I read that this community is dead, but I figured it may be worth a shot to post a comment and see what arises. I'm very intrigured by the media portrayal and the history of vampires. I was watching a documentary where these people were asking directions to Dracula's castle and one of the people spoke of Vlad as a hero to his people. I never really thought about it like that. It was a different perspective to me that to the people he defended by being a monster he was a hero. Anyone care to comment?
