, gory.

January 30, 2020
The story keeps things interesting by jumping around in time, preserving some of the epistolary format of the 1897 novel and springing a few twists on the viewer.

Despite some gorgeous gore for its gothic and modern horror settings, there's little to sustain anyone who dares dig their teeth into this limp and pale take on the character.
January 21, 2020
It's a romp worthy of its true roots - not the florid, Victorian Gothic romance published by Bram Stoker in 1897, but those same, campy Sunday Night Horrors I grew up loving.
January 17, 2020
The culprit, though, is not the bite of a vampire, but rather showrunners Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss biting off more than they were willing to chew in the first three episodes.
January 16, 2020
Dracula is a four and a half-hour long bait and switch, in which we were promised a devilishly seductive unholy creature ... and ended up with a dull, disappointing slog.
January 14, 2020
Every other actor in Dracula is performing for a different show entirely, but instead of being amusing, it's exhausting.
January 14, 2020
This BBC One and Netflix series drips with pure atmosphere. Its look and tone are so rich that the more absurd aspects don't matter much. They actually become absorbed into the experience. Gore and class dance together in a macabre buffet.
January 14, 2020
A new and fresh perspective of the Dracula's mythology. A necessary point of view of it. A must. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
January 10, 2020
The classic interpretation of the stage Dracula who inspired the original Universal film, and yet something original again. Perhaps that is the real skill of any reboot: to re-express the essence of the original while somehow changing its flavour.
January 9, 2020
Unfortunately, its development ends up being a disappointment and leaves us wanting a finale that is more appropriate to a horror story. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 8, 2020
Like Sherlock, it's packed with witty dialogue, snazzy special-effects and the kind of jarring rapid-fire editing that creates the desired shock value. As it's a vampire story, there's also an abundance of gore.
January 7, 2020
Deliciously addictive but not altogether satiating..

At most it succeeds in having acceptable fragments. [Full review in Spanish]
