Five Moody Castlevania Memes

There isn’t enough of the Castlevania anime, and there aren’t enough Castlevania memes, but I’m here to at least bring you a few.

Me In Class

I first rejected this as being barely a joke. The bell part is the only part that connects! But I just kept thinking about it. I’ve laughed in class because I’ve randomly remembered a meme. People do not appreciate it. He’s a bell. Look at his face. Really an underappreciated meme, even by me.


Curses Can Be Flirting

You know, honestly? Any one of these three could seduce me with their history knowledge. Obviously Alucard lived some of it, and Sypha reads so many books. They should be writing the history books, not just talking about them. And what an opening line. Hi, want to hear about my history book? Girl, yes. I really really do.


They Support It?

This never really made sense to me. Like, ok. Dracula is kind of a nihilist, so I can see why he’d want this. But what about the humans? Like, it tried to give them pretty good motivation, but it still seems like they’ll be killed, just, like, last. And what about the vampires who help him? What in the world do they think they’re gonna eat when there are no humans? How did Drac get people on this wagon in the first place?

Okay, so obviously I’m Sypha, but I’m just her in general. We STAN a magic nerd, I swear. Like, if I could choose between that and being like, a knight or whatever, or being a vampire, you know what I’m choosing. Did I just out myself as the kind of person who always plays a mage? Whatever, it’s true. All of these are entire moods, though.

First Look At Netflix’s Upcoming ‘Dracula’ Adaptation!

Sink your teeth into this, vampire fans. A new Dracula tv series, based on the original novel by Bram Stoker, is coming to Netflix and the BBC. While not airing for quite a while (the supernatural drama is expected to air in late 2019 or early 2020), what details have been revealed are quite salivating. According to The Radio Times  the series will be a collaboration between the BBC and Netflix, with the two corporations working together to air the series. Dracula will be helmed by the creators of SherlockSteven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Dracula himself will be played by Claes Bang, a Danish actor who said he would be ‘thrilled’ by the opportunity. He was further quoted as saying:


“I am thrilled to be taking on the role of Dracula, especially when the script is in the hands of the incredible talents of Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and the team responsible for Sherlock.”


Bang will be joined by a wide ensemble of actors to help bring the bloody world of Dracula to life. Actors Joanna Scanlan, Chanel Cresswell, Matthew Beard, Lydia West, Dolly Wells, John Heffernan, Lujza Richter and Morfydd Clark, Paul Brennen, Sofia Oxenham, John McCrea, Phil Dunster and Millicent Wong will be joining the drama in as-yet unknown roles. Mark Gatiss himself will also be in the cast, having expressed an interest in playing Dracula’s mad henchman Renfield. But nothing is set in stone yet.

The show will last approximately three episodes, each of undisclosed length but since this is from the creators of Sherlock, we’re guessing each episode will be movie length in runtime, an hour or more to get their money’s worth of the material. The show’s plot will be, naturally, an adaptation of the Dracula novel but offering a new spin to make it relevant to modern audiences. Moffat said the show will re-centre Dracula as the hero of his own story, as opposed to the antagonist he was in the book and most other adaptations. He will be at the center of the action, as opposed to a more shadowy figure who makes fleeting appearances to menace the heroes. Moffat and Gatiss described the process as difficult, keen to give Dracula center stage but also not take away from his evil at all. They hope their hard work pays off and say they ‘handled’ making Dracula both the main character and truly evil. But we’ll have to wait to see how that plays out onscreen.

The series is currently in production, having recently completed its second episode. The show is currently filming at Bray Studios, Maidenhead, which was also the location of many classic vampire films starring Christopher Lee as the titular Count, made by Hammer Film Productions. Not much else is known about the show at this time, how closely it will adapt the book or even what the plot will be but the BBC released a short synopsis as a little teaser:

‘Three feature length episodes will re-introduce the world to Dracula, the vampire who made evil sexy. In Transylvania in 1897, the blood-drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. And be warned: the dead travel fast.’

We can’t wait to see this adaptation of a classic horror novel coming to television. We’ll keep our eyes and ears peeled for further developments. Until then, watch the shadows and keep your garlic close!
