'Do you not know that tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway?'

When solicitor Jonathan Harker arrives in Transylvania to organise the estate of a mysterious client, his growing uneasiness quickly turns into terror. Count Dracula has something more monstrous in mind and Jonathan finds himself trapped, a prisoner in a castle of horrors. Soon after, a darkness sweeps across the seas to England: Lucy Westenra begins to suffer from night-time wanderings, followed by a set of unexplained bitemarks, and a series of disturbing deaths captures the attention of vampire hunter, Van Helsing.

A nineteenth-century Gothic triumph that explores the deep-seated anxieties and fears of Victorian society, Bram Stoker's Dracula remains as chilling today as it was at its time of publication.
