  1. Innocent Children (and Dogs) Had Better Beware: Cruella de Vil Cast For Once Upon a Time

    The curl of her lips, the ice of her...wait, we've already got too much ice this season.

  2. Syfy’s Newest Series Has The Most Ridiculous/Wonderful Premise I’ve Ever Heard

    Nuts to moderation.

    Syfy knows that today's intelligent TV viewer has diverse interests (the paranormal, swords, men who look good in a deerstalker). But why should modern consumers need to watch more than one show to satisfy all of our passions? Are we animals?

    Who's up for a field trip?

    It's monster season! But how do archaeologists on a restoration effort at a creepy abandoned castle get involved in the Halloween fun—aside from the fact that their work location is basically a Scooby Doo set? Why, they uncover the dungeon that likely held the man who was part of the inspiration for Dracula, of course!

  4. Minimalist Movie Posters, Made With Simple Sheets Of Paper

    Get on my wall.

    It feels almost unnecessary to write anything about artwork that manages to say so much with so little. My hat is off to the folks at Spanish design studio Atipo, who have proven the old adage about pictures being worth a thousand words.

  7. Treat Yo’ Self to Tears: Next Season Of Parks and Recreation Will Be Its Last

    Officially Official

    Remember that time when everyone was freaking out about Parks and Recreation’s unannounced hiatus because it made it look like NBC’s perpetual critical success/ratings-not-so-success was probably going to be cancelled? We lucked out that time, ‘cause it turned out there wasn’t really a hiatus after all. But this time it's a bit of a good news-bad news situation. The good news! Parks and Rec is getting a seventh season. The bad news! No more after that.

  12. NBC’s Dracula Series Gets A Trailer, Is Inexplicably Odd

    Consider the Following

    After watching this trailer for NBC's new Dracula series starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, I can honestly say I have no idea what they're going for here. The trailer is, for lack of a better word, weird. Everything about it just feels...weird. And this is coming from a person who legitimately enjoyed Dracula 2000. It does have a few actors from other genre shows we enjoy though and it's set to air Friday nights this fall. Will you be watching? (via NBC) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  15. Too Lazy To Turn A Page? Read Classic Novels On A Poster Instead!

    Curiouser and curiouser!

    Spineless Classics (awesome name, btw) sells posters with entire novels printed on them. But can you actually read them if so inclined? "Hard as it may be to believe, each one of our designs contains the full text of the book. Where there are shapes in the design, the words wrap to the edges rather than being removed or shaded," they write. "The apparent font size is roughly 4 point which is perfectly legible with the naked eye if you have 20/20 vision, or with light magnification if you don't." Check out what books like Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Dracula, and more look like when laid out flat.

  16. NBC’s Dracula Casts Its Van Helsing

    Bloody Good Fun

    We've been keeping up with NBC's Victorian London-set Dracula because… well, it looks like it could be interesting. Its supporting cast (Merlin's Katie McGrath, Game of Thrones's Nonso Anozie, Arrow's Jessica De Gouw) is delightfully geeky, too. And now that geek-friendly cast has two more members: Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Jonathan Harker and Thomas Kretschmann as legendary monster-hunter Abraham Van Helsing. It'll be a few years yet until I can read that name without shuddering. I blame you, Hugh Jackman.

  17. Merlin and Game of Thrones Actors Join Arrow‘s Huntress on NBC’s Dracula

    Bloody Good Fun

    We previously learned that Jessica De Gouw, aka Arrow's Huntress, would be playing Mina Murray to Jonathan Rhys Meyers' Drac (or Alan Grayson in the show, because Dracula is an awfully conspicuous name) in NBC's Victorian era-set Dracula. And now comes the news that the show's gotten even more genre-tastic with the addition of two new cast members: Katie McGrath and Nonso Anozie. Or Morgana from Merlin and Xaro Xhoan Daxos from Game of Thrones. This pleases me.

  19. Landslide at Church Featured in Dracula Sends Corpses Spilling From Their Graves

    St. Mary's Church in the English town of Whitby is one of those place so spooky and gothic that just seeing it, you can't help but find yourself thinking of hunchbacks, crashing lightning, and hounds baying in the distance. Well, maybe you could, but Bram Stoker couldn't.  The clifftop church and its adjoining cemetery inspired his novel Dracula, and by extension shaped horror fiction for generations to come. Recently, though, the church has been the real life site of a scene that could have been plucked from a horror novel as landslides near the cemetery at the cliff's edge have resulted in piles of human remains tumbilng into the town below.

  20. How Dracula’s Birthday Taught Me To Trust Campy Lesbian Vampire Comedies

    It was on May 26th in 1897 that Bram Stoker's vampire novel Dracula first made its way onto bookstore shelves and into popular lore. When I just recently learned this fact, I raised my fists to the air, thinking loudly, "This is the day that 113 years ago, a course of events was put into motion that ultimately led to Twilight! Curses!" I had, of course, assumed that as the definitive piece of vampire literature, Dracula was also the first. But you know what they say: When you assume, you make incorrect claims about the ancient origins of irritating popular culture phenomena. Or something to that effect. After a bit of research, just to confirm my disdain was well founded, I realized it wasn't. Dracula was actually preceded and inspired by the work Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, which came out in 1872. This novel, the real first vampire novel (though still not the first piece of vampire fiction), tells the story of a lesbian vampire who seduces a young girl and manipulates her family. Wait a minute. Carmilla sounds familiar. Lesbian vampires. I've got it! It turns out, this movie wasn't the completely random romp I once considered it to be:
