    Are you a fiend for spooky stories? If you said yes then Dracula might just be the book for you. Dracula, or should I say Count Dracula, is an elderly looking gentlemen who lives in a castle in Transylvania. He possesses an undead curse that he wants to usher to England in search of new blood. Dracula feeds on the blood of living humans and can also command them. A man by the name of Van Helsing plots an attack on Dracula to bring him down. If you would love to learn more about this nail biter, then continue reading. “Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!” In the story Dracula there is a clash of religion. Dracula is more of a satanic or evil character. He only creeps about at night. If he does come out during the day he is covered from head to toe. Light represents good. Dark represents evil.

The crucifix is used to ward off evil by the majority of religious people. A crucifix is a symbol of Christian religion and typically has Jesus crucified on it. Not all have the crucification on it. A lot of them are actually just a cross. It is believed that it can protect you…

    When people think of the infamous Wallachian ruler Vlad III Drăculea, they think of the famous literary monster of nightmares, Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula.

    First off, I thought it was interesting that Jonathan Harker couldn’t locate the exact location of Count Dracula’s castle on any of the maps that he viewed. This set the mood of the novel for me. I think the author, Bram Stoker, put in little hints of “horror” to set the tone for the rest of the novel. Being that I have not read nor seen Dracula, I thought the first chapter was very intriguing. Whenever the topic of Count Dracula came about it seemed as if everyone in the novel deemed him to…
