Ghostbusters II & Tzimisce Antediluvians

Vigo the Carpathian from Ghostbusters II is the Tzimisce Antediluvian. My friend Jacob and I figured this out over two years ago but after watching Ghostbusters II a few times it's fairly inevitable. First off, Vigo is Carpathian. That one is too easy. Second, he's a sorcerer. Can anyone say koldun? Lastly, and most importantly, he's growing beneath New York City. While we're on the subject, anyone who lacks the mental capacity to think of a good Tzimisce antagonist should look no further than Ghostbusters II. "The Scourge of Carpathia" and "The Sorrow of Moldavia" make for great sobriquets and comments like "On a mountain of skulls in the Castle of Pain I sat on a throne of blood" are fairly stereotypical for the "Dark Ages" sort of Tzimisce.

While I'm at it, I can also prove that the character portrayed by Peter MacNichol (Janos) was a Zantosa Revenant. #1: He's Eccentric, #2: He's a Dillettante and #3: He's Enslaved to Vigo, hereafter known as the Eldest. Well, I play way too much Vampire, but come on, anyone who studies the Tzimisce and has seen Ghostbusters II should have figured it out by now.
