« Latin Roots, Pars Quattuor | Main | "The Escher Twist" by Jane Langton »

Didn't you notice how Dracula's eyes flickered as he hypnotized Mina? It was like a superfast nystagmus. How did he do that? It was awesome...or when he took her out to the balcony to listen to the wolves howl ("the Children of the Night"), I could have just swooned.

Vampires are very sexy to some of us. Do any of your readers have an insight into the psychology behind attraction to vampires?

BTW the "corpse bride" comes highly recommended by my niece, who hated "The Blair Witch Project ("boooooring").


Rita is so stuck-in-the-70's gothic.

I think that Frank Longella's Dracula looks like an anorexic, demented, knock off of John Travolta. (Stayin' Alive, stayin' alive...takes on a whole new meaning, doesn't it?)

As far as the psychology of vampire-worship goes, I have read that it comes from a deep-seated desire to have your blood sucked out in exchange for immortality. Sort of like becoming a dried flower arrangement. Does that make sense?
