"Sometimes the world needs a monster!" Vlad Tepes has been caught spilling the blood of an entire village, but explains away his behavior as necessary in a world where heroes no longer apply. The first clip from Dracula Untold finds Luke Evans making his case to a very angry Charles Dance as he defends his homeland from the evils of the world. Instead of being set free, Vlad comes face-to-face with what may be the world's first bloodsucking ghoul. Watch as Tepes tries to talk his way out of a very dire situation in this first look at the fall thriller, which arrives in theaters just in time for Halloween.

Dracula Untold explores the origin of Dracula, weaving vampire mythology with the true history of Prince Vlad the Impaler, depicting Dracula as a flawed hero in a tragic love story set in a dark age of magic and war.
