There’s that one moment in Dracula Untold, and if you saw the film you certainly know which one, that stands out as particularly badass. It features Dracula (Luke Evans) on the battlefield, ripping through the Turkish army, with the camera following him around in a single static shot, following a sword he throws into a man’s chest, and sticking right in it along with the blade. It’s a cool effect, but how did it come together?
That’s the subject of this CraveOnline exclusive clip from the Dracula Untold Blu-ray, available on February 3, 2015 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, including Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD with UltraViolet, as well as On Demand. Check it out!
