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.
Itβs 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. Heβs especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night β 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 planβ¦ 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!
