Dracula "Living Dead Doll" available for pre-order

Living Dead Dolls Presents Universal Monsters Dracula

I was never fond of Mezco's "living dead dolls" line (a bit too creepy, even for my tastes), but now that a Dracula version is on the horizon, I've had a change of heart. Based on the Universal monster, this new doll looks like Bela Lugosi, if he were turned at about age ten.

Look what's back!

Greetings, my long-suffering creatures of the night. THE FORUMS ARE BACK!

Let's be honest, Facebook has pretty much destroyed the concept of community, website-based forums, especially for genre sites. But after recently being contacted by an "old" member (as in "elder"), I got to thinking of the old days...and figured I'd resurrect the forums once again.

As you can see, there hasn't been much activity over the years, and perhaps these boards will continue to stagnate. But if you feel like popping by and posting a message, it would be great to hear from you.

Lust for Dracula

From the Library

Late in the 17th century, there was a town called Croglin Grange (in Cumberland County, England). It's been said by some that the town was visited by a vampire... and the young lady in the tale barely escaped with her life.A one-story home in Croglin Grange was rented to a two brothers and their sister. One summer night, when the heat from the day still clung to the air, the sister was looking out her window at the stars. It was too hot to sleep. Suddenly, she noticed two lights that flickered in and out of the group of trees that lay beyond her window.
