Dracula

I love these matte paintings by John P. Fulton, from the 1931 production of Dracula. (For scale, look for the tiny carriage in each.)

These remind me strongly of the locations from the game "Shadow of the Colossus" (incidentally the only other visual work that transports me as completely and as utterly as Myst does) -- the scale, and the vagueness of the castle in the background, and the sense of curious isolation in particular. I love that kind of ambiguity!

...Perhaps I'm just a sucker for huge, eerie rock formations.
