If Dracula Untold is meant to be the first one out of the gate for the planned rebooting of the Universal Monsters franchise, I for one am not going to be clamouring for more. Set in the 15th Century, it’s a stodgy, visually drab, instantly forgettable reworking of Bram Stoker’s novel in the action-centred Underworld/I, Frankenstein vein, with Fast and Furious 6 villain Luke Evans starring as Drac, a Transylvanian prince who makes a pact with a cave-dwelling demon (Charles Dance) for some handy dark magic to protect his family and people against the evil clutches of Turk Sultan Mehmed II (Dominic Cooper).

Dull origin story about history's most famous vampire suggests some tales are indeed best left untold.

This cursory reboot adopts the mirth-free mythology tactic beloved of modern superhero ventures.

Suggests someone must have looked at every previous version of the material and thought: "You know what? Dracula needs to be more likeable".

You’d be hard pressed to identify with any previous version of Dracula.

This misconceived project mainly signals a need to go back to the drawing board.

Armour-clanging, cloak-swishing tosh with okay battles, terrible dialogue and sadly little horror or heroism.
