Finally a movie review which isn't fluff and a follow-up piece discussing the erotic overtones of vampirism! The write up on House of Dark Shadows delves briefly into the trends with the paranormal in Hollywood and then gives a brief synopsis of what the movie is all about without getting hypercritical of the genre or over-analyzing it. It then segues into the eroticism of the vampire legend while mentioning both the show and the aforementioned movie. The short bit at the end about Frid's bat conservancy efforts only adds to the spread.
