Two Punctures in Her Neck, and not a Drop of Blood in Her Body

On August 10, 2004, for the first and only time in the history of the Empire State Building, every light was turned off for fifteen minutes, in memory if actor Fay Wray, who passed in her sleep two days earlier, only a few weeks shy of her 97th birthday.

Cary Grant and twenty-five-year-old Fay Wray were starring in a Broadway play when her friend and World War One heroic aviator Merian Cooper asked her if she would be interested in appearing in a series of horror motion pictures.

During the next year she filmed scenes for several horror movies, including “The Most Dangerous Game,” “Mystery at the Wax Museum,” this movie, “The Vampire Bat,” and one more called “King Kong.” Largely from these movies Fay Wray would become known as the first ‘Scream Queen’ in motion pictures.

Fay Wray remembers asking about the King Kong movie, saying that Coop promised her that her leading man for that one would be the tallest, darkest leading man in Hollywood. She hoped that it would be Cary Grant, but we all know that her most famous movie would pit her against an 18-inch model, and giant rubber fingers of a hand. Fay Wray spent most of her later years in New York City, and once remarked that every time she passes the Empire State Building she says a little prayer, because one of her best friends died there.

In this adventure she is an assistant to a doctor living in a castle, near a small village. As our story begins, the town folk are gossiping about the mysterious deaths that are happening regularly. Every victim is found to have two small bite marks in their neck, and every drop of blood has been drained from their bodies. The doctor she works with will help her boyfriend, played by a very young Melvyn Douglas, search for the killer.

They believe that the killer must be a madman, and not the legendary Vampire creature from their historic past. But some believe that a Vampire man still roams the country side and can only be stopped by pounding a wooden stake through his heart. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
