I didn’t think it was possible.
I was the weird little kid, straight out of a Tim Burton movie, drawing pictures of myself at a monster castle at age 4. And yet I think it’s happening.
I have vampire fatigue. And it’s my damn Dracula project’s fault.
Not that the work wasn’t interesting. Watching 9 key Dracula movies and analyzing 6 key scenes from each movie to see how the levels of violence change as they become more contemporary. Except I strongly detest two of the movies… Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and the 1979 fiasco with Frank Langella and Laurence Olivier. And then there’s the results.
Or rather the implied results… stuff I can’t code and quantify but mention in “Discussion.” Well, at least they’re significant, and my hypothesis is correct. With a couple outliers (the 1970s– quel surprise), adaptations of Dracula do become more violent as the films become more current.
I need a vacation.
