Take a look at the trailer for Slither and ask yourself if, by some wild chance, the writer might have been influenced by Night of the Creeps. Classic film.

Ah, you are correct when you say "When Francis Ford Coppola released BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA – there was good reason for putting Bram’s name in the title.", but the reason is that they did not have rights to the title "Dracula", not that they were trying for an especially faithful adaptation.

That is kinda the reason the credit cards have auth numbers on the back.... Gotta blame the "system" on that one, for not using the security measures already in place to prevent that problem. I'm not sure why it reminds me of the "Woolworth" Social Security number from the late '30s. Back when the whole thing was new, a Wallet maker put in a facsimile of the new social security card as a display of how the wallet pockets worked. Even though the card was about half size, marked "specimen", and printed in red, scads of people decided it was real. As I recall, there were still dozens of people using the number printed on it as late as the '70s, and Social Security reported as many as 40,000 people had claimed it as theirs over the years.
