Not too many first time filmmakers can boast collating such an esteemed cast for such an ambitious project in their debut endeavour, but Gary Shore most certainly can, as be brings the origin story of Dracula to the big screen.

We had the pleasure of speaking to Shore about Dracula Untold, and what it is about this particular literary creation that has such an appeal to both cinephiles, and filmmakers alike. He also tells us about shooting the film in Northern Ireland, how he got his best mate a role in the movie, and what his plans are for the future.

Dracula Untold is in cinemas now.
