Reading now :: Dracula :: Watching now

After reading-&-rantingly-loving Carmilla (here and here, and a review to comeno, it’s not there yet), I decided to give Dracula a try. After all, Bram Stoker got his mustard from Sheridan Le Fanu, so how bad could it get?

Pretty bad. Well, no, honestly — execrably bad.
