One thousand years into the future, and somewhere in the far reaches of outer space, a terrifying legend lives on. Its the year 3000 AD. A salvage ship on a routine interstellar mission discovers the drifting, silent hulk of the off-world space transporter Demeter, reported missing 100 years earlier. Excited by the prospects of quick financial gain from towing back and trading in the old vessel, Mina, Van Helsing and the rest of their crew boldly board the abandoned ship, hoping to recover any valuable freight left onboard. But as they explore its cold, empty passageways, they become aware of a terrible secret. First Mina uncovers Demeters mysterious cargo - 50 long, black coffins. Then, one by one the crew begins to disappear or turn against one another, until there can be no doubt that an ancient curse lives on in the bowels of this once-great ship, awaiting its next victim. In the blackness of space the sun never rises, the ideal environment for the immortal vampire to spread his evil. For the survivors, the only hope for salvation is a desperate race across the universe, rocketing at the speed of light, praying that theyll reach the welcoming rays of the Twin Suns of Halbron...before its too late.

Please don't waste your money on this sorry excuse for a motionpicture. The only way I could see someone watching this is if they area die-hard fan of Erika Elaniak, but you would be better off surfingthe internet than to watch this piece of crap. I would rather watchpaint dry than go through watching this. They lure you in with Casper and Erika and lead you to believe it is asci-fi Dracula movie, but it quickly works out to be a farce about VanHelsing's great-great (you get the point) grandson, here ironically forone last show-down between himself and Dracula.The movie also tries to make a political statement, I believe, when itappears that none of the characters in the future know who God is, thatthey have not been taught about him and don't understand when they seea cross. Could have done a lot more with this idea. It's a shame itturned out the way it did.
This movie is a totally waste of time. Dracula is a nerd.. and thatname count Orlock comes from a German black & white movie called"Nosferatu" (1922).1)Why use "Orlock" and not "Dracula" since every one has forgotten"Nosferatu".2)It's (I think) the first time that Van Helsing becomes a vampire andhe dies3)What's with that pink lenses...(?)4)C'mon my Grandpa is more scarier than this Dracula5)Is this a thriller, action or comedy? (I think they don't even know)6)Low budget movie with awful casting (I mean Coolio for vampire? andsaying all the time "Dude" & "Brotha"...)7)The ending was awfulÂ (I wasn't expecting more to be honest..) 1/10from me
...and that's saying something. The plot is mind-bogglingly stupid, thedialog sounds like it was made up on the spot, and I have to concludethat the production ran out of money before they were done filming.Notable scenes are missing: things like the climactic fight between thehero and the villain, and the ending. They even ran out of music beforethey ran out of credits. It's as though somebody played a session of"It Came From The Late Late Late Show" and filmed the result.If this is a parody of B movies, it's brilliant! But I think they wereserious. The only redeeming features are the performances of TinyLister and Coolio, who did give me a few laughs.
This is my first comment on a movie in here. I have to say that of allthe bad films I ever seen, including Braindead for an example, this isreally WORSE! I promise. Don't even look at it. It is boring, badacting, bad script and plot, bad effects the whole movie is one bigpiece of crap! If I could I would give 0 stars out of 10, but since thelowest is 1 which is awful, I need to vote that. But I would say themovie is worse than awful.Don't pain yourself by seeing this movie and hoping it will get betterbecause I can tell you already now, it wont! I hoped that there mightwould come one single scene which would be worth watching. There didn'tcame any good scene at all. What an excellent piece of crap. And Coolio as a vampire? LOL! LMAO! YARGH!
This is perhaps one of if not the worst movies I've ever seen. Nosuspense, no character development, the worse acting to ever grace ascreen. This movie was not scary in the least.I really can't say much about this dreadful film. I think the plot wasa rip-off of Alien but deals with a vampire in space. I've never fallenasleep watching any movie for the first time, but this one was soboring and awful that I can't say much else. It's a good thing I saw iton TV for free. I know they had to edit for television, but even ifthis had been unedited it would've been bad.For anybody who was tricked into paying to see this movie, I truly amsorry you had to witness this crap. Oh the horror!!!!
