Abstract

Featuring a foreword by Dacre Stoker, sectional introductions by David J. Skal, Laura Helen Marks, Mitch Frye, and Dodd Alley, an afterword by Ian Holt, and a bibliographical essay by Robert Eighteen-Bisang and J. Gordon Melton, this comprehensive sourcebook on the world's most famous vampire documents over 700 domestic and international "Dracula" films, television programs, documentaries, adult features, animated works, and video games, as well as nearly a thousand comic books and stage adaptations. While they vary in length, significance, quality, genre, moral character, country, and format, each of the cited works adopts some form of Bram Stoker's original creation, and Dracula himself, or a recognizable vampiric semblance of Dracula, appears in each.

 

"Extremely useful." --Booklist/RBB

"Superb book...a magnificent piece of scholarship!" --Elizabeth Miller, editor of Bram Stoker's Notes for Dracula and Bram Stoker's Dracula: A Documentary Volume (Dictionary of Literary Biography)

"Dracula in Visual Media is a monumental achievement. This exhaustive compilation of Dracula-related works in film, video games, comics, and other media will be indispensable for all Dracula scholars and devoted fans of the Count." --Margaret L. Carter, editor of Dracula: The Vampire and the Critics, and author of The Vampire in Literature: A Critical Bibliography and Different Blood: The Vampire as Alien

From Rue Morgue Magazine:
"This in-depth, nicely illustrated catalogue of all known visual Draculinian works is an interesting read that will have you nostalgically digging out your Hammer box sets and Tomb of Dracula comics collection." -JAMES BURRELL

From the Foreword:
"Bram would surely be surprised at the great number of works, books, movies, television shows, comics, etc., apparently inspired by, or in some way connected to, the vampire figure he created."
-DACRE STOKER

From the Introduction:
"[This is] the most comprehensive compilation of Dracula film credits to date, and, like all such compilations, ample testimony to the vampire kings robust afterlife in the media, a feat so far unmatched by any other fictional character." -DAVID J. SKAL
