Dracula’s Tux

The phraseology of this article leaves a bit to be desired in terms of professionalism–not that I don’t sometimes leave a tad to be desired myself with my writing, as I do, in first person here and on our sister sites (werewolves.com, zombies.org, topcomics.com, and darkness.com)–and tries just a teensy bit too hard to sound…

Dracula’s Lament

I like Jason Segel, despite not liking most of his work, or at least the work he is known for. I despise that sitcom he stars in, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. I’ve seen a few episodes, and it’s typical dumbed-down sitcom joke-bait. And I didn’t at all care for FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. It’s the…

“…Dracula’s Castle, is up for sale by its owners — the Habsburg royal line — and the Romanian government has apparently placed an $80 million bid on the storied mansion.” Yeah but… how many bathrooms does it have? Is there a pool, –and what are the schools like in this neighborhood? Just think, with a…

Dracula’s Bleak Midwinter

Christina Rossetti wrote the poem “A Christmas Carol”, aka “In the Bleak Midwinter”, in 1872. It was set to music in the early 20th Century, at which point it became a popular Christmas song.

Dracula’s War is Coming

Director Jonathan A. Moody’s film Dracula’s War was announced forever ago (…a few month ago) and I’ve been waiting for more info on the project, but none came, making me think the film had been axed.

Lets Remake Dracula’s Daughter

As before, I formally give anyone at all the right to use any of the ideas that follow. Go for it! With the economy being what it is, and the huge competition from the internet and direct-to-dvd, small wonder Hollywood studios look to established stories for investing purposes. Here’s a suggestion for a remake: Dracula’s…

Dracula vs. Dracula—Rapped

Watch this. While I don’t typically find these sorts of trendy Internet things as entertaining as do my friends, and seemingly everybody else, this one in particular I love. It isn’t just because it’s about Dracula, though. If it were about Dracula and it was stupid, I’d hate it. Being concerned with Dracula as its…

A Black Dracula and a Bisexual Dracula

There are rumors going round. The upcoming BBC miniseries DRACULA starring Claes Bang in the title role will feature a bisexual vampire Count. This one seems to be true. And the online reactions have been about what one would expect. From the overwoke dilettantes hooting “It’s about time!” to the purists and those tired of…

B’ars at Dracula’s Castle

For once, an article written about “Dracula’s Castle” actually refers to his REAL castle, the ruined fortress at Poenari, and not the commercially-exploited Castle Bran which has only a tangential connection to either the historic Dracula or Bram Stoker’s fictionalized vampire Count. It does, however, perhaps illustrate why Bran is pushed by the tourism industry…

Dracula’s Guest is a deleted chapter from Bram Stoker’s legendary novel Dracula which was written with the rest of the story but omitted from the final version published in 1897. Even though it was left out of the book, Dracula’s Guest was eventually published in 1914 in Dracula’s Guest and Other Weird Tales. While it’s…
