RE. this movie's site

This movie's site has an interesting Vlad Tepes history page:

http://www.vladthemovie.com/html/history.htm#1

Obviously the movie was a flop. Otherwise a lot more people would have heard about it

"Synopsis:

Whether or not one believes vampires ever existed, the blood-curdling fact is that in 15th Century Romania, Vlad The Impaler launched a reign of terror so horrific, literally skewering countless victims through the body and skull, that he is viewed by many as the source of the vampire 'myth.'

Now four foreign exchange students, at the behest of a Bucharest professor (Brad Dourif), dare to enter the draconian heart of Vlad Drakul's dark past. Suspected by their Romanian guide (Billy Zane), one of the students secretly possesses the rumored necklace buried in Vlad's tomb, an evil so powerful it can transcend time and space.

Warning to all: Sometimes it's best to let sleeping wolves lie, or discover, too late ... there are things worse than death. "

This semi documentary/semi artistic movie approach, is probably what doomed the movie.

Oh well. Maybe a more real/historical approach could have done the trick, such as Braveheart.
