Netflix’s ‘Castlevania’ Trailer Introduces Man Who Whipped Dracula to Death

This first trailer for Netflix’s animated Castlevania opens on a live-action shot of a Nintendo cartridge being fed into an original NES. It’s a none-too-subtle indication that, yes, this is yet another video game making the ill-fated transition to the screen. Castlevania‘s adaptation has taken the form of a streaming, heavily anime-informed series about video game icon Simon Belmont and his mission to whip vampires. It’s also said to be “R-rated as fuck,” though outside of a brief splatter of blood, you don’t really get much of a taste of that here. Looks like we’ll have to wait for the premiere to finally see Dracula’s accursed dick. It arrives July 7.

    I can’t wait until he finds a chain, then some bat bites him, takes it away, and gives his whip back.
