Toothless


Brrrrr... Dracula! Scary eh? Undead fiend. Has got big fangs, sucks your blood and that.

This is Bram Stoker's description of him from the book:

'His face was a strong-a very strong-aquiline, with high bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostrils; with lofty domed forehead, and hair growing scantily round the temples, but profusely elsewhere. His eyebrows were very massive, almost meeting over the nose, and with bushy hair that seemed to curl in its own profusion. The mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel-looking, with peculiarly sharp white teeth; these protruded over the lips, whose remarkable ruddiness showed astonishing vitality in a man of his years. For the rest, his ears were pale and at the tops extremely pointed; the chin was broad and strong, and the cheeks firm though thin. The general effect was one of extraordinary pallor.'

What could possibly make the 113 year old novel even more scary mary?

Pictures of double chinned, bouffanted, lardy arse, Frank Langella?

No.





Really, no.

No. No. No. No. No. No.
