Erin Moran has passed away at the age of 56. May she rest in peace. She is best known for her role as Joanie Cunningham on Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi.
Like how Jonathan stays at a hotel called The Golden Krone on the way to the castle, whereas Thomas stays at The Golden Crown. And the three vampire ladies are just one named The Countess.
(They even have a floor plan for the castle, in the midst of all the extra things they discuss.)

Something unknown and sinister is coming for them all…
In other Dracula related news, I just now ordered Powers of Darkness: The Lost Version of Dracula. It’s the Icelandic version, which was originally published/translated into that in 1900, and now finally translated into English--with extra characters and a few other differences in the plot from the original novel, from all I’ve heard. I’ll finally get to see how different it is.
First, the main story:

Dracula may have been defeated, but the future has never been less certain for Jonathan and Mina. Everything has changed, most especially the Harkers themselves…

Some personalities are magnetic, they exert an irresistible pull on others.
They are everything I wanted to see from this fandom when I posted my letter. So, again, if you happen to lurk, dear writers, and haven’t already seen the comments on the archive, thank you a million times over. It was lovely to wake up to these two wonderfully dark stories.
As I have no icons from Dracula (1968), I’ll just use one for Dracula in general.
I will be rewatching the Spanish version of Dracula (1931) tonight in her honor. I had planned to watch it anyway, so this is a good excuse for it. The DVD has a quick bit with her in The Road To Dracula, too.
Tony Neyman has also passed away, at the age of 80. May he rest in peace. MST3K fans and bad movie fans will remember him as the Master in Manos: The Hands of Fate. It’s the 50th anniversary of Manos this year, and Neyman reprised his role for the upcoming follow-up film Manos Returns prior to his death.
I’m re-reading the novel right now, actually. I know for a fact that I should definitely nominate Jonathan Harker, and Mina Harker. I'm being attacked by prompts to ask for when it comes to Jonathan anyway. I might nominate Lucy Westenra for the third character. The fourth is either going to be Dracula or Van Helsing.
ETA: And so it's settled--the fourth character nomination for the Dracula novel will be Van Helsing, and I'll cross my fingers and hope others nominate the rest of the cast.
Maximilian Schell has passed away at the age of 83, as a result of “a sudden and serious illness.” May he rest in peace. I mostly remember him from The Black Hole (1979), and his role of Hamlet--since the latter aired on MST3K.
John Cacavas has passed away at the age of 83. May he rest in peace. He was a film and tv composer. Among his work was the theme for Kojak, which I’ve been watching every Sunday evening lately, courtesy of Me-TV. I haven’t seen the movies he did that MST3K showed. The only films he did composition for which I have seen appear to be The Satanic Rites of Dracula, and Horror Express.

As a passing note as to how cluttered Nellie’s house was? Her daughter hired a cleaning crew. They’ve brought the back of a semi truck to cart things off, with extra dumpsters. They’ve been working almost non-stop (they took a break on Sunday afternoon) since Friday. They’ve hauled that thing away six times to the dump and back, and they’ve only made it into the living room. They get here at 7 AM every morning, and they don’t stop until 6 PM.
