I Watched Dracula and Lived to Tell the Story

It finally happened, I watched Dracula. I had a close call the other night when I found Dracula on Netflix but ended up watching a different movie instead. I realize my story isn’t super but I’m trying to make it interesting.

Dracula on Netflix

Anyway, I was watching vampire movies while I raced the clock to finish a knitting project for my Christmas deadline. I’ve been kind of afraid of watching this classic tale because I worried I didn’t have the stomach for it. But I had just finished Vampires by Vincent Lannoo and thought it was pretty cool so I thought, it’s now or never. Let’s do this.

Here’s my Dracula story. Part two.

The pep talk I gave myself before pressing play included I’m tough and I’m not afraid of Dracula. Just so we’re all on the same page.

The movie. Was. Fascinating. I really enjoyed it.

First of all we have a star-packed lineup with Anthony Hopkins, Wynona Ryder, Keanu Reeves, and Gary Oldman (I watched the 1992 version).

And then the story!

No wonder people are obsessed with vampires. I see it.

Even though I had to watch the end with my hands over my eyes, I found the Dracula character completely fascinating. This movie really captured the lure of a vampire…there is passion, obsession, lust, seduction…it’s all very exciting.

I think I get it, but I still have a lot to think about.

At any rate, I’m sure many of you have seen this film and aren’t surprised that I enjoyed this film. Later in the day I was raving about the movie to my husband and he said, sounding confused, “You know I have Bram Stoker’s Dracula on our DVD shelf.”

What now? Hmm…a slight oversight. Perhaps discovering it on Netflix wasn’t such a big deal.

Anyway, I finished my knitting project right around the time the movie ended. Good timing, good films.

And I only had one nightmare.

Well, I've already told you of how I found Dracula on Netflix. It wasn't super. But now I'll tell you how I watched Dracula and lived to tell the story.
