2. Are you particularly a fan of vampire fiction, movies, music? If so, what are your faves?
I have loved Dracula since I was a child, Friday night creature features with Bela Lugosi, Saturday afternoon matinée with Christopher Lee. I first dressed up as Dracula for Halloween when I was 10 years old, although I looked more like Eddie Munster. Later on I was a huge fan of Gene Colan’s Tomb of Dracula comic book, but I never read Stoker ’til I found him on Project Gutenberg and realised how different from most modern interpretations the original text actually is, and how much it had been toned down for earlier film versions. I can’t remember when I first saw Murnau’s Nosferatu, but it immediately superseded all other versions for me once I had. I also really enjoyed the Malkovich/Dafoe ”Shadow of the Vampire”, which shows Murnau making “Nosferatu” armed only with a wooden box camera on a tripod and his MANIA … I found that really inspiring. Another great vampire film that doesn’t get enough love is Abel Ferrarra’s “The Addiction”. And of course “Let the Right One In”.
