“We didn’t see that”
The film’s director recently opened up to Bloody Disgusting about what led her to adapt Blair Butler’s screenplay:
“That was for me, the origin story of Dracula’s Bride. That’s what grabbed me because we didn’t see that. We’ve done Dracula so many times; let’s do the brides. There are new stories that we want to see and want to know… It’s more of a point of inspiration than trying to stay true to the book or tell it.
She added, “We have some of the characters and some of the character names popping up, and I think those are nice little Easter eggs for the real Dracula fans. But I hope people are open-minded when they come in because we’ve put a modern spin on these characters.
The Invitation is in theaters now.
