The vampire: a creature that allures and terrifies in equal measure; a suave count from Transylvania, who sinks his fangs into the jugular of his unsuspecting victims. Dracula and vampires like him are the stuff of fiction…or are they? What if vampires were real? This film brings together medieval manuscripts, new archaeological finds and a shocking interview with a real-life vampire slayer to shed light on disturbing rituals from Europe’s past. This is a horror story far more frightening than any fiction.
