    TV Picks: 'The Returned,' 'The Graduates,' Welles' 'War,' 'Dracula'
    "The Returned" (Sundance Channel, Thursdays). A French miniseries in eight parts, based on a 2004 film of the same French name ("Les Revenants") but a different English one ("They Came Back"). The word "zombie" is often mentioned in press for the series,...
  • 'Lord of the Flies' still a terrifying favorite

    What's the scariest book you read in school? For me, it wasn't "Dracula" by Bram Stoker or Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" -- it was "Lord of the Flies." William Golding's "Lord of the Flies" told a dystopic story of schoolboys marooned on a remote,...

  • TV Review: NBC's 'Dracula' Doesn't Suck

    Concocting some playful twists on the well-worn Dracula mythology, NBC's international version of Bram Stoker's bloodsucker transforms him into a revenge-seeking schemer -- someone with a "Death Wish" in more ways than one, waging war against a shadowy...
  • Kinetic Theory fosters young circus strengths in 'Dracula'

    Kinetic Theory fosters young circus strengths in 'Dracula'
    Kinetic Theory's theatrical take on Bram Stoker's "Dracula" brings the story a uniquely fitting supernatural flair. Dracula ascends a rope upside down. Vampire brides fold into hyper-extended balls and roll eerily toward the audience. Vampire hunters,...
  • NBC's 'Dracula' aims for a sexy revamp with Jonathan Rhys Meyers

    NBC's 'Dracula' aims for a sexy revamp with Jonathan Rhys Meyers
    This is not your great-great grandfather's Dracula. It's NBC's — and that means in this lush, re-imagined world, the mysterious count made famous in Bram Stoker's 1897 classic now has washboard abs, is posing as an American (vampire) in London,...

    Vampires of New England at New London's Garde Arts Center
