When Netflix announced in February that they were taking on the cult classic video game franchise and turning it into a TV show, single eyebrows lifted around the world and after this first preview, the second one is joining them.

Based on the 30 year old video game franchise, the trailer is full of whip-cracking, blood and vampires. So we don't think this is one for the kids.

Here's the official synopsis:

Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar.

'Castlevania' arrives on Netflix on July 7th.
