Episode #017 – The Brides of Dracula

January 31, 2013 by · 1 Comment 

What if you made a Dracula film and the Prince of Darkness is a no-show? Well, that’s the scenario this month for Casey, Derek, and Scott as they get together to talk about The Brides of Dracula from 1960. The film is directed by Terence Fisher and is the sequel to 1958’s Horror of Dracula. Can the good Dr. Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) save the day or will Baron Meinster (David Peel) continue to make moves on the ladies in Transylvania? Who are we kidding – of course Van Helsing will win. It’s Peter Cushing after all!
