Taste the Blood of Dracula - Part III
Dracula has assembled a team of buxom vampire slaves—but it’s the young hero to the rescue. Dracula meets his end by falling onto an altar table covered in crucifixes!
(Dracula had an approximate eight lines the whole movie—three of which consisted of the single word “Now”, and the longest of which was two whole sentences long!)
Taste the Blood of Dracula - Part II
In which the chickens come home to roost as Dracula comes after the hypocritical businessmen, using their children as his instruments.
Taste the Blood of Dracula - Part I
In which a group of respectable Victorian businessmen cap off a night of hypocritical debauchery by holding a black mass and trying to raise Dracula.
(There was so much plot and scenic goodness in this movie I couldn’t select a mere ten screencaps! Therefore I’m splitting this into three parts.)
Dark Shadows au where somewhere during the Maggie-kidnapping arc, Barnabas turns into a toddler with an adult vampire’s mind. And he can’t lift his cane. But Willie betrayed him.
So he’s all, “Willie, pick up my cane. Hit yourself with it! That’s an order!”
And Willie cries while hitting himself. This is all very traumatic.
I had an idea for a similar AU this morning, set during the story arc where Julia’s vampire cure goes wrong. Instead of aging to his true age Barnabas starts getting younger. At first he’s all “Yay! I’ll be young and handsome for Vicki! ” but then he starts aging backwards past puberty. Finally Julia is left with a stroppy part vampire toddler on her hands!
ELIZABETH: Jason, where is Willie Loomis? … If he’s well enough to go out of the house, he’s well enough to go out of the house permanently… Jason, you’ve done nothing but lie to me since you came back, and I’m going to put an end to it. I’m going to put an end to it right now if he doesn’t get out of here.
JASON: Oh no, Liz. You’re not going to put an end to anything. The only ending for us involves the police.
Elizabeth discovers Willie Loomis is missing—once again. Jason McGuire reminds her who has the whip hand in their relationship.
"Dead? Oh, my God!"
"You killed her! You and Dr. Hoffman!"
"That isn’t true!"
Adam tells Barnabas that Carolyn is dead. The he proceeds to blame everything on Barnabas and Julia. Grieving, Barnabas lashes out that his loss is greater because Carolyn was a member of his family.(*several generations removed). Barnabas will soon be an orphan again because Adam intends to wipe out the residents of Collinwood, starting with his not girlfriend Vicki. Barnabas lunges for Adam, but Adam easily overpowers him. Barnabas hits the dirt…again.
"You think no one else will miss her! Only you because you think it is your loss! Well, it isn’t! She is part of me, not you! She is one of my family! And I feel as deeply about her as you THINK you do! You are the one who wanted her as the life force. If anyone killed her, it was you!"
"I told you what I was going to do! If anything happened to Carolyn. First Vicki. Then everyone in your family!
Adam really *is* like Barnabas, isn’t he? “IT’S ALL SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT! SOMEBODY MUST DIE!”
