It’s on FXM TV – Fox Movie Channel 6:30pm CT and 8:25pm CT tonight – Wednesday 28 June 2017. I’ve seen it once before and it is excellent. I’m reporting it here because of the true history it ties in with.
About 500 years ago Christians fought an earlier version of ISIS trying to establish a caliphate. Vlad the Impaler was a Christian hero fighting the Muslims. Bram Stoker based his character Dracula on Vlad the Impaler. The History Channel did a special on Vlad the Impaler from which I learned more about him. Watch it for Free at YouTube.
The 2014 movie Dracula Untold is an interesting mixture of the real person Vlad and the fictional Dracula…
“A Romanian knight fights to defend his homeland against Turkish invaders. Faced with overwhelming odds, he enters into a dangerous bargain to gain supernatural powers so he can drive off his enemies – but the deal could cost him his humanity as he transforms into a terrifying monster. Fantasy adventure, starring Luke Evans, Dominic Cooper and Charles Dance.”
