For The Love Of Dracula!

From Buzzsaw By Catherine Fisher

Vampire: a preternatural being, commonly believed to be a reanimated corpse, which is said to suck the blood of sleeping people at night.

Obsession: the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire and so on.

If we put these two together we can say teen America has fallen prey to the vampire obsession (the domination of these preternatural beings that suck blood) … again.

This sudden craze has left many people shell-shocked and overwhelmed, yet in actuality this should be no surprise. These undead, blood-sucking creatures have entranced the population for centuries. This time around, however, it is just in the form of glamorous movie stars whose faces are plastered over every gossip magazine in the country.

Does anyone remember Dracula by Bram Stoker? It could be known as the most famous vampire reference in history, containing details that have become Vampire Knowledge 101 (Transylvania, Van Helsing, Count Dracula, etc).
