OKAY!

So Horror of Dracula* DIDN'T suck! Nice to know I remembered right for once, despite having not seen it for nearly 25 years. While it was a little goofy**, it was still good and Peter Cushing was so unflappable he could out-cool the Fonze. HOWEVER! Is there something in vampirism that makes people totally fail at pattern recognition? An aura effect maybe? Something about being around them kills the ability to put two and two together? I mean, I get that Johnny Harker is supposed to be as dumb as a box of hammers, but why does everyone so totally fail to pick things up?

While I've got you here, I'm a little worried about trying to watch Dracula AD 1972, becuase I'm not sure anything could match up with the awesomeness of that trailer.


*(also known as Dracula in England)
**It was a different time you understand. 1957, 58.
