Death of Centuries

Your daily dose of classic vampires. From Dracula to Carmilla, from Varney to lord Ruthven

Update 2: Both Quincey and Renfield are girls because no one wanted to play Quincey and I volunteered (yes im the director script writer composer mic operator and I also die in the penultimate episode it sucks to be me ) and I wanted a female Renfield to have mysogynisticdouchetastic Drac.

Dracula adaptation update:

I have actors for Lucy, Jack, Jonathan, Quincey and Arthur. Renfield doesn’t want to do it and Mina is going to another country in the search of work. I need to have a conversation with Dracula. I am clueless on where to find a Van Helsing…

Did you know Bela Lugosi’s Dracula didn’t have fangs?

Have you ever wondered where that recurring reincarnation/romance subplot came from that wasn’t in the book?

Since it was not a real leak,
have a bingo thing.
I predict that at least half of this things are going to happen, but I can be mistaken.
Protip: you can also turn it into a drinking game if your country allows you to bring vodka inside the theatres. 

the free space should be “a sex scene where he almost drinks her blood”

^ Marry me? 

okay so i watched it last night and…
•shitty CGI: not really no•Dracula as anti-hero: yes •dead wife shenanigans: yes but well done•”Children of the Night”: no suprisingly•impractical armour: no actually•anachronisms: somewhat yes•makeup failure: well the fangs…•BATS: yes a bloody lot but loved it!!!•sunlight shenanigans: yes •plotholes: not that i noticed•capes: yes but mainly on Vlad•electric music: bless the undead no•sex scene with bites & blood: almost •fog covering bad CGI: fog yes but ehhh•bad latin: not really that horrid•”I am not Evil”: no but he admits to evil•book reference: yes but not a lot •”I am a Monster”: “I am what men Fear”•dragon motif: yes •history failure: only to help plotline •”I never drink Wine”: no•no Romanian accent: yes •lensflare: not really •wtf female costumes: no thank the undead
so in all the movie was not terrible & personally i liked it a lot cause it makes a different Dracula from the aspects that we love & it has the possibility of a sequel…
wait marry you???

I reassure my proposition of marriage.
Thanks on the input!
I will be writing a critique when I can watch it in a couple weeks. I sometimes hate being European. We are always late to the party.

But my very feelings changed to repulsion and terror when I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window and begin to crawl down the castle wall over that dreadful abyss, face down, with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings. At first I could not believe my eyes. I thought it was some trick of the moonlight, some weird effect of shadow; but I kept looking, and it could be no delusion. I saw the fingers and toes grasp the corners of the stones, worn clear of the mortar by the stress of years, and by thus using every projection and inequality move downwards with considerable speed, just as a lizard moves along a wall.
What manner of man is this, or what creature is it in the semblance of man? I feel the dread of this horrible place overpowering me; I am in fear—-in awful fear—-and there is no escape for me; I am encompassed about with terrors that I dare not think of…
