31 Days of Dracula: 11 David Niven

011_NivenOld Drac, also known as Vampira (1974) stars David Niven as the geriatric count. This one tries to follow the success of the comedy Young Frankenstein. From Wikipedia:

Count Dracula is an old vampire who, because of his advanced age, is forced to host tours of his castle to get new victims. In an attempt to revive his long-lost love, Vampira, Dracula sets out to collect blood from the bevy of Playboy Playmates living at his castle. However, one of the Playmates whose blood is drained is black, turning the revived Vampira into a black woman.

Dracula enthralls the hapless Marc to collect blood from three white women in hopes of restoring Vampira’s original skin color. Dracula transfuses the blood into her but she is unchanged; however, her bite turns Dracula black. Marc and his love Angela race to destroy Dracula but are taken aback upon seeing Dracula’s new skin tone. Their surprise gives the vampires time to slip away to catch a flight to Rio forCarnival.

Christine

Christine is still fun to watch after all these years.  As we are finding a home for Tales of Hot Rod Horror 2, I will be posting about the inspirations for the book.  Here is the cover that we didn’t use.  You can see the influence that the John Carpenter/Stephen King movie had.

Meet me in Montauk

There are a lot of strange places in the world.  You have Gibsonton, Florida, where circus side show freaks go to retire, an open gateway to hell in Turkmenistan.  You have Point Pleasant, West Virginia, home of the Mothman.  But the weirdest place for my money is Montauk, New York.  Montauk is home to the weirdest conspiracy theory in history, the Montauk Project. Disinfo put out a short documentary on this about 12 years ago.  TMP includes the search for Nazi gold, cloning DNA from Jesus, homoerotic time travel, the Philadelphia experiment, and mind control just to name a few.  As if things couldn’t get any weirder, in July 2008, something that looked like a microwaved turtle without a shell allegedly washed up on the shore. Jenna Hewitt, 26, of Montauk claimed to have found the creature and photographed it. The Montauk Monster became an overnight celebrity from exposure in newpapers and blogs and now has his own website. The creature has been featured on Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory and Ancient Aliens.  Was this creature simply a decomposing carcass of a raccoon or turtle or with speculation of the Montauk Project and other weirdness in the area something much more sinister?
