On the soundtrack there are some tracks with the word “Toolbox” in the title. Does anyone know what exactly is meant by this?

.I don't know but my guess they were to be used wherever they wanted.

It has been speculated earlier in this post that these were cues recorded “wild” to be placed where the filmmakers saw fit. This makes sense for the shorter bits, but doesn't quite fit the D21 track. However, given that the documentation on this score was so sparse, I wouldn't expect solid answers beyond what is in the notes.

In the booklet of this edition I found a few statements that I do not want to let stand uncontradicted.

____

“I had put Dracula, the historical figure, together with the book – which is what Stoker did.”

However, this is a very simplified and abbreviated account, because Stoker does not explicitly write that Dracula is Vlad the Impaler. There are several annotated editions of the novel that deal with this issue in detail.

____

“When I read Stoker, I went: wait a minute, this is a guy that got a three-way. (…)”

No. Harker describes that only one of the three women approached him to “kiss” him. The other two are not involved in this action.

____

“Here Stoker was talking about a ménage à quatre with three extraordinary women, and he even talks about how one of them looked like Lucy.”

He doesn’t. Harker writes:

“The other was fair, as fair as can be, with great wavy masses of golden hair and eyes like pale sapphires. I seemed somehow to know her face, and to know it in connection with some dreamy fear, but I could not recollect at the moment how or where.”

Although Lucy is indeed blonde in the novel, this passage refers to a chapter Stoker deleted from the novel called Dracula’s Guest. In the manuscript, Harker remembers where he saw the blonde vampire:

“As he spoke I was looking at the fair woman and it suddenly dawned on me that she was the woman – or her image – that I had seen in the tomb on Walpurgis night.”

At no point does Harker write that the blonde vampire looks like Lucy.

Since the Comic Book Guy is capable of discussion and can contribute more in discussions than repetitive phrases like “Holy shit” and “Holy Christ,” I’ll take that as a compliment.
Soundtrack releases are discussed here, and I’ve pointed out and commented on a few content errors in the booklet.
