The genesis story of vampires (apparently), Dracula Untold, is hitting this Friday, and there are some new images to check out. This is a curious entrant in the vampire genre, especially at this point, because it’s hard to tell exactly where it’s going. The trailer doesn’t give away much, except for the initial game plan, and you don’t really get a great idea of the overall mood. Is this supposed to scare the hell out of you, or is this a kind of anti-hero drama? Who knows?

At any rate, any vampire in a storm is probably good enough to draw in a fair audience.

Check out all the looks below, but don’t expect them to clue in on what’s in store.

Almost an entire century after the world’s first cinematic introduction to Dracula placed audiences under his haunting spell, the studio that pioneered the genre reawakens one of legend’s most captivating figures in an action-adventure that heralds a pulse-pounding rebirth of the age of monsters.

Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, The Hobbit series) transforms from the cursed man history knows as Vlad the Impaler to an all-powerful creature of the night in Universal Pictures‘ Dracula Untold, the origin story of the alluring immortal we have come to fear as the sun sets: Dracula.
