"Have you seen that awful den of hellish infamy -- with the very moonlight alive with grisly shapes.
"Have you seen that awful den of hellish infamy -- with the very moonlight alive with grisly shapes. have you felt the vampire's lips upon your throat?" ....the words of Irish novelist Bram Stoker in his book Dracula.
A stake through the heart ended Dracula's nasty habit of drinking human blood as he flitted around mist-shrouded castles in Transylvania. But for eighty years Stoker's horrific creations have been sending shivers up spines. His book's never been out of print and it's spawned I00 movies.
Whether one finds Dracula a scream or a pain in the neck there's no denying his pulling power. And in Dracula country, now a province of Romania, the tourist buses are usually full. Dracula, despite the stake through his heart, is showing increasing signs of life.
