365 Days- Day 43

movie: Dracula 3 Legacy
starring: Jason Scott Lee, Jason London
genre: Drama
year: 2005
format: DVD

plot: Five years after the events of the first two films, we find Uffizi and Luke in Romania, in the heart of Transylvania, hunting for Dracula and trying to save Elizabeth. What they find is a group of rebels and a civil war everyone believes is being run by a drug lord. A missing news reporter joins the two men as they journey to one of Dracula's old castles where he's hiding in plan sight.

Once again, the actor playing Dracula has been recast, with Rutger Hauer playing him.
The drug references hit a peak when the heroes finally storm the castle and find Elizabeth in a pit with other vampires, all feeding off each other in a euphoric state. Dracula comments that this is because these vampires still had some of their humanity and could not bring themselves to feed off of humans, but that this would lead to complete madness for them.
There is a scene at the end, where Uffizi drinks from Dracula, taking into himself the very essence of him. Thus becoming another reincarnation of Dracula. 

Other then saying how much I liked this film and the series, the only thing I can really comment on is the question that both sequels bring up from Dracula 2000, and that's if at the end of the first movie the character of Mary said she had the remains of Dracula in a tomb, then how did he end up in the morgue in part two?  I've always wondered that.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Sometimes, having faith in something means turning our backs on the people who gave us that first reason to believe.