Every second comment about this movie from IMDb users is in CAPITALLETTERS and pushing that it's not a sequel to Dracula 2000.Dracula 2000... and it's proper sequels... had Wes Craven's name allover the poster and DVD jacket. Any self-proclaimed "lovers" of B-filmsshould have put it together that this is not a sequel. "Dracula 2000",despite the name, was not a futuristic film. This clearly is.Everyone please stop commenting that it's not the sequel to Dracula2000. It's been said once, that's enough. Anyone who has the deductivereasoning of a perpetually astonished, rookie investigator from a bad,70's cop film deserves to lose five bucks on renting this with theexpectations of another Wes Craven opus.And Coolio never sucks... ever. That's a rule. But I'll agree to anynegative comments on Casper Van Dien. I knew what I was renting and Ienjoyed this trash.
Too bad I can't give negative stars. There are 80 min of my life that I will never get back. Where did they get that "Dracula" from, horrible actor. Coolio was hilarious though as a vampire on dope. But nothing scary about this movie or entertaining. And where is the ending??? It could have been a interesting story and I would like to see it with a better script.
Oh WOW! What a great film! You get a standing ovation. The best part, and I love this, was the way THEY TRICKED ALL THE "Dracula 2000" fans into renting it, thinking it was a sequel!!! Great job guys. Oh, and how did they ever get Coolio off of his world wide singing tour to guest star in this movie? Great Job guys. It really brought back memories of my youthful gangster days and that great "Dangerous Minds" soundtrack. I'm glad to see he is still smoking it up for the homies. I wonder if they'll be able to get Britney Spears for Dracula 4000. (Or they could rip off other titles from vampire films like "Blade" or call it "Buffy 3000.") Oh and what a twist in the middle of the show with the blonde girl (I'm not going to give it away for you people who like to torture yourself). I never saw that coming. Casper Van Dien starring in this film. He was the director's first choice. Van Damme was turned down I heard. He really wanted it bad. Oh, and they got that big cross-eyed guy who used to beat up Hulk Hogan in wrestling. He is so funny in this. HAHAHAdd
This movie was not as good as I had hoped it would be. I like ErikaEleniak and she looks great (must be body building). She was the reasonI watched it. It had none of what one would expect of a vampire movie.There was no suspense, no action, and the premise made no sense.Maybe if Dracula, came from a planet that was dying and he and a fewvamps showed away on the ship to search for a planet like maybe Earthto re generate their kind. Just one vamp and a crew member turned intohis slave was not enough for the rest of them to fear. More vamps wouldhave been better. Also, a larger crew would have been nice. Not ahundred but maybe more than five people.I would have liked to have seen more action and suspense and mayberomance. We did get it in the end however with Aurora.I don't blame the actors as much I blame who ever wrote the script.The end with Aurora and the remaining male crew member was OK.I would give this movie a C.
