Dracula - a universally known horror icon. Ironically, only few have actually read the novel these days. Instead, the count's image is dominated by his numerous appearances in other media. Most notably movies which have taken on a life on their own, straying from the original more and more over time. Instead, these movies seem to be based on other movies. Or how would you explain that almost every vampire movie out there claims these undead creatures dissolve in daylight? A hint: this wasn't the case in either <i>Dracula</i> or the even older vampire story <i>Carmilla</i>. That 'tradition' was established by <i>Nosferatu</i>, an unofficial movie version of Dracula from the 1920s.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!
