CASTLEVANIA
July 7, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

SERIES PREMIERE: In 1987, Nintendo released the video game Castlevania in America. It was a dinky little 8-bit Nintendo cartridge game, with incessantly repeating music and a basic plot that had the game player maneuvering a whip-wielding hero as he worked his way through levels of a castle inhabited by vampires and other monsters. That was 30 years ago – and I played it with my kids, along with an even more addictive game based on Jaws. Anyway, this new animated series – four episodes, in total, make up Season 1 – premieres today on Netflix, promising a much darker (and much, much more animated) take on the Castlevania story line.
