Dracula Adaptations That I Would Totally Go See
- The reincarnation plot goes down but with the reincarnated lover being literally anyone but Mina or Lucy. Reincarnated Van Helsing, reincarnated Quincey, reincarnated Mr. Swales… I don’t care.
- Dracula isn’t Vlad the Impaler; he’s just a raging Vlad the Impaler fanboy who likes to insinuate he’s Vlad the Impaler because he’s immortal and nobody can call him on it.
- Dracula is Vlad the Impaler and is killed by exasperated Romanians who feel conflicted about how his vampiric status has impacted their tourism industry and perceived national character.
- Really…just subvert the whole Dracula is Vlad thing and/or that dumb reincarnation plot, and I’m golden.
- Dracula works according to Twilight rules. Jack tries to complain that real vampires don’t work that way, and Van Helsing condescendingly pulls his ear, talks about giant oil-drinking spiders, and generally more-things-in-heaven-and-earths him until he concedes.
- Quincey actually is a secret vampire, but like… a super chill one that wants to kill Dracula anyway.
- The Crew of Light are all native to the Andes, Dracula is a pishtaco, and the narrative is all about a horrible marauding foreigner from the industrialized West with awful plans of conquest.
- The entire production is just a new installment of I Love Toy Trains, but you can occasionally see the plot of the novel go down with tiny little plastic figures.
