Plotz Structure

The structure seems wacky, ungainly
It gets stuck tracking Dracula, mainly
But the pace starts to pick up
By erasing this hiccup
When the sucker gets whacked inhumanely.

David Cairns with Surly Hack

In House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944), each of the three monsters, in turn, gets their own story. Dracula (John Carradine) is up first, and both he and his segment fizzle when his coffin is left out in the sun.
