1)  The first Dracula I can think of is Bela Lugosi, but at the same time, there was a Spanish version, with Carlos Villarías as Dracula.

2)  Warren Zevon, it's one of my favorite songs.

3)  Redrum, or frontwards Murder.

4)  Donavan, it's from the film, also of the same name, directed by George A. Romero  (I found this out, recently.)

5)  The original was directed by Alfred Hitchcock, the "remake"  was directed by Gus Van Sant.

6)  Michael Myers  or The Shape, as he sometimes gets refered to.

A. Fred Kruger is the bastard son of 100 maniacs. His mother was a nurse at the nuthouse and was locked in a ward for the weekend with 100 maniacs who raped her repeatedly...(Why do I remember these things?  :-[ )

Q. What is the original source of the Mike Myers mask? (maybe there's a better way to phrase the question)

Finish the song:

A. Nine Ten never sleep again.

Q. In Trilogy of Terror how does the Zuni doll come to life?

Yeah I thought after I hit post that it might have been nun but I figured same difference. essentially a female who worked in the asylum and was locked in and tortured.
