Dracula, bloody good time

Trout’s faithful retelling of Bram Stoker’s Dracula through a vibrant new lens is an eye-popping feat of indie filmmaking.

Theodore Trout, alternative-rock DJ, longtime agent provocateur of The Fish Show, and crazed animator, has released his spawn. Five years in the making, Trout’s faithful retelling of Bram Stoker’s Dracula through a vibrant new lens is at once a thrilling riff and an eye-popping feat of indie filmmaking.

Vampire maven Zahir Blue claims, “Dracula Lord of the Damned looks like it was done on a budget that would pay for maybe a nice car, but with a startling imagination behind it. Every frame looks amazing, with imagination taking the place of expensive digital effects. Here is a Dracula demonic yet human, sexual and predatory, deluded, horrific, alien and somehow tragic.”

Whether you’re a horror fan, a vampire lover, an indie film-ophile, or just out for a ripping good time, see Dracula, Lord of the Damned, Nov. 26, at the Victoria Event Centre, 1415 Broad St. Doors open at 7:30, screening at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door or for advanced tickets, contact Kirsty Barclay at kmbarclay@yahoo.com or 250-508-7739. This is an all-ages, licensed venue (suggested for mature audiences). Fangs, optional.
