Despite obvious extensive research and the Stoker seal of approval belated Dracula sequel Dracula The Un-Dead is a wasted opportunity which panders to modern tastes instead of keeping faith with the original. *Beware of spoilers*.
Dacre Stoker and collaborator Ian Holt throw in everything from Elizabeth Bathory and Jack The Ripper to The Titanic creating a convoluted yarn which, although fast paced, struggles to find themes and focus.
This sort of Victorian Gothic Alternative History or Literary Re-imagining has been done far more successfully before (see Kim Newman’s Anno Dracula trilogy for effortlessly ingenious use of the same setting and characters).
The Un-Dead reads more like a sequel to Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula movie and when Dracula intones to Mina’s son “I am your father!!!” you may just die laughing.
