YAY! So excited to hear you guys discuss this one. I was so obsessed when it came out, and even went to the Coppola winery just to see the costumes and props they have on display. I am a DRACULA junkie!ReplyDelete
As far as Terror In The Aisles goes, it was awesome when I was 12. I used it as a reference for things I hadn't watched or heard of. Glad you finally saw it! I get that it's not necessary at all these days.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy you gents did this, it's one of my all-timers. That coachman's hand is really one of my all-timers too.ReplyDelete
Also, how is the Jennifer Jason-Leigh 'Dead and Buried'?
I meant "Buried Alive." I may have misspokenDelete
Oh no! That was my mistake, sorry. Generic titles are easy to confuse.Delete
Loved the show, and really appreciated your defense of Keanu's performance. Adam, you made a great point about people just equating accents with good/bad acting. I honestly realized how much I liked him in the movie when I watched the 1979 DRACULA. I really like that movie, but the Jonathan Harker in it is convincingly British, but also both boring and unlikable. Say what you will about Keanu's Harker, but he is certainly neither of those things.ReplyDelete
I love everything about this movie.
Great episode guys, and it got me to bust out the Blu-ray of this one, and rewatch it for the first time in years. It was the most I’ve ever enjoyed it! I’m not even sure what my hang ups were on this before, but I was pretty blown away by it now. The opening is even more amazing than I remembered and the movie is big and epic in a way that we don’t see as much these days.ReplyDelete
Also, Patrick, if you are looking for R-rated movies that really don’t feel like they should be rated R to show your kids, I would recommend Annabelle comes home. I can’t figure why it’s rated R at all (I think I read something that the filmmakers just asked for the R rating to keep with all the other conjuring universe movies being R-rated) There is no sex or nudity, barely any language, and pretty much all bloodless violence. I don’t know if it would be too intense for them, but I think it’s really good and just feels like an amped up Are you afraid of the dark episode. I think it might be good gateway horror for kids. It’s just fun, well directed, and the three lead girls are all really likable.
Annabelle Comes Home rules!Delete

I agree, Adam! I’m glad you are a fan of this one too! It’s such a fun movie and I really love the characters in this one. Also, thanks for reading my Halloween 2 review!Delete
Great podcast, you two! I read the DRACULA novel for the first time last year, which answers your question about why Lucy has three suitors instead of one. In the book, Lucy experiences mysterious blood loss over three consecutive nights, so each of the three guys takes a turn giving her a blood transfusion. As a result, the suitors go from rivals to friendship (or more?) which give them motivation to stick around and join the chase.ReplyDelete
I definitely recommend giving the novel another try, if for no other reason than to see the many Dracula movies in context of the original. Again, I really enjoyed today's show.
I was curious to see what else Rachel Talalay has directed and I was straight-up shocked to discover she filmed the last Peter Capaldi episode of Doctor Who (which also has David Bradley as the First Doctor). It’s a quite nice piece of work with some very lovely moments. Hell, turns out she filmed all of the Capaldi season finales and they’re all pretty great.ReplyDelete
Ok, One other great joke in Dracula: Dead and Loving It! is when Peter MacNicol's character (Reinhold?) takes the mob back to Dracula's castle. It is a throw away joke but I think about it often.ReplyDelete
