|I'll have to get back to you on how that went, as I haven't seen it yet.|
But it is a good question...where are the young gothic horror fans? Are there still any left or have they all gotten too old to really be counted among the young, like myself? Well, that's the question this short film asks without really outright asking. It focuses on a young boy named Sam who adores the classic monsters, but none more so than Count Dracula himself. And who can blame him? Drac's the man. He's got the looks, the mysterious allure, the raw power, and a reputation for not staying down.

Without further a-boo, let's take a bite out of this little kid freindly flick. We find Sam sitting with his Grandma watching television when a new Dracula action figure is advertised and he practically begs her to get it for him. But, like many parents, she says that maybe Santa will bring it to him at Christmas. But Sam finds that idea dull, and the prospect of waiting for an awesome figure is even worse. On that, I would have to agree. There's nothing worse than waiting for an awesome monster to set up in your menagerie. It's much better to get them as quickly as possible, especially when the month of October is going. Cue Sam realizing that it is, in fact, October and Halloween is coming a lot sooner than Christmas. This gives him the rather brilliant idea to write to a different mythological immortal figure, as he writes to Count Dracula himself.

|A freaking hot dog calls Dracula lame. I'd look for a joke there but I'm too busy shaking my head.|
|"And remember, nothing is scarier than crabs, Sam. Have a good night."|
|It's all in the eyes.|
