This "TFTD" episode titled "My Ghostwriter-The Vampire" was one of the better ones for it's spooky yet campy feel as the episode would take a twist in the end and prove that those who seek greed will pay dearly with the price of blood! Jeff Conaway is Peter a struggling vampire horror novelist writer who's running out of ideas and stories he really needs to make it seem real where the readers will believe more of his stories. His only other hobby is his sleeping around with his tramp and slut type of a girlfriend Jayne(Jillie Mack). Then one night appears an actual Vampire named Draco(Roy Dotrice)who starts to tell him actual stories and tales of the real life vampire way. Soon these details go into his next novel work, and you guessed it bloody success only the greed sets in as the profits don't want to be shared and in the end it proves greed doesn't work. Overall good episode despite it's camp and humor.
