long ago, when i was a teen, i heard tale of Frank Langella’s Dracula.
and now i, too, have fallen under his spell.
seriously, tho, i’ve never seen such a charming Dracula. loves independent women. wears a mean caravat. he’s just great.
three other things:
1) some of the adaptational choices are fine (Renfield isn’t Harker’s predecessor!? my canon!), but others are super weird. why switch Mina and Lucy’s names?
2) the vampire love scene is iconic. completely sublime,
3) can’t a girl ever land a brooding hunk? it’s 2019. monsterfucking is mainstream. let Mina (or Lucy) be a vampire queen! let Christine fuck her father figure! The Shape of Water for all!
