    Sounds Awesome. I liked the coffin shaped box…lol. You know, I was watching that 1931 Dracula with Bela Lugosi a week ago. Before I didn’t really like him, Bela Lugosi I mean (I know…tsk tsk). However, I watched it again and started to admire him. There was something about that film, even today, that just catches you. LOL….I wonder what it would be like if Lugosi had worn fangs!

    Lugosi’s Dracula is still the most believable “hypnotic” vampire on film.
    Vampires seem to have been losing their hypnotic powers over the last few decades… >;^]

    All of the films in that coffin box are great.
