CULT OF DRACULA Movie Adaptation In The Works At BR Films

A feature adaptation of Second Sight Publishing's controversial 2021 comic series, Cult of Dracula, is in development at BR Films. Check out a statement from writer Rich Davis...

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that a feature adaptation of Second Sight Publishing's controversial 2021 comic series, Cult of Dracula, is in development at BR Films, the production team behind Dope Boy Magic, Monogamish, Crossover and The Last Call.

Rich Davis' horror series puts a fresh spin on the age-old tale, but not everyone was happy with the direction he took the story - or more specifically, the titular lord of the vampires.

Dracula was reimagined as a "svelte femme fatale with goat horns, bat-like wings and a serpent’s tail."

“From the beginning, I knew one thing. It may have been the only thing I 'knew', but I knew it in my bones. I would not tell another story about an Eastern European dude buying up all the real estate in Victorian London.” said Davis. “There’s just no need for that story to be told again. It’s been told so many times and so very, very well that I didn’t believe I could add anything to it.”

“Vampires don’t solely belong to the west," he continued. "They exist in virtually every human culture that has ever walked the face of the earth.” Davis says he drew inspiration from mythologies from all over the world to create his Dracula. “The Deer Woman from Cherokee legend. Jorogumo from Japan. Medusa from Ancient Greece. Kali from Hinduism. I took Dracula all the way back to Lilith and the Garden of Eden.”

Details on this live-action adaptation are few and far between, but the project is reportedly set to go into "immediate development," so we should learn more fairly soon.
