This is so important
This is Universal’s famous “lesbian vampire movie,” but keep your pants on … it’s not exactly Girls Gone Wild. While it’s no more salacious than its predecessor, the subtext of DRACULA’S DAUGHTER isn’t exactly subtle. Zaleska is cursed by impulses she can barely control and turns to modern psychology for help. And my “modern,” I mean “hopelessly antiquated.” The medicine on display in this film is as out-of-date as the superstitions on display, making it almost a battle of ignorances among the main characters. DRACULA’S DAUGHTER gets bonus points for never referencing Sigmund Freud, though.
In the secluded Dutch territory of Sleepy Hollow, nebbish schoolmaster Ichabod Crane competes with the town hero for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the 18-year-old daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel’s farm one autumn evening, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, an apparition said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper snuffed out by a stray cannonball.
Reality is terrifying.
The show opens on the Simpson home, with Homer and Bart sitting outside.
The pair are carving Jack O’Lanterns.
But Bart gets bored and decides to carve something else.
It’s interesting how those who have the biggest platforms from which to spread the word of Jesus tend to be wealthy, especially since Jesus was allegedly not a fan of greed or even of wealth.
