I’m getting to love this show, but rumor has it that NBC might cancel the series if star Jonathan Rhys Meyers doesn’t clean up his drug problem. Pay attention, Jonathan! Steampunk Granny wants to give you a bit of advice. “Snap out of it and get your damn act together. You’re way too talented to throw your life away.” Okay now that I got that out of my system, let’s review the show. Renfield has been captured by Davenport’s men. Will Dracula be able to save his right hand man? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
On last week’s episode, Dracula discovered Lady Jayne’s secret; she captures, tortures and destroys vampires; bad, bad Jayne. Up until this episode, I was a bit upset with the lack of action and bloodletting on the series. I was about to plunge the stake and change channels. I’m a big fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers and could not wrap my head around his lackadaisical Dracula. Jonathan’s Henry Tudor from Showtime had more blood thirsty tendencies than this mellow creature of the night. Dracula is known for his blood sucking, killer instincts. He’s supernatural and I expect Dracula to kick butt. Last week, he did, and so did his sidekick Van Helsing. It’s about time! But, my little blood banks, Dracula has his own secrets and we will meet one tonight after the jump.
Hello my little vamps! I hope you had a chance to read Biff Bam Pop’s very own Glenn Walker‘s take on “Dracula,” if not, please do. Well… last week’s episode was somewhat interesting. Mina dumped Harker, the Victorian male chauvinist. Dracula eliminated his enemies, but not fast enough to keep me interested. Ninja Lady Jayne has seers with a magic mirror. I really want this show to succeed, especially since it follows “Grimm,” but so far… I’ve been a bit disappointed in the weak scripts. I’m hoping this show finds its mojo and kicks up the level of horror. This is a vampire story after all, right? Will Dracula kick butt tonight? Find out after the jump Read the rest of this entry
Well, my little blood suckers, last week’s episode of “Dracula” revealed a few surprising secrets; Van Helsing (Thomas Kretschmann) and Dracula (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) are comrades working to bring down the powerful petroleum mega rich men who belong to the Order of the Dragon; Dracula does not sparkle, but he is sexy! And who is the one really doing the seducing, Lady Jane or Dracula? Find out after the jump.
31 Days Of Horror 2013: Guest Blogger Liisa Ladouceur On How To Learn About Vampires (or, how I learned to love the Vampire Diaries)
Liisa Ladouceur is the Queen of Toronto Goth, and I’m so excited to have her at Biff Bam Pop as part of our 31 Days of Horror. A noted journalist, author and commentator (we were on an episode of MuchMoreMusic’s Listed together many moons ago), Liisa’s latest book is called How To Kill A Vampire, and is published by our friends at ECW Press.
Before I started to write my book How to Kill a Vampire, I thought I had seen a lot of vampire movies. I had certainly read a lot of books about bloodsuckers, which is why I decided to focus on the specific topic of vampire destruction myths, something not already on my shelf that I felt could use some attention. I then pretty much spent six months alone in the dark watching every vamp flick I could get my hands on (spoiler: there are a fuck of a lot), while at the same time digging through studies of ancient burial rituals and superstitions, in my quest to get to the bottom of how and why we stake, decapitate and burn vampires.

Welcome my little blood banks. Are you ready for a good vampire show that doesn’t have synthetic blood or vampires who sparkle? Dracula, which is produced by Carnival Films, created by Cole Haddon, and has Daniel Knauf as showrunner, stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula/Vlad Tepes/ Alexander Grayson. How well does Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who played Henry VIII so stunningly in the The Tudors, portray Dracula? Find out after the jump.
I must have died and gone to heaven! The networks, this fall, are returning with some old and trusted favorites along with some new and exciting horror shows. Our illustrious leader, Andy Burns (knowing that I’m coo-coo for everything scary) asked me to review two new shows; “Sleepy Hollow” on Fox and “Dracula” on NBC, along with my weekly review of “The Walking Dead.” What was my reply, you might ask, my little zombie snacks? Find out after the jump.
I have two questions! Why didn’t Jason shoot Sarah and where the hell did Eric fly off to? This is no time to leave the party, my little stud muffin. Bill is acting like Mr. Hero, as he leads the rescued vamps home, but it was Eric who really saved the day. Arlene has to stop marrying men with issues. And, I’ve had enough funerals to last for a while; let’s concentrate on weddings, instead. Will Sookie and Warlow tie the knot? Will Eric return to save the day? Let’s find out together after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
