So, I, like many others read Dracula at school (I lie, I read it at University), and even those that didn’t read the story, know the narrative to some extent. But to clear up any blurred lines, here is a quick recap.
Right, Dracula is the classic novel by Bram Stoker, the chronicle is made up of diary entries by Johnathan and Mina Harker with spouts of prose.
The tale begins with a journal entry by Johnathan on his travels to Transylvania; where he is to complete a real-estate transaction with a Count by the name of Dracula, ergo; Count Dracula.
Do we see where the story is going so far?
When our British solicitor arrives in Transylvania the locals in a near by town warn Johnathan that the Count is an ungodly and dangerous man. But, of course our hero doesn’t pay any mind to the ramblings of the poor. You can guess as much that Dracula is not all that he seems and things get very weird.
That’s My Cue Productions have come to tell this very dark tale, and I for one am very excited. Okay, it might not sound like the warm and fuzzy stories we’re used to in modern vampirism tales but this is THE ultimate dark literature classic. A truly captivating story.
If you’re a fan of any supernatural stories or god forbid, Twilight. And, if you are a fan of Twilight I have a message for you: Cut it out right now. Either way, all these stories lead back to Stoker’s definitive tale.
There have been many less adequate representations of Dracula over the years, but don’t worry this will not, I repeat, will not, be a recount of Francis Ford Coppola’s film starring Keanu Reeves and Wynonna Ryder.
Will this be the resurrection of the demon himself? Find out tonight.
