DRACULA THE STORY
A DARK AND THRILLING REBOOT
21st CENTURY AUDIENCE.
Vlogs, Instagram posts, Snapchat messages, CCTV, Skype calls, TV news reports, Twitter feeds, Facebook and other media have been painstakingly gathered and edited to reveal the true story of the incredible events that befell a group of teenage friends living ordinary lives in an ordinary seaside town...
He loves Lucy and his loss will break his heart.
Our Heroine. Feisty, clever, imaginative. She will have to dig deep to save her soul.
Loves Mina but tormented by his experiences in Romania.
Kind, loving and beautiful. She is the first victim.
Hedonist. Joker. Drinker. Smoker and trainee doctor.
Handsome. Ladies man. Vlogger. Confident, loyal and ready for action.
Mina and her friends live a joyful, carefree existence in a small seaside town. Doing what they love most; skateboarding, surfing and having fun.
But everything changes when
a Russian ghost ship
crashes onto the local beach.
A huge dog is seen leaping from the ship. A pet dog is mauled to death. Cheerful cabbie, Dave, is horrifically murdered.
Dracula is a loathsome, undead creature. Preying on the living for his survival.
Feeding on the blood of the living. He is a predator.
He must keep feeding or his body will decay.
Fully fed he takes on a youthful, androgynous human form.
Or a parasitic mist.
A shapeshifter. He can take on the form of a wild dog.
Dracula has arrived and has his predatory sights on Lucy.
Lucy falls ill after sleepwalking through the town. When Lucy's boyfriend Art and the others witness Lucy's shocking, violent death from a mystery illness, Jay realises it is Dracula's handiwork.
Now he must convince his friends of what is really happening with the help of kooky Dutch Professor Avrahana Van Helsing.
Professor Avrahana Van Helsing
But as Van Helsing asks...
WHO WILL BELIEVE THEM?
NO ONE WILL.
They have no one to turn to. They must deal with this nightmare individually and as a group. They must do things they never imagined possible. And they must record everything.
Lucy has become an undead creature of the night, attacking and feeding from the living. To save her soul from Dracula the gang must track her down, drive a stake through her heart and ritually dismember her.
The Gang think the fight is over but they couldn't be more wrong. Their actions enrage Dracula and he strikes at Mina, forces her to drink his blood, thus ensuring that she will become one of his undead slaves. The only way to save Mina is to track down Dracula and destroy him.
THE HUNTED BECOME THE HUNTERS
It is a frantic chase. The clock is ticking - Mina is transforming into a vampire. They must find Dracula before he leaves the country and destroy him or Mina will be lost. Mina’s growing mental connection with Dracula finally leads them to his hiding place.
In a terrifying, adrenaline-rush of a finale Mina's friends must track down Dracula and kill him before nightfall. But daylight - and time - is running out.
As the sun sets, Dracula rises. The friends are impotent against his power but Mina, choosing between Jay and Dracula, dispatches Dracula with a thundering blow from a crucifix.
