Overview

"There was a deliberate voluptuousness which was both thrilling, and repulsive, and as she arched her neck, she actually licked her lips like an animal...."

Transylvania, Eastern Europe:
Jonathan Harker, a young English Lawyer, journeys through beautiful countryside to meet with a nobleman at his castle with the aim to finalise the sale of a house in London. As he travels, he is warned by local peasants about his destination and of the feared inhabitant of the castle, �Count Dracula.� Harker is given crucifixes and charms to ward away evil, accompanied with ominous words of ill-boding that he later translates as��Vampire.�
Frightened, nervous and apprehensive, but no less determined, Jonathan continues on to meet the Count�s carriage as scheduled, however the journey to the castle is far from comfortable; wolves relentlessly hound the carriage as Jonathan Harker waits helplessly in his small, rickety confines, until his journeys end.
Upon his arrival, Harker is confronted with a huge, dilapidated old building and is greeted by the elderly Count Dracula who appears, on the surface, to be a well educated and hospitable gentleman�
But little does Jonathan know of the dark secrets that fill the crumbling castle walls and after only a few days, Harker realises that he is no longer a guest, but a prisoner of the ghastly Count.
As long hours pass by, Harker investigates his surroundings and becomes increasingly uneasy about the Count and his devilish intentions...

"The castle is a veritible prison, and i am prisoner!"

England, soon afterwards:
A number of bizarre events begin to occur in Victorian England; an unmanned Russian ship, loaded with fifty crates of earth from Transylvania, runs aground near the town of Whitby, the crew missing and the Captain dead; a young woman suffers strange puncture wounds on her neck and a crazed inmate of a lunatic asylum warns of the impending arrival of someone or something he calls �Master.�

Bram Stoker created, what many consider, a masterpiece in the genre of horror, inspiring generations of Vampire stories, both in film and print. The story of Dracula probes deeply into our psyches and asks questions about the very fabric of human nature, identity and our sanity, and brings to light the darkness of Victorian sexuality and desire, as it does in modern times.
