Vampiress Review: "Saint Dracula 3D"

The Gist: Dracula sets his sites on a young woman who is about to become a nun.

Clarification:  This is apparently director Rupesh Paul's attempt at telling a Dracula story as if it was a Shakespeare play.  Specifically it's a Shakespeare style romantic tragedy.  One that consists of Dracula raping nuns in the middle of the night.  The movie is ridiculously hard to follow because it is formatted like a play with scenes cut together with really nothing tying them in.  Basically a scene starts and you have to wait until you get enough info from the dialogue to be able to place what's going on and where it lays in the timeline of the film.

Selling Point:  If you've been looking for a 3D Dracula film without those scary giant praying mantises in it.  This is the one for you.

Female Vampire Factor:  Dracula does have a "Bride" (she's more like a henchperson really).  She's seen as his snack in the films first half hour.  Spurts some fangs and pretty much disappears after that.  She's played by actress Anna Passey.
 This is the only time you see her fangs to my recollection.  She actually does attack a few people in the films very beginning but you really don't see the attacks just her showing up then the shot changing and her victim screaming.
 Since she exists and is attractive it's enough to give it a vampire beauty rating of 2 out of 5
