From the friendly Count on Sesame Street to Murnau’s ghoulish Nosferatu, we seem to love our vampires! Need a fix of good-spirited horror? There are plenty of options right at the Eisenhower Library.

We have a lot of good reads! How about a juicy novel by Anne Rice? Or, a collection of other horror tales and ghost stories? We have many of the works of Bram Stoker, the original Dracula mastermind. Or, maybe you’re a history geek who wants to get right to the source: Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia – aka, Vlad the Impaler – the 15th-century inspiration for Stoker’s novel. How about general books about vampires, werewolves, or other “ghouls and ogres?” MSEL has them!

Let’s not forget our great collection of flicks: Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Interview with the Vampire, Science is Fiction: 23 films by Jean Painlevé, Thirst, and Dreyer’s Vampyr. And there’s my personal favorite: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Browse the whole list!

One thought on “Movies & Books to Sink your Teeth into!

  1. Vampires have always captured our imaginations in books and films for centuries now. I’ve read all four books of the Twilight Saga and have enjoyed all of them. Nice twist on vampires, imagine the Cullen family actually being “vegetarians”!
