As each generation discovers its own sexuality, it rediscovers.

He has haunted our dreams and our waking hours, a fiend with a single purpose... to disarm us, to seduce us, to take the life from us.

Excellent overview and array of essays. As with all essay books, some are better than others. The particularly fine contributions were by Madison, Skal, Dello Stritto and Vest; the Vertlieb chapter was witless and the Svhela not very good. I read on some message boards that some of the writers were disappointed because Madison actually did the job of an editor and fixed sloppy copy -- perhaps they should learn something about what it means to be a professional writer.

All-in-all, a terrific introduction to anyone who wants to learn more about Dracula, and the impact he has had on the pop culture landscape.

Bob Madison has brought to the public a fine piece of literature, and just an all out fun book!

A good collection of essays absolutely ruined by inept 'editor' Bob Madison; his intrusive 'contributions' are neither objective nor factually or historically accurate and his childish, underhanded, dishonest 'editing' (in which essays by other writers are subjected to removal of entire passages to be replaced with Madison's own, directly contradictory, opinions...all under the original author's byline, with no disclosure to the reader--or the writer-- that he had done so).

Academically useless due to Madison's childish, petulantly subjective and myopic opinions substituted for objective fact and the entire book is rife with an inexplicable, bizarre, childish bias against Christopher Lee; an agenda that immediately becomes as tiresome and distracting as it is obvious. Madison interrupts essays complimentary to Lee to arrogantly and condescendingly contradict writers at every opportunity, and Madison's dishonest authorship/editing noted above turned Steve Vertlieb's complimentary essay on UK Gothic horror films into a castrating hatchet job on Christopher Lee-- which, as noted, Madison credited wholly to Vertlieb.

Madison also fails--spectacularly--in his assertion that Dracula eventually "returned" to the brooding, sympathetic vampire" supposedly in vogue at the time of its publication...it wasn't, nor was Dracula ever portrayed in that fashion by Stoker. Truly "sympathetic" vampires didn't exist until Dark Shadows' Barnabas Collins in the late 60s (special mention to Dracula's Daughter if you like...), and the first sympathetic Dracula didn't appear until Dan Curtis reused his Dark Shadows storyline (itself lifted from 1932's The Mummy) for a TV production. So the 'true' iteration of a vampire is the one from daytime soaps? Good job, Bob.

Madison's agenda seems to be:

1. Christopher Lee is terrible and contributed nothing to the character of Dracula on screen or in popular culture (yes, really)
2. The 'correct' Dracula is a "brooding, doomed, sympathetic vampire" of the type "that were in vogue before Stoker's masterwork." NONE of that is accurate, either with Stoker's character or Madison's characterization of Victorian vampire literature- the vast majority of vamp lit featured unsympathetic, evil vampires (Coglin Grange, The Horla, The Vourdalak, The Mystery of the Campagna, Good Lady Ducayne, etc). Madison laughably attempts to justify the modern 'sympathetic vampire' trend by falsely claiming this is what it has always been- it hasn't. That trend comes from Dan Curtis and Anne Rice, not Bram Stoker, but Madison desperately seeks to justify his own preference with misrepresentation, obfuscation and straight-out inaccuracy.
3. Any of the actual writers whose work fills the majority of the volume who disagree with Madison's personal warped and biased view are simply wrong and will have their essays arrogantly intruded upon or outright changed to better reflect Madison's agenda.

Seek out the work of the various contributors (Mank, Vertlieb, Gordon, etc) in other places and ignore Bob Madison's agenda-driven, intellectually offensive drivel.
