The vampire movie we really need

Louis Proyect at The Unrepetant Marxist comments in a post called Monster Movie Bash:

Someday Hollywood might make the vampire movie we really need, one in which the Dracula figure is a hedge fund manager or an oil company executive. This will be the fitting epigraph rolling across the screen in the opening credits:

Capital is dead labour, that, vampire-like, only lives by sucking living labour, and lives the more, the more labour it sucks.
–Karl Marx, Capital V. 1
