As a disclaimer, I am warning you this article is a personal frustration towards the entire myth of my culture, it is the devil in me going out in the sunlight. No shining, though.

Obviously, what I’m writing about is movie Dracula Untold, but moreover, about how a small population’s historical legend is portrayed in a wrong way. (for the record, yes, I am Romanian, and my name has nothing to do with CeausESCU, the guy we murdered 26 years ago)

Question us about the legends, the stories, the mothers of all our problems or achievements, our struggles, our happiness, but just don’t let a Hollywood movie depict a gruesome image of how we actually are and where we come from.

P.S. And if you really want to see a good, close-to-the-original movie about Vlad the Impaler, check this one — it’s Romanian made, in 1979, but it’s awesome and it reflects much better probably everything I just wrote about. If you have troubles finding it… send me a message. ☺
