Chapter Summary

Modern versions of vampire poetics can fruitfully be dated beginning from the Francis Ford Coppola lm Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992-1993), which provided the vampire lm tradition with a new impulse. The lm Dracula 2000 should be considered part of the same series, with the "2000" which appears in the title understood as an allusion to popular eschatology of the millennium. The plot is a typical enough construct, based on yet another one of Dracula's resurrections. For the sake of comparison, consider that the author of Mein Kampf apparently thought in a direction close to the one taken by Popov and the readers sympathetic to his views. According to the view of a modern Polish anthropologist, anti-Semitic or anti-Jewish "blood legends" are bound up "not with [the idea] that the Jews are vampires, but with [the suggestion] that they are wizards".

Keywords: "blood legends"; anti-Semitic; Dracula; Francis Ford Coppola; Jews; Mein Kampf; Popov; vampire poetics
