IT'S ALMOST GONE VIRAL! It's a REAL treat! The television series, that never was. And that's a REAL shame. Edited for fun by Ed Glaser, this short trailer tribute, has gone almost viral! What a great tv series this would have made. All it needs is the familiar voice over and graphic that says, 'A Quinn Martin Production'! Great job, Ed. Thank you.
HOW THIS CAME ABOUT, Glaser says this: 'My wife and I have been watching Hammer horror movies all month. We got to “Dracula A.D. 1972,” the first of their two “Dracula in modern day” films, and both of us realized that despite all the groovy youth generation stuff, the film was _all about_ Peter Cushing, in his immaculate wardrobe, solving the mystery of Dracula’s resurrection. Eventually he teams up with a police inspector and both my wife and I thought “this is practically a pilot for a ’70s occult cop show! It’s ‘The Van Helsing Mysteries!'” And the incredible ’70s soundtrack just reinforces it.
The sequel, “The Satanic Rites of Dracula,” follows the same characters, which gave it even more of a TV series feel. So, just to amuse my wife, I cut a silly fake intro to “The Van Helsing Mysteries” using footage and music from “1972.” All it needed was the NBC Mystery Movie font (Folio Bold Extended) in “awful ’70s yellow” and voila! Honestly I never expected more than a few people would find it amusing. Incidentally, somewhere among the Facebook comments was a compliment from the director of Kolchak: The Night Stalker. I about had a heart attack.
