Friday is usually interview day, but y’know, this is Paranormal Unbound and we bend the rules goddammit and OMG LOOK Jonathan Rhys Meyers!!!!
Excuse me while I drown in a glittering miasma of delight. Right. Thanks. Carrying on.
So… what do you think? Looks glossy, say what? Sexy? Deliciously evil? How about the accent? The name change? Best casting ever (so says I) or a big mistake? Will you be watching?
It also looks like a crossover of several different aspects of the Dracula myth: horror, suspense, erotic/romance, mystery, with anachronistic/steampunkish elements thrown in. In the name of genre-benders everywhere, I’m looking forward to seeing how they get along.
Because it’s innovation that will keep our genre alive. The days when old myths were sacred, precious, not to be diddled with? Gone, baby. Diddling with old myths has become our core business. Right? Or wrong? Would you prefer we left the old stuff alone and broke new ground in other ways?
So. What’s the verdict on NBC’s new Dracula? Yay, nay, or hell-yeah-let-me-at-it? Will you be watching, come fall?
