Could this be the scariest book to come out this October? (via Flavorwire) Dacre Stoker (with Ian Holt) picks up the nib and carries on with Bram Stoker’s original character:
With Dracula the Un-Dead, Dacre Stoker (Bram’s great-grandnephew) and Ian Holt revive the original vampire king, just in time for Halloween.
This authorized sequel picks up 25 years after the classic Dracula, and is based largely on Bram Stoker’s handwritten notes for characters and plot threads. Taking a new generation into account, it features Van Helsing’s morphine-obsessed protégé; Mina and Jonathan Harker’s lawyer-turned-actor son; and even the elder Stoker himself as a London theater director.
Flavorwire posts up the trailer, which I’m going to come right out and say isn’t all that scary. Fingers crossed the book delivers:
