Hallowe’en episode, everyone! Take a trip with us to Austria, birthplace of Mircalla Karnstein and resurrection place of… a German-language musical adaptation of a Roman Polanski film with music by Jim Steinman?

Really, there’s no way to describe Tanz der Vampire in a way that does it justice. So be prepared, starchild, for discussions of women, Drew Sarich, a terrible Roman Polanski movie, epic rocking, tragic sunbathing accidents, and a Broadway bomb so big it could only be saved by your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.

The Bloodsucking Feminists will be making a donation to their local trans-friendly rape crisis centre. We encourage you to do the same.
