Bela Lugosi´s 129th


Artwork by Gor Mandra for Bela's 129th.

Bela Lugosi was born 129 years ago today. Lugosi,
born October 20, 1882 as Béla Ferenc Dezcö Blasko
in Lugos (at the time part of Austria-Hungary, now
Lugoj in Romania).


He was, he is and will be, the best Dracula that
ever been done. Bela Lugosi's Dracula and can't die.



"Death could kill the Man, but it couldn´t kill the Legend..."


"But first, sent to earth as a vampire.
Your
corpse
will escape from the grave
as a ghost
prowl his
hometown, sucking
the blood of all
yours..."

The Giaour, Lord Byron (1788-1824)

Happy Bela's 129th! Sir, with readers like you, it's worth continuing with Draculand. Next year a Belathon by 130th! Thanks for your comment, a lot. Best Regards Monsieur Cerebus.

Hi, I think you were following my Necrotic Cinema blog. Or at least I seem to following yours :) I had to change the URL for a couple reasons. Things will improve for me but the drawback is I lost all my followers. If you like the sick site can you refollow me at:
