The Movie: Lair of the White Worm (1988)
What Is It?: Ken Russell’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s mess is also a mess. Unlike the novel, the film is a hilarious, sexy, free-spirited, imaginative, hallucinatory, delightfully offensive (as opposed to Stoker’s just plain offensive) mess. All hail Amanda Donohoe!
Why Today?: On this day in 1847, Bram Stoker is born.
