The Vampire Princess

The Vampire Princess

Picture a spectacular vampire attack at the tomb of an Austrian princess. A scene from Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series? No. It's the deleted opening to Bram Stoker's "Dracula," a horror classic that many experts believe was actually based on a woman. Archaeologists, historians, and forensic scientists revisit the days of vampire hysteria in the eighteenth century Czech Republic and re-open the unholy grave of dark princess Eleonore von Schwarzenberg. They uncover her story, once buried and long forgotten, now raised from the dead.

Picture a vampire attack at the tomb of an Austrian princess. It's not a scene from the "Twilight" series - it's the deleted opening scene from Bram Stoker's "Dracula," a scene in which the iconic "Dracula" may well have been a "she."
