November 11 in Goth and Horror History

Interview with the Vampire Blu-Ray, on Amazon

November 11, 1994 - Interview With the Vampire - Movie - Released

November 11, 2001 - Feast of All Saints - TV Movie - Aired

Two of Anne Rice's stories made into a movie and a miniseries. Though like Anne I had my doubts about Tom Cruise as Lestat, the film has aged well and is still enjoyable to re-watch.

I went to see this because Sarah Michelle Gellar starred in it, but I regretted it. Boring.

November 4 in Goth and Horror History

November 4, 1982 - Dominique Dunne - Actress - Died

November 4, 1994 - Frankenstein - Movie - Released

November 4, 1998 - Gods and Monsters - Movie - Released

Dominique Dunne, who played the older sister in Poltergeist, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend.

I was disappointed by Kenneth Branagh's Frankenstein. Noisy, boring, and drones on and on. Sort of like the director. But hey, it stars DeNiro as The Creature.

Before Brendan Fraser got chunky, he turned in a beautiful performance in Gods and Monsters with the legendary Ian McKellen.
