Crossover Movie Poster: Blood


In 1884, Dr. Lawrence Orlovsky and his wife Regina move from Budapest to a house in America. Regina needs blood to survive, so Lawrence and their servants inject her with extracts from a blood-drinking plant he’s growing. Lawrence has inherited the curse of lycanthropy from his father, Lawrence Talbot, while Regina is a vampire like her own father, Count Dracula. Later, Dr. Frankenstein buys the Orlovsky house. Given the 1884 date, this Lawrence Talbot can’t be the same one seen in The Wolf Man and other works, but since we know Larry isn’t the only werewolf in the family, he must be a relative. Regina might be the daughter of one of Dracula’s soul-clones rather than the true Lord of the Vampires. Dr. Frankenstein is another member of the lineage of monster makers.

This crossover is one of hundreds included in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, to be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2 by Win Scott Eckert! And for those interested, here's a link to my review of the film!
