Dramatis Personae Non Grata

What a swarm of old crackpots, reborn
All from formulas hackneyed and worn
Each a boring cliché
Of a horror passe
Now rewarmed for this smackdown, forlorn.

House of Dracula (Erle C. Kenton; 1945) features Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and the Wolf Man, all on their last, wobbly legs. The person who came up with the title is David Cairns.
