Plot Summary:
"Dracula II: Ascension is a sequel to Dracula 2000, with the ageless vampire again returning from apparent extinction. The twist is that Dracula's blood will be used by a researcher (baroque performance by Craig Sheffer) to reverse the effects of a crippling disease; Sheffer's assistants (read: vampire fodder) will help. Joining this scientific survey is long-haired vampire slayer Jason Scott Lee, who seems to have stalked in from another picture--but never mind Roy Scheider, whose wizened priest might be onscreen for all of 60 seconds."

This sequel to Dracula 2000 has taken three years to get released here in the UK and I have no idea why, as it's a great sequel and a decent little movie all on its own.

The film begins with a dreamy opening sequence and then picks up where the first film ended as medical student Luke (Jason London) brings a body that had been found burning upon a cross into the morgue. His colleague Elizabeth begins examining the body and the two soon realize that they have a vampire on the slab. A phone call comes in and the mysterious caller offers them $30,000,000 for the body. The panicked friends ask their tutor for advice, and he tells them to take it to his parents' derelict house in the woods so that they can study it in an attempt to discover the secret to eternal life. This sets up an interesting story which plays out over 90 minutes of sick set pieces, in what is one of the most fun horror sequels I've seen in a good while.

The cast were all familiar faces and were very good here and it was nice to see that the smaller budget had no noticeable effect on the visual effects, as they were still of a very high standard.

The story is pretty good and the script has some great one liners which are well acted by the capable cast.

Dracula II Ascension is a solid follow up to a wonderful reimagining of a classic tale.
