This slide lecture presentation explores the mysteries of the vampire in legend, fantasy, and fact. Many aspects of the undead are covered including the origin and history of vampire beliefs, ancient lore of blood and the restless dead, and the attraction of the vampire in literature, movies, and popular culture. The tremendous impact of the novel “Dracula” is examined, along with the historical figure of Vlad Dracula in Romania. Various explanations of the vampire legend are considered from a scientific perspective. The presentation also examines the real vampire bats of Latin America, and strange reports of unearthly figures, such as the vampire of Highgate Cemetery in England, and Dracula’s ghost in Romania. <– Click “All Events” under Central Library
