6:26 pm - If this place is active....
ghostographer I read that this community is dead, but I figured it may be worth a shot to post a comment and see what arises. I'm very intrigured by the media portrayal and the history of vampires. I was watching a documentary where these people were asking directions to Dracula's castle and one of the people spoke of Vlad as a hero to his people. I never really thought about it like that. It was a different perspective to me that to the people he defended by being a monster he was a hero. Anyone care to comment?

6:45 pm - It was Dracula! Wait a minute...Ham shavings? The plot thickens.

I have just finished doing the play Dracula, and to be honest it made the book fall flat. So I wish to come to you all and discuss the good and bad things of Dracula. Ive seen most of the vampire medias in our society, but of course I am still very ignorant of the history as a whole.

I enjoyed Bram Stroker's Dracula (the film) the most. I being a actor, It is always great to see a professional like Anthony Hopkins act a hard part and excel it to new levels!

For some reason, I enjoyed the most recent Blade, Blade 3 as well. Having to do with Dracula in a modern world were he has been made a gimmick. Also the comedy of that film was just so great I couldnt help but love it.

What else can I say? Hope to meet you all and if not, hope to bring something to the commuinty.

Hello, I just wanted to say Hi and that I hope to learn a few things.
I will exspecially love it if we can get into other vampire ledgens and myths. It would be postitively lovely.
Dracula, though, Is a pretty good one. He was acctually the second Vampire I had ever heard about...(the first being count Chocula, LOL)
But yes, I really hope that this will be interesting.
toodles!

12:08 am - What a nifty community. :)

jordannamorgan
Hello, folks. Newbie here. :)

I have been a fan of classic horror films for many years; I'm a devotee of Gothic horror and steampunk. The original Dracula novel is my favorite book, and Van Helsing my favorite fictional character. I deeply love both Peter Cushing (my favorite actor) and Edward Van Sloan in the role.

(On the other hand, I intensely dislike "sympathetic/good" vampires--the sole exception being Barnabas Collins in the original "Dark Shadows".)

I am not a fan of modern horror. I definitely don't like Bram Stoker's Dracula, and though I love Hugh Jackman, I'm really skeptical about the new film. I do, however, hope it may reaffirm the character of Van Helsing as a protector and hero, instead of the "persecutor of misunderstood creatures" he is too often portrayed as.

Other classic horror fans may be interested in checking out my collective of fanlistings, which include Peter Cushing, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Claude Rains, Roddy McDowall, Barnabas Collins, and Van Helsing himself, among others. Always looking for fans and affiliates.

I hope to see this community grow. :)

Someone pointed out a free audiobook site with a recording of Dracula available, here - the free version has crappy sound quality, but the fellow reading it does all the accents and whatnot, and it's rather well done, as far as free stuff goes.
Sorry I haven't posted much here. o.o

4:35 pm - Newby

Hiyo everyone. Longtime fan of Dracula in all his many incarnations and a lover of bats (though I'm sure you could guess both of these from the username and icon). Found this place through Coyotepuck's wonderful comic adaptation and thought I'd hang out for a bit to see what goes on. I may throw my two cents in every now and then, but for the meantime I'll probably be fairly quiet.

So...yeah. That's my introduction. Now to find a nice, dark corner to lurk in...

8:53 pm - Van Helsing Trailer

coyotepuck
... is out. Here
I'm rather disapointed, mostly because it doesn't sound like Hugh Jackman has a cheesy Dutch accent. Abraham's supposed to have a cheesy accent, damnit... I really would be willing to overlook anything else if they did that. The special effects look ok, and the batty vampire design looks cool, but... I dunno, I'll wait to see how I feel about it when it comes out, and then go if I have money.
Now, if he were played by Anthony Hopkins, it'd be a whole different story...

Now that we have some members (hey!), I thought I'd start some conversation... What's your favorite adaptation of Dracula, if any, and why? What's the stupidest horror thing you've seen? What movies should we go rent, and what books are interesting, in the genre as a whole? What other random questions do you want to answer? ;) ... why did you join this community?

6:40 pm - All set up!

coyotepuck
I've set up this journal as a community for Dracula and vampire discussion of all sorts, because that's nifty, and as a place to plug my comic, which is an in progress adaptation of Dracula. You can find it Here. More info about the scope of this community is in its profile. Right now, I've only just gotten everything set up, as far as this journal and the comic website goes, so... yeah. Hopefully I'll get a member or two ;)
To keep things from looking -too- shamelessly geared towards my comic... I'm hoping this place'll generate some good discussion about the treatment of vampires in modern literature, folklore, and what have you. It's a fascinating subject, and as a recent convert to the horror genre, I can't get enough of this stuff. I dislike sympathetic portrayals of vampires in what I've come across so far, but that's just a personal taste, and by no means will I forbid talk of such critters here.
