"Pretty Boy Mommy Issues"

Films: Brides of Dracula (1960)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted Home/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: What's that? You thought you were going to see Peter Cushing fight Dracula again? Oh, how gullible of you. That poster knew what you wanted, and instead you get this baby-faced prissy boy.

History: The result of Count Dracula's bite, Baron Meinster was the black sheep of a Baroness who locked him up for his transformation. Driven insane by isolation and regret, Baron converted his mother into a vampire after escaping, and soon began to amass a harem of vampires for himself.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After some holy water from Van Helsing melts off half his faces, Meinster finds himself confronted by a giant windmill in the shape of a cross, killing him slowly.

Powers/Abilities: Meinster can bite people and convert them into vampires.

Weakness: Anything of holy signifigance.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-Baron is definitely an active vamp for sure, and he loves showing those fangs, but that insufferably punchable face and curly hair make him look like a spoiled brat desperately trying to ride the coattails of the one who cursed him.

Trivia: -Some working titles for this film were "Dracula 2" and "Disciple of Dracula". We prefer the second one.

-Meinster was played by David Peel, who immediately retired from acting after this to pursue life as an estate agent.

Most evil? Well, certainly vile, we'll say.

Don't trust that cherub-like face.

"Ew, a girl!"

Some of his "brides", so to speak.

"I know! I'll choke the blood from you!"

"Great. He got blood all over our heads. Kind like a demented pigeon."

"My shampoo. NOW."
Look, you're not the Prince of Darkness, okay?

For a second, I thought Mienster was also a bride.
