In the black of night he stalks his unwitting victims with the passion of a prince and the grace of a wild animal.
Able to assume the guise of everything from a shadow on the wall to a jagged-toothed wolf beast, he feed on the living.
Sinking his pearly fangs into their fair throats for a drink of their life-giving blood.
For he is the Prince of Darkness--Count Dracula--and he's cast his hypnotic spell on your lovely mistress, Mina Murray. Now you, Jonathan Harker, must drive a stake through the heart of this vampire and save the fair Mina from a fate worse than death--eternal life as a vampiress.
--From the Genesis Bram Stoker's Dracula instruction manual.
