Anne Rice once said, “To write something you have to risk making a fool of yourself.”
Read my works because you want to read scary stories or stories about vampires navigating eternity and so much more. Consider supporting me.
The Monster Lives
Truth is subjective, especially on silver screens. Everyone is an actor with a role to play, a story to tell. Sitting in the theater chair yet another movie about the monstrous Dracula had been released, funny how my story has been told for decades and yet each adaptation is less truthful than the last. Honestly, the most faithful would have been the one released in 1992. The actor that portrayed me, I had to do a double-take and make sure I had not accidentally exposed myself on screen. But the story was ever still in more favor of the heroes rather than the villains. Surely, they cannot keep portraying Mina Harker as a damsel in distress – she was anything but that. She wanted to flee Jonathan for me, and yet the times would not allow it. Then there was Lucy Westenra, the film had it show that I appeared as a dog to her? No, farthest thing from the truth.
