Diary Of A Vampire

The way this DVD opened I expected it to be really cheesy, but I was pleasantly surprised.  This film is filled with lots of great scenes and photos, mostly focusing on Bram Stoker and the novel he spent 8 years gathering information for: Dracula.  Although Mr. Stoker wasn't the one who invented the idea of vampires, he's definitely the author who is synonymous with the name Dracula.  Because of his book, written over 100 years ago, people today are as hooked on vampires as they were a century ago.  Whether you find them intruiging or frightening--or a little of both--without Bram Stoker vampire lore may have faded into oblivion.  Diary of a Vampire also gets into occult secrets hidden in the works of authors such as Alexandre Dumas, Edgar Allan Poe, and Jules Verne.  This film is a must-see for anyone interested in vampires and their history, as well as Bram Stoker and how the novel Dracula came to be born.
