Dracula - The True Story DVD

Dracula remains perhaps the most famous and influential horror character ever devised, and DRACULA - THE TRUE STORY comprehensively examines the question of where author Bram Stoker got his inspiration for such an extraordinary creation. The answer lies in Transylvania (also the birthplace of Bela Lugosi, who portrayed Dracula in the signature 1931 movie version). Vlad Tepes, a 15th century Transylvanian prince, became widely known as "Vlad the Impaler" for his grisly policy of impaling victims, sometimes by the thousands. The film also probes the relatively recent phenomenon of vampire-related tourism and the various medical theories relating to the ancient superstitions, including the genetic disease of prophyria. Interviews include a fascinating conversation with Princess Brianna Caradja, one of Vlad's descendants, and footage features Vlad's castle and locales cited in Stoker's novel as well as clips from the amazing NOSFERATU and other movies based upon the novel.
