    You know I was watching Grundy's Night yesterday, it's funny how Bruce is so dismissive of swamp zombies but he's got no problem believing in vampires.

    That said, this DTV is far more enjoyable then anything with a "vs" in the title has any bussiness being. It's by far the best thing to come out of this incarnation of Batman.

    At least I agree that this was the point when I started to realize the show had something to offer. There were some solid season 4 episodes as well, but Batman Vs. Dracula was leaps and abounds above season 1. Even the Penguin (one of my least favorite The Batman characters) was reasonably well used.

    Absolutely, although it still has its problems (largely stupid dialogue that spells everything out for the viewer, the worst version of Alfred ever).

    Well Batman did take a scientific approch to Vampires even if he did accept them too easily.

    Basicly this is the best you can get with The Batman (Ok I like Strange new Wrold from season four more) but even then it has the same problems that plagued this series from day one.

    I fanwank that Grundy's Night takes places before BvD.

    Anyway, I agree that this DTV proved to me that the Batman series had legs. I was actually creeped out by the Joker in the blood bank scene. I don't think I've ever seen a creepier moment in kid's cartoon.

    The Batman Vs. Dracula is great! I love The Batman series, but even those who don't should check this out. Yeah, this isn't Timm-verse Batman, but it's not trying to be and should be given the chance it deserves. This DTV feature and the TV series are both a lot better than what people give credit for.

    As has been pointed out on the main page, this movie will be airing as the Friday Night Movie on the 30th on Teletoon. Because the previous Sunday (25th) will be a Halloween-themed movie marathon day, Action Force will be pre-empted by the movie as well.

    I just watched this last night, and I gotta say that I loved it. I was never a huge fan of The Batman series, but this was very well executed. Rino Romano, to me at least, fits this young incarnation of Batman. They do a very good job developing Bruce's character through dreams and flashbacks. The stuff with his parents was very touching, and I really enjoyed it. Vicki Vale worked nicely off of Bruce as well.

    Yeah, I dislike their versions of Penguin and Joker, but Dracula was a great villain. He was more than a match for the Dark Knight, and really upped the threat level ante for Batman.

    I read some earlier posts that said this movie was lacking emotional depth. I don't see that at all. When Batman thinks Joker dies, you really see his grief. Like I also said, when he dreams about his parents death a few times, that really hits home as well. Very solid film. I would give it 4.5/5 stars.

    If I were to rank the solo Batman DTVs that we've gotten, I would say miles ahead of Gotham Knight and Mystery of the Batwoman and definitely better than Sub-zero. It's no Mask of the Phantasm, Return of the Joker, or Under the Red Hood, but it's still damn good.

    I totally agree. The Batman Vs. Dracula is my fourth favorite Batman animated movie, too, behind Mask of the Phantasm, Return of the Joker, and Under the Red Hood.

    Drac is pure evil in this movie. Want to know how evil? He's so evil, he stole the latest episode of Young Justice from us.

    Seriously though, this movie is a lot of fun. Anything that starts from the premises "what if Batman fought Dracula" is either going to be really silly or really cool. Fortunately this movie maneges to lean more in the direction of cool.

    I think what makes this story work is that it really sells you on the idea of Dracula as a dark reflection of Batman.

    Saw this for the first time, and I must say, I enjoyed it. It did have a lot of the aspects I disliked about the Batman (mainly the guitar track and the normally steallar Tom Kenny as the Penguin), but the good outweighed the bad. The voice actors who played Vicki and Dracula were perfect.

    Funny, I wonder why poor Vicki never showed up in the TV series after the movie?

    ::reading my comments from 6 years ago:: Did Drac's skull ever show up in the Batcave? I can't recall (and think probably not).

    He truly is the greatest evil in the entire DCU. They asked him to join the Light, but he declined because they were too soft (and also, ya know, since Dracula isn't big on light).

    That's a good question. She would've been a welcome addition!

    To be honest, I always found the film very meh. A Batman film with vampires could have been handled so much better. To be fair, it has been about a year or two since I last saw this film, so maybe it warrants a re-watch, but I just couldn't get excited watching it.

    Penguin got some good lines, but otherwise...

    I didn't like the villain, and the rest of the dialogue was only okay. The fight scenes could have been better also. And Joker (who is one of my favorite DC villain) gets no justice at all. He looks very bad in this film.

    A surprisingly dark and violent film for The Batman series. Dracula really was a force to be reckoned with. He was a great counterpart to Bruce; especially when he mentioned about striking fear into the hearts of the innocence, which was never Batman's intent. It's great to finally see Vicki Vale and her being Bruce's love interest.

    Spoiler:
    I found the scene where Joker got shocked by his own joybuzzer after falling into the water to be really creepy and chilling.

    I liked the animation and the action sequences but there just wasn't really enough to it. I mean when you try and sum up the plot with the resurrection of Dracula and him turning everyone into vampires it sounds like loads happens but the whole thing is so slow and plodding, it really needed a re-edit.

    Also vampire Joker.

    I finally watch this movie again two weeks ago, after 3 years since the last time... it's good enough of a stop-gap between the seasons, but it's definitely not going to go down as a classic. I found my finger pressing the forward button an awful lot, cause it was a rather dull watch
