A young teacher on her way to a position in Transylvania helps a young man escape the shackles his mother has put on him.

What a great way to kick off Mothers Day Weekend and of course the 2nd annual May Monster Madness blog hop. For those you that did not catch the last few weeks Sven is back. He has been filming new Mail Bag segments.

Also when you check in tonight watch  in the opening scenes, the windows on the coach almost all alternate between open and closed from shot to shot. And its not Svensourrond but despite the fact the characters are all wearing winter clothes, in several night scenes crickets and frogs can loudly be heard as if it is summer.

Those of you that are stopping in for May Monster Madness tonights showing of Svengoolie “Brides of Dracula” hits the Me-TV airwaves tonight at 10 pm eastern and pacific, 9 pm central time, and please check your local listings for the runtime in your bitten neck of the woods.For our Chicago viewers, you’ll get another look at Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff in “The Raven” on our sister station, WCIU- the U- at 11 am.

  2. "...whose beauty was her passport to the twilight of the undead" There are some pretty good lines in that trailer. I can't remember if I've seen this one. I guess I've seen so many vampire movies that they're becoming a bit of a blur. This looks pretty action packed!

  3. Thank goodness for respectable evil vampires. All these cute and sparkly bloodsuckers can get on a girl's nerves.

  4. I haven't seen this one, but I'll be sure to check it out! I played a Bride of Dracula in a high school musical once, our Drac wasn't anywhere near as captivating as this one though! ;)
