Tuesday's Fright Film Tidbit

The original  title for Bram Stoker's novel “Dracula” was “The Un-Dead”. The novel’s main character, “Count Dracula,” was originally named “Count Wampyr.” Stoker had come across the name Dracula while researching the history of Transylvania and discovered the name Dracula meant “son of the devil.” This prompted Stoker to change the name of his novel and the name of the main character.
