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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

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 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]

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.

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.

Deliciously addictive but not altogether satiating..
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

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

Dracula has a few issues balancing tone, but its epic take on Dracula vs. Van Helsing is strong enough to carry it.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

There's enough fascinating weirdness in all three strands to at least make it feel worth its failures.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
January 6, 2020
There were nods to the original narrative, but this was a more grown-up and clever beast altogether, with true high questions about good and evil, betrayals and loving sacrifice, as befitted a labour of love from Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat.
January 6, 2020
...Dracula is wonderful. It's a series that's fun to watch, filled with moments that will make your vampire senses tingle while also providing new insight into the Count and the lore around him.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
January 6, 2020
Loving, playful, allusive, often hideous, it was a version that could only have been written by those steeped up to the neck in vampiric lore, who spent their childhoods wearing their parents' drapery.
January 6, 2020
Claes Bang's lip-smacking performance as the eponymous count with the specialist dietary requirements was menacing and mordant, carefully modulated to appeal to fans of horror and mock-horror alike.
