Over the weekend NBC announced that it would be adding some more horror to its prime-time line up and this time they are dipping into the classic horror pool and bringing their spin to the Dracula legend.
So, today a trailer and synopsis shows up and I thought you all might like check it out.
Itâ€™s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. Heâ€™s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night â€“ useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to planâ€¦ until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
Obviously not a direct interpretation of the classic Dracula tale but hey, anything that brings new horror to the tube is worth a shot in my book.
DRACULA will star Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the lead blood sucker.
Check out the trailer and see what you think!
