Van Helsing TV Show: More Like Walking Dead Than Dracula?

Since the upcoming Van Helsing television series features a vampire apocalypse, many expect that it is going to be more like Dracula. However, critics say it actually has more similarities with shows like The Walking Dead.

Sources claim that the majority of the vampires from Van Helsing act as if they are zombies. They don?t look like vampires from Dracula, like how they should be. Instead, their faces are always in shifting degree and they eat their victims as if they are zombies from the The Walking Dead. There are too much grunting and slurping, which many finds inappropriate.

Vampires are expected to be posh. But most of these so-called vampires in Van Helsing do not look aristocratic that even Dracula might deny them as his brethren.

Nevertheless, the plot and the performances of Overton and Scarfe, along with other cast members are fairly enough reasons to see the upcoming series.
