Various bits of Stokerism...

Well, obviously there's all that stuff about Dracula...


But there's also The Jewel of the Seven Stars (aka Curse of the Blood from the Mummy's Tomb Doom Sort of Thing)


And there's Dracula (working under an assumed name)...


Then there's The Lair of the White Worm, which was weird till Ken Russell got his mitts on it, whereupon it became delightfully loopy... Ooh, look, it's Hugh Grant!


So, Happy Birthday, Bram Stoker.

As it's my favorite Dracula film, I'll be watching the John Badham film to celebrate, even if it barely resembles the book. It has a great gothic feel and some genuinely frightening moments.

Or perhaps the Guy Maddin silent movie/ballet adaptation "Dracula: Pages From A Virgin's Diary". One of the most stylized adaptations ever, it's amazing and beautiful and captures the gothic feel.

Decisions, decisions... :)
