Rest in peace, eternally thirsty Christopher Lee (1922-2015)

Christopher Lee

A painting I did in honor of the great Christopher Lee. Besides the Dracula films, my favorite films of his are the Hitchcock-tinged Scream of Fear (1961), the sadomasochistic The Whip and the Body (1963), Jess Franco’s Eugenie… the Story of Her Journey into Perversion (1970) loosely adapted from the Marquis de Sade’s Philosophy in the Boudoir (one of my favorite books), and the Bond film The Man With the Golden Gun (1974).  And I can’t forget his TV appearances in the Alfred Hitchcock Hour and The Avengers. May you finally be able to quench your bloodlust, Dracula.
