Castlevania Breaks Rotten Tomatoes Record

It's been quite a trend in Hollywood that whenever they see a franchise with a massive cult-following, they feel the necessity of milking that cow, regardless of the genre of that franchise. So far, comic-book movie adaptations are a phenomenon these days on both theater and televisions. Sometime, they even manage to garner critique's praises too. This trend is goes reverse whenever they decide to do a video game adaptation and for decades, it's been carried away like an ancient curse.

There are movies that made huge bucks at the box office like Tomb Raider movies, a series of multiple sequels like Resident Evil or have highly dedicated fan groups like Silent Hill that ranks high among the list of video game adaptations that has failed to satisfy the ever so unsatisfied tastes of the critiques. It looks like there is no apparent end to this misfortune of critically unsuccessful video game adaptations. The most recent causalities to add to the pile are the Assassin’s Creed and Warcraft adaptation films of 2017.
