vampirtini replied to your post:me and Mary were just talking about how Shelley and Tommy Wiseau are your two patron saints and then I was like ‘wait, tommy wiseau playing Shelley in a bio pic’ and now this must happenNO. remake of gothic with tommy wiseau as byron and greg sestero as shelley
LITERALLY THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS IS THAT EARLIER TODAY @HERBERT-BEST AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT A 90S AU OF GOTHIC AND IT BASICALLY WOULD BE THAT
It would make just as much sense as the original!
I saw this at Barnes and Noble today. While I didn’t bring it home with me (still gathering NYCC stuff), I did take a quick look through the Dracula portion and it’s pretty adorable, though occasionally grimmer than expected (the rather lurid modifications to the face they use for Lucy while she’s suffering and dying are just a little too close to the text- these are book adaptations, not pop-culture-osmosis versions- to not be kind of viscerally disturbing on a little LEGO face). In any case, it’s about half the price on Amazon that it was in the store.Get caught up in the two most famous scary stories of all time depicted in LEGO bricks! Creep your way through the shadowy sets of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Bram Stoker’s Dracula in this amazing brick adaptation. With one thousand color photographs, these stories and their monsters come alive in full plastic horror!
Stare in awe as Dr. Frankenstein brings his brick monster to life in a risky science experiment, and brace yourself as the creature steps out into the world. Travel to Count Dracula’s giant brick castle in Transylvania, and beware as he taunts his prey in the night. Watch brick Van Helsing discover the cause of poor Lucy’s illness, and follow him as he prepares his plot to save her.
These classic horror stories are retold with a classic construction toy, staying true to their original forms in this modestly abridged collection. For young readers, LEGO adorers, and devotees to gothic literature, Brick Frankenstein and Dracula is a mesmerizing new take to the founding tales of fright!
My first response to this was going to be “and the sky is blue”, but it turns out it’s about a move to change the name of the Howard award. I recall similar discussions in the film world about awards named after DW Griffith, which means I doubt a consensus will be reached any time soon.
Heck, I’m a Jewish woman- the kind of person Lovecraft seemed to fear most of all- and even I don’t know where I stand on this!
#idk how true this is because this is a kind of short lazy article without sources
I don’t know that she hated it, but according to what I read she did think her best work was the stuff she wrote about being a Union nurse during the civil war, and disliked the fact that people only knew her from Little Women.
waking up to strife in the dark shadows fandom takes me back to 2012 when everything was war and everything was perfect
And now I’ve woken up to it as well! Observing wank in a fandom whose canon was over before I was born makes me feel like a part of something greater than myself…
(Also, I’m totally on team dorkshadows)
You are making your own DS movie, what is the plot?
The arcs about Barnabas’ arrival and backstory have been done- House of Dark Shadows did them, and the Burton film did them. I get why- he’s the most recognizable character, after all, and most of the tv show too place in the late sixties- but I think a film about the 1897 arc instead would be kickass. And Barnabas himself can be there or not- while time travel instigated the plot, there was already a lot going on…
A couple things I’d want to keep in mind…
