Both women react differently to Dracula’s taint.
“Call me Bella.” A tome about the length of the original series investigates Bella’s monomanical search for the vampire who stole her virginity. There’s an entire chapter devoted to describing the devastating whiteness of Edward’s skin, and several on the physiognomy of vampires, starting with their skeletal structure outward.
I think I’d like to read that book!
Mystery Science Theater veteran Miles O’Keeffe played Dracula in the film Waxwork. Dashing but evil to the core, he waylays a travelling English girl, disposes of her fiance, and treats her to a fate worse than death.
The movie is pretty silly overall, but dear god he made a handsome Dracula! Their portrayal of the Marquis de Sade is similar- totally historically inaccurate, but wickedly seductive. Someone on staff must have liked their aristocratic villains!