Okay I admit, I'm one of the few people on this earth that trulybelieves that, if you take a horror movie icon from his or her stompinggrounds & put them into space, that it does not mean that the series isin trouble. HELLRAISER 4 was not all that great, but at least it tried,it worked better for Jason than all the other icons in JASON X sincethey had the right writers, but for CRITTERS 4 it didn't work &LEPRECHAUN 4 was okay but he didn't really fit into space either. Wellafter viewing Dracula 3000 I can now add the Count to that list ofhorror movie icons who should not have visited space. The film openswith a space crew, investigating a ship that has been lost for 100years. Amongest a dead body & lots of dust, they find 50 coffins all ofthem filled with sand, except one which holds our pointy toothedanti-hero. From there on in, the film dis-ingrates faster than avampire in sunlight (Yes pun intended) As it turns out the captain ofthe ship is none other than one of Van Helsing's relatives (I know,what are the odds?) & he must prevent the crew from becoming vampires.Despite the title, Dracula is only in the film for about 15 minutestops & he does not do anything but talk low & run around the ship.COOLIO turning into a rapper vampire was pretty painful to watch aswell & The ending is extremely disappointing, in fact, there was noending so to speak. The only stand out point for me was that the mainhero Van Helsing, gets turned into a vampire by Dracula, which is achange from the norm, while a female robot & some muscular dark guy areleft to fight him & whatever remaining vampires that are on the ship.They could have made a fun movie here, But alas, there's no adrenalinerush or life so to speak in this movies veins! Even die hard Vampirefans will be disappointed!* star
I love vampire movies especially Dracula films! I was a fan of the recent two Dracula's (Dracula 2000 and Dracula II) and when I saw Dracula 3000 at the video store I couldn't wait to see it! I thought the cover looked pretty cool especially with the modified H.R. Giger look, but I later found out it had nothing to do with this movie!Anyway, Dracula 3000 is not part of this series and is the worst low budget B movie I've ever seen! It truly was a waste of my time and I'm glad I didn't buy it as an addition to my Dracula collection!! The only good thing about the movie was that it was a free rental!I did find the true Dracula III: Legacy at the site listed below! There also is a trailer... It looks great!http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/film.php?id=531
I can not come up with the words to describe how terrible this movie is. I actually enjoy bad horror movies, especially SyFy originals, but this movie is just awful. I can normally sit through anything, no matter how bad, but vampire Coolio is absolutely the worst thing I have ever seen committed to film and I mean that with every fiber of my being. I am not attempting to be funny, ironic or dramatic with these statements. Avoid this piece of garbage at all costs.
This is a gorgeous tale of taboo and innuendo in the grim andmechanical world of science fiction. Dracula is fabulously portrayed in foppish Victorian manner; I was SOglad to see this fashion endure into the next century. Very metrosexualsophisticate! Delicate, yet manly. Candy pink lip gloss will never die!Of course, Dracula has a thing for Coolio...WHO DOESN'T? Someday, I too hope to have Coolio dancing and slinking at my feet, inskintight, futuristic leather... calling me "Master," and asking how hecan serve me.The naughty things he said to the vinyl-clad she-male just made memelt. (sigh...)I recommend this for anyone who has ever fantasized about spacevampires or Coolio.
How do some things even get made.This movie looks like it was shot in the basement of a old officebuilding. The acting was just terrible. Coolio (and we should have seenthis one coming) was over the top.Good Science Fiction has a future that has a character all of its own.This one just seems like these people are from our century and are justplopped down in the middle of this ridiculous scenario. I mean, whatwere they thinking? Do you really think people will still be listeningto rap music in 1000 years? Consider this. Dracula's goal is to get off of the planet Transylvania,and to somewhere he can get fresh blood. Then he turns around and killseveryone on the ship, which leaves him stranded for the next fiftyyears. Duh... that wasn't very bright.Except that if everyone he bit becomes a vampire, then where are allthe other vampires? Was anyone thinking this thing through at all.
I can usually watch dribble and I usually enjoy any vampire movie, butthis was HORRIBLE!!! The only reason I kept watching this is to see ifit could get worse.Imagine a movie set in outer space with Dracula and descendant of VanHelsing which goes no where.Add to that a past Playboy playmate and absolutely no nudity to offsetthe bad acting !!??!!And (sorry for this spoiler but I really feel it's my duty to tell you)in the end EVERYBODY dies!!!Rent Napolean Dynamite instead ;-)
Over the years, many horror icons have ventured to outer space. JasonVorhees, Pinhead, the Leprechaun, and the Critters have all had theirchance to terrorize space goers. Now it's Dracula's turn to wreak havocin deep space. Casper Van Dien plays Van Helsing, the captain of asalvage crew. Also aboard is his hottie right hand (Erika Eleniak),giant leg-breaker (Tiny 'Zeus' Lister), and drugged up '187' (Coolio).They discover a space ship called 'The Demeter'. Upon investigation,they uncover such odd things as a room full of crucifixes and a cargobay full of coffins. In between scenes, Udo Kier pops up via videoscreen and rambles on about an epidemic. That's the basis of the plotand sadly, that's as interesting as it gets. Every actor here is wastedon a pathetic script, save for Coolio, who hams it up in every scenehe's in. The guy who plays Dracula is a total bore and is about asfrightening as Count Chocula. The only surprise in the film is theending, which simply comes out of nowhere. The best thing about thisfilm is the cover art of the video box, which thankfully, invokes thespirit of H.R. Giger. I give this film 2/10.
