Here's the first of several "Dracula" lobby cards to show you this week, with the rest after the jump!
Okay, I was wrong... only two, unless "two" counts as "several," which it doesn't!
My fellow cross-genre geeks will either know or recognize that the Power Records book and record set above is based on an issue of Marvel's "Tomb of Dracula" comic book!
This is a weird one... if you've ever heard the "A Story of Dracula, the Wolfman and Frankenstein" album, this record is a re-release of part of that! What, you don't know what album I'm talking about?
It's this one:
And next, we have the German poster for "Dracula AD 1972" -- and I'm guessing the poster designer purposely has Drac's eyes focused up the lass' skirt!
Here's the Italian poster... same Dracula face as the primary image!
Spanish poster - odd that they painted a new image of that big Drac face, eh?
Apparently the Spanish poster designers did weird stuff with all their Dracula-related posters, as witness this poster for "Dracula Has Risen From the Grave"!
Or even this Spanish poster for "Dracula, Prince of Darkness"!
Here's the Argentina poster for "Dracula, Prince of Darkness"!
A weird still from a weird movie... "Bride of the Gorilla"!
Have any of you ever seen "Fire-Maidens From Outer Space"?
Next, here's an Italian poster for "First Men in the Moon"!
This British quad poster for "The Fly" kind of gives away the ending, doesn't it?
I find this poster a bit better about not giving things away!
And here's a Japanese poster for "Frankenstein Conquers the World," aka "Frankenstein Vs. Barugon"
And that should tell you that when we get to next week's "Monster Monday," we'll feature Frankenstein items!
