The likes of Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man have no business aping the Marvel “shared universe” structure in the first place. They're monsters! Let them monster! Any of our well-intentioned blogging-into-the-wind was too little, too late because the head of Universal has pretty much come and out said that they're taking the horror out of their horror icons.
It’s easy to find Halloween movies. A cursory Google-search yields a slew of time-honored terror, vetted by thousands of critics and fans. But for those weak-stomached folks who avoid horror flicks at all costs, this bounty of murder porn, slasher flicks, and Romero rip-offs are highway to bad dream city.

After much time spent in development, NBC's Jonathan Rhys-Meyers starring 'Dracula' finally released its first trailer with its pickup announcement earlier this year. Now, following a brief preview of the re-imagined horror series this past week at Comic-Con 2013, NBC has made available the latest trailer for the Friday horrorfest, with a heaping helping of blood, and babes.
NBC's been rather quiet on the front of its upcoming straight-to-series adaptation 'Dracula,' little known other than 'The Tudors' star Jonothan Rhys-Meyers would take the title role for a series helmed by 'Carnivale' creator Dan Knauf.
