I love Paul Bettany; ever since I saw him play the role of Chaucer in A Knight’s Tale, I have been totally in love with the guy. So, you can imagine how disappointed I was when they crammed all this personality into the role of the ‘priest’. The movie could have been great, but unfortunately,…Continue readingPriest 2011: Review
Let’s say that you aren’t here because you love vampires, but because you hate them and you’re looking for info on the enemy.

Well, there’s been a lot of ups and downs with the cast of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter; not that it’s anything close to some movies I can think of, –Jack and Diane, for example, which couldn’t keep a cast member if it was life or death, –but there have been some definite hitches. The main…Continue readingAlan Tudyk Added to Cast of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!
So you might remember about a year ago, a lot of hype about the vampire movie ‘Priest’, which was due to come out in August 2010, –and that was actually its postponed release date, supposedly it was due to come out in spring of that year. So now, a year later, Priest is finally due…Continue readingVampire Film ‘Priest’ is Finally Being Released!
The catch is, this isn’t actually a vampire movie. It’s a movie about a guy who has I guess, completely lost his marbles, who goes around Eastern Europe… killing harmless old men by pounding stakes through their hearts. And it’s directed, not by the -director- of Troll 2, but by the child star in Troll…Continue readingMichael Stephenson of ‘Troll 2’ to Direct Vampire Film ‘Destroy’
I believe it was me who said that actor Ben Walker would look smashing as Abraham Lincoln, –and so far, I was incredibly accurate with my prediction. There are quite a few other little factoids that the blogs have managed to scrape together, mostly via intercepted emails, and probably with lots of waste-basket digging after…Continue readingNew Details on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
It is an image with startling but subtle power. A boat approaches, carrying a single figure clad in white. The island in view contains dark trees surrounded on all sides but one with wall-like rocks. Above we see sky swirling with clouds. The painting, by Swiss Symbolist Arnold Brocklin, produced five different versions. Freud, Lenin…Continue readingIsle of the Dead
Bram Stoker seems like a such a conservative. He pursued a career as a government clerk until a better opportunity in entertainment presented itself. As manager of a hugely successful actor and theatre, he and his primly beautiful wife reveled as they walked amid high society. His novels abound with staunchly Victorian ideas and prejudices.…Continue readingThe Curious Case of Jonathan Harker
For fans of the undead, a favorite topic of debate remains comparing the various film versions of “Dracula.” Even limiting oneself to those explicitly based upon Stoker’s novel, over a dozen versions exist from “Nosferatu” (original and remake) to both Universal versions in 1930, both adaptations that starred Christopher Lee, all three BBC Draculas, the…Continue readingAdaptations of Carmilla
