About The Kiss of the Vampire movie: Originally intended to be the third movie in Dracula series (which began with the classic British Dracula with Christopher Lee) and was followed by The Brides of Dracula; it was another attempt by Hammer Film Production to make a Dracula sequel. In the United States, the film was retitled Horror of Dracula to avoid confusion with the 1931 film Dracula starring Romanian born Bela Lugosi. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kiss_of_the_Vampire

About Dracula: The vampires caricatured for films, best-selling novels, cereal boxes and even "Sesame Street" all descended from Vlad III Draculea, a Romanian prince who reigned in the 15th century. The prince earned the nickname "Vlad the Impaler" for the merciless ruler's gruesome method of doing away with enemies. His given surname, Anglicized as "Dracula," is derived from the word meaning either "dragon" or "demon" in his native tongue. Irish writer Bram Stoker drew inspiration from Vlad the Impaler for his novel "Dracula," published in 1897.

About Transylvania Live-Expert in Transylvania: Founded in 1995 the touroperator, specialized in very innovative Dracula themed tours in Transylvania, is one of the few that understands the Western market for Dracula. For many Romanians Dracula means Vlad Tepes but for people from the UK, America etc. it means of course the vampire Dracula. Here’s how Professor Duncan Light from Liverpool Hope University, specialized in Dark Tourism describes them: I agree with those people who say that Dracula is a way to get foreign tourists into Romania creating an opportunity to show them all the other things the country can offer.

Transylvania Live’s Dracula Tours were placed by the prestigious Fodor’s Travel Guide in Top Ten Must-Do Adventures. Important worldwide media organizations, such as Travel Channel, took an interest in the special events from their tours.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