Wow, there's a lot of venom directed at this movie, and a lot of it isdeserved, but it's not the WORST movie of all time. (That's probably"Zoolander".)Anyway, if you're high on something, really drunk, or just in the moodfor a "B-minus- minus" movie that you can make fun of, this may be yourcup of tea.Yes, as others said, the first part of the movie makes you think you'rewatching an updating of the Bram Stoker novel. Two of the maincharacters are named Van Helsing and Mina, the ship is the Demeter, andthey're in the Carpathian galaxy. You later find that Van Helsing is adescendant of the original, and he just happens to be on a ship in the30th century with Dracula. Suuuuuuuuuuure.Oh yeah, and to add to the originality, this "spooky ghost ship" moviehas another character named Ash. Sound familiar?There's paper-thin character development and anachronisms like theaforementioned manual wheelchair, and Coolio and Tom Lister talking20th century black slang. But what really makes the movie ridiculous isthe ending. If THAT's what happens to the characters, then the previoustwo hours have been a waste.Like I said, it you want a dumb movie to play "Mystery Science Theater"with, and your mind is in approximately the same mode required forviewing the "Great Vegetable Rebellion" episode of LOST IN SPACE, thenyou may find this diverting. Otherwise, put a stake in it, it's done.
The tale they made was quiet nice, but the way they created the moviesucked really hard. Something like this: 1) It was meant to make thefirst vampire ever on earth and sky (atleast in here) the most fastestvampire ever, what they do with the camera was this. see him walk, shutdown the camera's and start when the character was at the end of thetunnel.It looked so bad. and when some actions where happening and I.E. theprofessor got scared (again) it was like.. "owh Bollox" and the cameracame fast close to his face..This whole movie looks so fake that even the girls for I.E. 5 years oldwouldn't get any nightmares!But I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 because of the story they created,this movie deserves some better special effects and better actors!
Oh dear Gods, this is awful. Stay away, just stay away. If you thinkyou've seen bad movies, think again. Never before has my brain hurt asmuch as it did after I watched this movie. The acting, if it is allowedto be called that, is enough to cause internal bleedings inside yourhead. The story is so thin it is just barely there... no wait, scratchthat. There is not a complete story there, but once in a while, thereis a few thin lines that stick up from all the amount of horribleness,and believe me, those few lines should have been shot. The best way toenjoy this movie is to drop napalm on it, and watch the cozy fire froma distance.Some may call me sarcastic in this review, but I am only trying tospare some of you of a serious headache. However, should you be, what Ilike to call, a visual masochist (like myself), please, go right aheadand watch this monstrosity.
