While he might not have been a real vampire, Vlad the Impaler was the quiet possibly closest thing to a real-life Dracula throughout the history of mankind, and the bloody battle to end his cruel reign of terror is depicted in Osman Kaya's epic action thriller, The Hunt for Vlad the Impaler (formerly titled Deliler), which hits Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on February 4th.
4Digital Media has released the official trailer and poster artwork for the film. Both can be seen below.
"In the middle of the 15th century, in the depths of Turkey during the Ottoman Empire, the land is torn apart by horrendous atrocities and bloody murders are inflicted against the terrified people by the cruel and bloodthirsty, Vlad the Impaler. The ruler, Baba Sultan, orders a group of seven fearless warriors known as Deliler, to hunt down Vlad and end the persecution once and for all."
"The seven heroes set out on their long journey, stopping at nothing until they find the inhumane Vlad and defeat him in what will be a battle to end all battles…"
Erkan Petekkaya stars as Vlad Tepes alongside Cem Uçan, Yetkin Dikinciler and Nur Fettahoğlu.
Kaya directed from a screenplay penned by Mustafa Burak Doğu and İbrahim Ethem Arslan.
