Steampunk - Source Material

Recommended Posts

Re: Steampunk - Source Material

 

This is some websites from a old friend of mine:

http://www.johnnypayphone.net/blog.php

http://www.steampunkmagazine.com/ - Okay, I don't know if this is his, but he's one of the contributing authors

http://www.johnnypayphone.net/

 

He's a trained apprenticed Steam engine mechanic... it's pretty wild. He feels he lives the steampunk life, whatever that is... he built his own steam powered sewing machine and makes his own clothing with it.

Actually,the best adaptation of Stoker's work I've seen is not the Coppola abomination, but the BBC mini-series starring Louis Jordan, which is now available on DVD. (Yes,I have a copy).

Another candidate for a steampunk movie is The Werewolf Of London. The title character becomes a werewolf because he goes into a valley in search of a rare night-blooming flower in order to test his artificial moonlight device. Werewolfery (to use a Dr. Yogami term) is portrayed as a very nasty infection.

And did anyone mention R.L.Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde? If anything, that is a definitive fit to the Steampunk genre,that would be it (as well as most of the movie adaptations).

I hadn't heard of this film until now, but it looks really interesting:

 

Les Aventures Extraordinaires D'Adèle Blanc-Sec

 

The film is based on a comic book. Wikipedia article

 

Definatly looks cool. Kind of feels like the Mummy, but with the woman being competent enough to not need a guy to keep saving her. Defiantly something that I want to go see
