The special effects maybe haven't all stood the test of time, the atmosphere's often a little dark and hazy in lack of detail (didn't think about this the last time I watched it), and Kate Beckinsale really had a sexier outfit in the Underworld series, but overall...
Well it wasn't great overall, but it was exciting, and different. Atmospheric.
It feels like a welcome break from the typical horror movie, with not just Dracula but also Werewolves and Frankenstein and the Vatican and Van Helsing and all mixed in. And Hugh! What a medley.
I remember having a fun time with this one last I saw it, so I decided to watch it again, and for a while I wasn't convinced but... it really does get you at the end. Damn. Didn't remember it being that good after all.
Hope I forget enough to give this a shot down the line again.
