This chilling tale, to be performed in unique radio-play style, follows the unworldly Count Dracula as he feeds off others to preserve his eternal life. As he slips quietly into Victorian London, the city seems powerless against his frightful power; and only one man—the smart and resourceful Dr. Van Helsing—can stop the carnage.