A space ship cruising through the galaxy encounters a mysterious cargoship apparently adrift in space. The crew investigates, hoping to layclaim to its cargo and acquire the ship. However, once aboard theominous vessel, their own ship mysteriously disengages, leaving them tofend for themselves and battle none other then Count Dracula or Orloffas this creature calls himself.Not a bad start. I mean it follows any number of typical sci-fi/horrorplots. The genres have been around enough that even the most originalstory will inevitably invoke comparison to some other film. But, whenyou start with a fairly typical horror convention, the legend ofDracula and vampires in general, and combine it with a fairly typicalsci-fi convention, a crew happening upon something and becomingmarooned to battle whatever they're forced to confront, the filmmakersbetter have some clever up their sleeve to imprint their own mark onthe familiar genre staples.Director Darrell Roodt, who also wrote Dracula 3000 with IvanMilborrow, is primarily responsible for this utter failure. So, no,Roodt and Milborrow have nothing up their sleeves but their arms.This film begins ominously enough, with a very poorly delivered voiceover by Caspar Van Dien, essentially providing enough exposition toexplain who the crew on his ship are. I should also point out that VanDien's character is named Van Helsing. And, oh so very cleverly, thisOrloff character is from planet Transylvania in the Carpathian System.No kidding. I mean, come on guys, we get it. And, again, don't be goofyand use such names unless you got something special in store.So, after Van Helsing's introduction of the crew, we have, essentially,a film about this crew trapped in a space ship with a vampire lurkingabout.I'm a very forgiving viewer when it comes to low budget films.Occasionally, they can be brilliant, see Raimi's first two Evil Deadfilms. Dracula 3000 had a decent budget, enough for some decent specialeffects and for the salaries of 3rd stringers like, Van Dien, ErikaEleniak, Coolio, etc. However, unlike, the EVIL DEAD flicks, there isno talent behind the camera. In front of the camera, the talent ismarginal, but I'm going to give the actors some benefit of the doubt.It really seems like they don't know what to do. The best actor of thebunch, Alexandra Kamp-Groenveld, gets killed off quickly and theever-enjoyable Udo Kier is reduced to being an exposition vehicle forthe viewer as the deceased captain we hear and see via a video journal.Grant Swandby is also okay as the Professor, but it's hard to takeseriously a scientist in the year 3000 who wears glasses and rides awheel chair. And, yes, it's a WHEEL chair as in there is nothingfuturistic about it. As for the rest of the actors, wellÂ Â .I'm sureCoolio really tried to be scary after getting turned into a vampire,but, well, I don't think irritating qualifies as scary in most people'sbook. Tiny Lister and Erika Eleniak don't really provide much either.Lister is never really more then the IL' big brawny black stereotype.Eleniak actually appears unhappy throughout the film and never triesvery hard. Eleniak is a pretty girl, even in her mid thirties, butlooks a little worn out and uninterested for the movie's duration.This brings us to Count Dracula/Orloff played by Langley Kirkwood. Tobe honest, I can't recall who exactly the vampire is supposed to be. Heintroduces himself as Orloff but at some point he acknowledges himselfas Count Dracula as well. Go figure. In any case, you will beabsolutely astounded by just how lame this vampire is. Have you everscene those cheesy horror show hosts local networks would have on theircreature feature time slots? Yes, it's that bad. Langley Kirkwood, theactor playing Orlock, must have found it almost impossible toconcentrate in such a ridiculous outfit. I'm sure he's still gettinghassled by his friends.There isn't much to the plot. The vampire is the last of it's kind andwants to go to Earth, for some reason, and also, there is some lipservice about wanting to defeat Caspar Van Dien's character, VanHelsing. Most of the crew get turned into vampires, including VanHelsing, and the crew use conventional machine guns and pistols to tryand defeat them before they figure out the old stake in the heartroutine. Yeah, that's right, bullets, and yes, the year 3000. Keepingin that baffling vein, one of the main areas the crew hole themselvesup in while battling the vampires, or vampire, since there is reallynever more then one threatening them, is filled with old Soviet postersand insignia and such. What the? There are also references toGod/religion being antiquated systems. But these references onlyconfused me. Did the Soviet Union make a comeback? Is there some pointRoodt and Milborrow want to make with this? It never really goesanywhere, seems dumb and the posters, etc. just look cheap.On the positive side, the film is competently shot and edited. Thecinematography is nothing spectacular, but it's clearly done byprofessionals and, I had no problem with the special effects. The shipslook like ships in outer space. Although, as I write this, I recall howgod awful the corpse of the captain looks when the crew discover him.What were they thinking? Why didn't someone say something? See howdifficult it is to say something positive about this film withoutfalling back on the negatives? I guess, ultimately, that's the thing.Whatever positives you try and grant this sci-fi/horror debacle, youbecome overwhelmed by it's lack of quality.Poor Udo Kier.
