TMS 30 Day Writing Challenge #5

Take a handful of your favourite horror villains and put them in a room together.

Note: I really wasn’t sure how to tackle this one so I’ve done it as ‘a handful of horror villains that I would like to see in a room together’.  – Tyler

Chosen villains:

Kurt Barlow – ‘Salem’s Lot

Kurt Barlow is the master vampire in Stephen King’s 1975 novel ‘Salem’s Lot.  He takes up residence in Jerusalem’s Lot, Maine with his human familiar, Richard Straker. Together, they take on the guise of antique dealers and terrorise the townsfolk. It is suggested that Barlow was once an Austrian nobleman, and he claims to be so old that he predates the founding of Christianity by centuries.

Count Dracula – Dracula 

DRACULA (1958)

Undoubtedly one of the most iconic vampiric creations, Count Dracula rose from the mind of Bram Stoker in 1897. Similarly to Kurt Barlow, Dracula is a Transylvanian nobleman who is also centuries old. It is thought that his creation was based on Vlad the Impaler (the prince of Wallachia), whose cruel reputation and notoriety for impaling his enemies is said to have inspired the character.

Count Von Krolock – The Fearless Vampire Killers, or Pardon Me, But Your Teeth Are In My Neck


Count Von Krolock – a nobleman yet again – is the main antagonist of Roman Polanski’s 1967 film The Fearless Vampire Killers. An obvious parody of Dracula, Von Krolock leads a lonely life, with his only company being his son, Herbert and his servant, Koukol. He steals away a young girl (Sarah, portrayed by Sharon Tate)  with the intent of turning her at the annual dance of the vampires, but finds his plans compromised by the eccentric professor Abronsius and his assistant, Alfred.

David – The Lost Boys

David is a secondary antagonist in Joel Schumacher’s 1987 film The Lost Boys. He is mistakenly believed to be the head vampire of Santa Carla, but while this is not the case, he is the focal figure in the vampiric motorcycle gang that terrorises the town. Little is known of the character’s backstory, but some fan theories suggest that he may have been around since 1906, which is when a hotel caved in at the sea cave known as Hudson’s Bluff, providing the gang with their lair.
