I found Dracula on Netflix! Big news day around here.
It was an exciting day when I discovered the Dracula movie on Netflix. In all honesty I’ve checked for it a few times so either it was just added or I have been spelling it wrong.
I found Dracula on Netflix!
Here’s how it played out. If you look carefully at the screen shot you’ll see I was watching Bram Stoker’s Dracula on December 24. And that’s true, but it was at 1:00 a.m. December 24.
And the reason I was up so late? Because I had a custom hand-knitted arm warmer order and was on a Christmas-day deadline. So I had to pull a near-nighter to finish.
To stay entertained while I knit like a mad person (although my description isn’t really limited to this one experience) I browsed around to see what was on. New Releases…hmm…what’s this? Vampires? Hmm…I’m awake…and it says it’s a faux-documentary. And I can always turn it off.
Here’s what I saw: Vampires by Vincent Lannoo
Now, I know this is a different show than Dracula but it’s part of the story. I thought I could handle a light mockumenatry about a vampire family in Belgium. But once I started watching I wasn’t so sure. It was so dumb. However, I stuck with it (too lazy to find the remote) and it started getting awesome. So funny.
Like, so funny.
And when the family got exiled to Canada well, I was fully engaged.
I think they captured the French Canadian culture really well. And there’s one scene where they talk about the Quebecois French vs. Belgian French and I was practically rolling off the couch laughing.
Oh, it’s all in French. I should mention that too. English subtitles though, which is good.
So yes, this was a fake documentary about a family of vampires and a little look into every day vampire culture. I was skeptical but you know what? It was a very entertaining way to spend a couple hours in the middle of the night by myself.
