  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Leon: You knew that would happen, didn't you?
      Count D: Let's get back to the shop and talk. It's about time for afternoon tea. I can serve you a delicious pie with lots of chocolate and custard cream.

    • Count D: Such loving creatures human parents are. That's exactly how you killed your daughter, the real Alice, spoiling her to no end since she was little, giving her anything and everything she wanted, never scolding her when she did wrong. And how did she turn out? Withdrawn from family and society, repeating crime after crime and hurting others. In the end, she herself was destroyed by drug addiction.
      Mrs. Hayward: I didn't want her to hate me! I loved her!

    • Count D: Welcome to my pet shop. I am Count D. This is Chinatown, a mysterious place with many rare and valuable commodities. Tonight, you shall find something you desire.

    • Count D: As you breached the term of the contract, I'm afraid we cannot assume any responsibilities for the consequences.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Alice and rabbits--Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

      Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the assumed name Lewis Carroll. It is about a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole into a bizarre land where she is confronted by abnormal beings, both human and animal alike. The original tale is extremely dark in comparison to the commonly-known Disney movie.

    • What you need is the Pied Piper of Hamelin.

      The Piper is a legend, documented by the Brothers Grimm, which tells of an unusual disaster that occurred in the town of Hamelin, Germany, on 26 June 1284. The town of Hamelin was suffering from a rat infestation. One day, a man claiming to be a rat-catcher played a musical pipe to lure the rats with a song into the Weser river, where all of them drowned.
