Today, November 8th, is Bram Stoker’s 165th birthday. Since Dracula, Stoker’s classic Gothic novel, was published in 1987, vampires have evolved on the page and on the screen. Vampire lore has changed time and again and the creatures have been presented in every possible way: terrifying, appealing, deadly, mesmerizing, campy, and even sparkly. The huge success of the recent Twilight films, the last of which is set to release in theaters next week, proves that vampires are just as popular now as they were when Dracula first appeared in print.
