I’m not going to lie (and you should never trust someone who starts a sentence with “I’m not going to lie!”), this is really a silly item that is barely worth the tapping to get it.
I honestly have no idea why the designers/programmers thought that this would be a great addition to Halloween…but, here it is.
I get it. The concept is creepy. But for those of us at or nearing retirement age, the idea of being “cocooned” for eternity is just plain weird. Unless of course, you are talking about the way the codgers in the movie “Cocoon” were treated (swimming with hot aliens in a pool that reversed the aging process). But, I digress…
Boom! And just like that, we are thrown back into the world of old school vampires, and mummies, and werewolves! Oh My!
I have loads of questions about mummies, but we won’t get there for quite some time. So, perhaps I’ll just stick with what we DO have…an old school look at Dracula (and family) from a Simpsons perspective.
We are going to get a ton of Old School Dracula stuff. And by “old school” I mean the good old kind of vampire that flies around like a bat, wears a cape, and doesn’t so much like the sun. These are not the kind we have seen in the silly, violent, over-sexed modern day vampires we see in TV and movies these days. And let’s be honest…when you start your career like Robert Pattinson, with a hacky, horrible movie like “Twilight,” you are pretty much doomed to be the “cute guy with fangs” for the rest of your life. It is WAY better to make your mark as an older, wiser, Transylvanian Dracula, like Bela Lugosi. No type casting there! But, I digress…
