Description In the mountains of Transylvania there is a castle. It is the home of Count Dracula - a dark, lonely place, and at night the wolves howl around the walls. It is 1875 and Jonathan Harker comes from England to do business with the Count. But Jonathan does not feel comfortable at Castle Dracula. Strange things happen at night, and very soon, he begins to feel afraid. And he is right to be afraid, because Count Dracula is one of the Un-Dead - a vampire who drinks the blood of living people.
