Dracula: Season 1 Reviews

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.

Although the first two episodes are more successful than the third, there's simply not enough here to sustain intrigue for 90 minutes at a time.
January 5, 2020
The passionless Dracula fails to match its performative declarations.

January 2, 2020
Count Dracula and Bram Stoker deserved far better than this waste of potential that possessed so little ambition that one can't help but wonder why it was made in the first place other than to bank on a familiar IP that's in the public domain.
January 25, 2020
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 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]

Every other actor in Dracula is performing for a different show entirely, but instead of being amusing, it's exhausting.
January 6, 2020
The finale stank more than Dracula's coffin.
January 2, 2020
Gatiss and Moffat seem to have been at such pains to move things around and ensure that their Dracula is "different" that sustaining a compelling narrative line has taken a back seat.

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 2, 2020
Yes, it had sultry sexual undercurrents, some spicy dialogue and a clutch of memorable performances. But where was the story? And - one or two stunts aside - where was the horror?

Even with the quick descent to mediocrity and worse, I'd recommend that fans of campy horror drenched in buckets of blood watch the first 90-minute episode because the story comes second to the fun spirit that shines through.
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 6, 2020
Despite the shroud of mystery surrounding Moffat and Gatiss' "Dracula," it is regrettable that the revealed product won't do much to slake our thirst for more of the pair's other better project.
January 6, 2020
This is a "Dracula" with absolutely nothing to say.
January 2, 2020
These moments never feel gratuitous and shackle the action to a real sense of peril, while also giving gravity to Dracula's deadly power.
June 22, 2020
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
January 3, 2020
The best fictional vampire since Coppola's Dracula.

Deliciously addictive but not altogether satiating..
