FoodnFlix May 2018 Announcement

Spudguns! It's that time again, I am hosting Foodn'Flix one last time, (it is #5 for me as host) and my selection is the 1992 version of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

If you've never seen this, I have to say that it is one of, if not the closest movie versions to the original novel. With a nod to the real Vlad Tepes, this makes for a spellbinding story.
This is literally the last of the "golden age of movies" film. All the effects were done physically in-camera with film layering, wire workings, shadow play, reversing film speed, puppets,etc. 

Brief plot:  After returning from the crusades, Dracula learns of his wife's suicide. Centuries later, he arrives in London, and begins the search for the reincarnation of his dead wife. He manipulates and seduces those closest to her, stopping at nothing to get what he desires most.

This movie is Rated-R  for sexuality, nudity and violence.

The rules are simple:
you watch the movie, head to the kitchen baking/cooking anything that it inspires you to. Post your inspiration to your blog with a link to both this post, and the Foodn'Flix website. The post must be current, in this case the month of May 2018.

Send me a copy of your link with your name, the name of your blog, your recipe and a photo of it. Or give me permission to pull a photo.  domesticanddamned (at) gmail (dot) com   With the email title of  "Foodn'Flix Submisson"
Don't forget to send a copy to our fearless leader Heather at  heather@foodnflixclub.com

Deadline is Wednesday May 30th 2018 6pm EST.  I plan to post round up the next day.

  1. Just watched this for the first time this weekend. Wow. Cocktails and blood sausage skewers tonight. Post will be up soon. Thanks for hosting.

    1. Great! I look forward to seeing your thoughts on it.

  2. I was just about ready to rent the film and I though I should pop over to FnF to make sure it was the right one for this month. Doh! Sorry. It's been a bit hectic....But, I can't wait to see what everyone makes!
