Facing threats to his kingdom and family, a prince looks to make a deal with dangerous supernatural forces in Dracula Untold, released on Friday at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

Dracula Untold tells the story of Transylvanian prince Vlad III Țepeș (Luke Evans), whose period of peace is threatened by Sultan Mehmed II (Dominic Coper), who demands 1,000 of his kingdom’s boys, including Vlad’s own son to join his army.

In order to save his son, his wife Mirena (Sarah Gadon), and the kingdom he loves, Vlad journeys to Broken Tooth Mountain, where he encounters an ancient demon, Caligula (Charles Dance), and enters into a Faustian bargain—one that gives the prince the strength of 100 men, the speed of a falling star and enough power to destroy his enemies.

However, he will be inflicted with an insatiable thirst to drink human blood and this ultimately leads him to embrace his destiny as the mythological vampire Dracula.

Dracula Untold is rated 15 and runs 92 minutes.
