Review of "Castlevania" 7/15/17 by Suzanne
Season One Airs now on Netflix

Loosely based on a video game, this is a really great animated TV series. Normally, I don't watch any animated TV shows, unless they're about superheroes (or if they're really funny, like Family Guy). However, this one is just fantastic. It's like reading a really good comic book. There are many outstanding actors voicing the characters, too.

A woman goes to visit Dracula in his castle to learn about healing. They fall in love, but then she's burned at the stake by the village of Wallachia for being a witch. Dracula takes his revenge on the village, and a vampire hunter tries to stop him.

You should definitely watch this one, especially if you like shows that are about fantasy or the supernatural. It's just very well done in every way. The art is amazing, and the story is top notch. I can't wait for season two!


Castlevania is an American adult animated web television series based on the 1989 video game Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse by Konami. The series follows Trevor Belmont, who defends the nation of Wallachia from Dracula and his minions.


When his wife is burned at the stake after being falsely accused of witchcraft, the vampire Count Vlad Dracula Tepes declares all the people of Wallachia will pay with their lives. His army of monsters and demons overruns the country, causing the people to live lives of fear and distrust. To combat this, the disgraced demon hunter Trevor Belmont takes up arms against Dracula's forces, aided by the magician Sypha Belnades and Dracula's son Alucard.


  • Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont, the last living member of the Belmont clan, a disgraced family of monster hunters.[4]
  • James Callis as Adrian Tepes, also known as Alucard, the dhampir son of Dracula and Lisa Tepes, who seeks to protect humanity from his father.[4]
  • Graham McTavish as Vlad Dracula Tepes, a vampire who swears vengeance on humanity for the death of his wife Lisa, summoning an army of monsters to destroy all the people of Wallachia.[4]
  • Alejandra Reynoso as Sypha Belnades, a Speaker and the Elder's granddaughter who wields powerful magic.[4]
  • Tony Amendola as The Elder, the leader of a group of Speakers aiding the people of Gresit whom Trevor befriends.[4]
  • Matt Frewer as The Bishop, a clergyman who orders the burning of Lisa Tepes for witchcraft, later being named the bishop of Gresit.[4]
  • Emily Swallow as Lisa Tepes, Dracula's beloved wife who is burned at the stake for witchcraft.
