The world's most famous vampire has been undead for over a century. The famous novel Dracula, written by Irish author Bram Stoker, was a mixture of reality, superstition, fearful fantasies and history.Stoker's role model for the novel was an actual Romanian Prince born in the 15th century: Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler, so named because of his favorite method of executing his enemies - the horrific medieval torture known as impaling. And so Vlad the Impaler and the Transylvania vampire Count Dracula, became forevermore, one and the same.The image of the vampire has been seen in novels, films, plays, paintings, and even a new musical, Dance of Vampires, directed by Roman Polanski. This documentary travels to the heart of Transylvania, in today's Romania, to uncover the historical truths behind the legend of Dracula. Today, vampire tourism in Romania is booming.

Would anyone here want to be a vampire and live forever . . . . . ?

We do live forever Linda but we have different experiences based upon what the soul demands to learn, hence the seemingly finite human experience. i think of it like how a dog reacts to an odd noise, it tilts its' head trying to work it out out of sheer curiosity. this is how I see the soul and the various incarnations it chooses to experience on it's eternal permananet quest to report back to source.

As for the good PR ha yeah! They are being softened to make them more paletable, much like they have done with ET's for decades now. Next we'll be having zombies who you want to take to bed.......

I knew somebody would say that 777 but what I really meant was, would anyone take the option to become a beautiful vampire when (seemingly) the only negative would be to have cadaver breath . . . . ? :)

As for the zombies taking us to bed - it would be awful that that part dropped off at a strategic moment wouldn't it . . . . ? lol
