Episode #163 – Dracula 3D

Shocktober continues/ends with Dario Argento totally forgetting everything he knew about filmmaking (and we don’t even like him that much) with Dracula 3D. Meanwhile, Dan reveals the alternate, director’s cut ending to Escape (The Pina Colada Song), Elliott out-pervs the pervazoid with his demands for more nudity, and Stuart once again astounds with his facility for accents.

    For reference: Rutger Hauer is Lothos in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Mark Metcalf is The Master (ie. the soldier guy from Animal House and those Twisted Sister videos). Dracula was played by by Rudolf Martin. Yes, the actual Dracula showed up in Buffy at the beginning of the 5th season.

    Another good comedy vampire story is My Best Friend is a Vampire, starring the best friend from House and Odo from DS9.

    Dan has cemented his role as my favourite Flopper by recommending “Duel”. Such a good movie!

    The new song of the autumn is absolutely amazing!

    Three Men and a Quigley was the best

    Soooo… is the “Rocket Crocodile” Autotune ditty at the end going to be available on iTunes or what? Because I think you can make dozens of dollars off of it! DOZENS!

    When talking about space vampires, I was surprised that no one mentioned Lifeforce. I mean, boobs, come on

  8. Sonni says:

    LOL, the Dracula in the poster looks like Ray Ramona,
    Would love to see that film!

  9. Erin says:

    After watching this I’d say the Dracula actor is more an accessible Sean Bean than a Russian Craig T Nelson. But, agree with all the other assessments such as overall brightness, unnecessary crotch distance in the opening sex scene, and the over the top craziness of shlubby Renfield.

  10. Gerald Fnord says:

    In the original book Renfield, whose diagnosis long before he came under Dracula’s influence, was ‘religious mania’—so ripe for exploitation by a Master—was important because noöne sane would invite the Count in.

    I’m pretty sure the ‘sees picture of Mina, is sure sheʼs his long-lost love’ was used long before Coppola’s “Dracula” , because when I first saw that movie I thought ‘Not _that_ old variation.’ It might even had been used in the George Hamilton anti-comedy “Love at First Bite”.

    Final trivium: in Stoker’s book, Dracula can walk about during the day, he just can’t then transform and is only as strong as a strong man. Subsequent writers made vampires so strong and weren’t as religious, so destruction by sunlight was introduced because writers then wanted more limitations (or imitated other writers).

  11. Gerald Fnord says:

    Similarly to Mr Kalan’s thoughts about the different versions of “The Thin Man”, “The Godfather”‘s original book greatly disappointed me in comparison to the movie…even with the pelvic floor resectioning sub-plot.
