Head on over to the script review
at CC2k. I know Paul's done some pretty crappy movies but man, talk about destroying the source material. I give you one quote from the review that should make any fan of the series angry.
"Gone is the epic struggle that spans generations between Dracula and the Belmont clan. Gone are the monstrous inhabitants of Castlevania such as mummies, Medusa, and Frankenstein’s monster that stand in the way of Simon’s quest. Gone even is the signature weapon of the Belmonts, the Vampire Killer – a sacred chain whip that is used so successfully to battle the forces of darkness"
