The story and images behind the research and writing of DRACUL, by international best-selling authors Dacre Stoker and J.D. Barker. This multimedia presentation contains Bram Stoker's own notes, insight into the 101 missing pages from the DRACULA manuscript, the recently discovered "sister edition" of DRACULA in Iceland and Sweden, and Stoker family tales that function as a backdrop for the fictional plot.

When DRACULA, a compilation of the Harker Papers and other related accounts, was first published in 1897, the first 101 pages of the novel were excised from the text, believed to be too frightening, too dark, for the masses. Bram Stoker never meant for his words to disappear, only sleep, waiting until it was time. More than 100 years would pass before they would rise again, drawing breath between these pages. A story only he could tell, a warning of sorts.
