Dracula

#1  Postby aufbahrung » Jan 01, 2020 10:36 pm

Hyperbole springs to mind. Absurdity and infantile horror tropes of the stereotypical sort for Dracula. It's the potential to become a underground classic. On account of the one liners rather than the over-arching storyline. Why the boxes and not coffins? Seems the desire to be different extended that far and no further.

What would happen to Dracula if he drank the blood of someone with ebola? :think:

I bet he'd hurl.

Is this some new Dracula flick I am unaware of, or just standard Crumple?

It's a real Dracula remake, although only just about real. They really tried to make it scary, and funny, at the same time. But it would have been so much more if they'd stuck to one or the other rather than trying to nail the contradiction.

Based on the first episode, I can highly recommend it. :thumbup:

Think of a rebooted, harder edged Hammer style. I'm looking forward to episode 2 tonight.

That’s a good description. I was quite apprehensive based on the trailer, and yeah, it strays from the book, but I found it quite atmospheric. Also the humour isn’t a Mrs Brown’s Boys sort of thing, it’s subtler and ominous.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

Sister Agatha/Dolly Wells putting in an early bid for 2020 person of the year.

Will she get to travel to Whitby somehow for the later episodes? :dunno:

Needed a moment to check with the urban dictionary and see what they did there. Steak on his face.
