Okay, given the plethora of bad Dracula adaptations and NBC's history of being terrible, I did not expect NBC's 10-episode Dracula series to look so... awesome. I definitely didn't expect all that blood, either.

As this new trailer shows, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers makes a nicely intimidating Dracula, although he is kind of a messy eater. We've also got vampire hunter ladies with axes, severed limbs tossed casually at waitstaff, and a shockingly decent budget, given all those fashions and crowds and cars. Clearly this won't be the most accurate Dracula when it airs in October, but it still looks like a lot of fun.
