Note to the writer of the plot synopses for DirecTV: Nailed it

IFC's offering at 9 a.m. today: the 1958 camptastic horror flick, Blood of the Vampire.

The IMDb plot synopsis: "A man and wife are terrorized by Mad Scientist Dr. Callistratus who was executed but has returned to life with a heart transplant. Along with his crippled assistant Carl, the 'anemic' Mad Scientist, believed to be a vampire, conducts blood deficiency research on the inmates of a prison hospital for the criminally insane to sustain his return to life."

The DirecTV info plot synopsis: "A couple enters the asylum of a mad vampire doctor and his one-eyed assistant with bangs, Carl."

Nothing sells the movie like very specific details about the henchman's hair style.

  1. How about the 1939 plot summary of "The Wizard of Oz" by the Marin Independent Journal: "Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again."


So, what do you think?
