It's funny how it ebbs and flows ... like the pulse of hot, living blood through a young virgin's veins.
There have been several pop culture "ups" ... when the first Dracula movie was made (the silent one - Nosferatu, maybe?) - that was huge, then about 15 years later when Bela Lugosi re-created the role, then about 40 years after that when Anne Rice's books started hitting the shelves, and now today.
The entire concept of Dracula is rich with ambiguity and symbolism ... especially of the highly sensual sort, so it makes sense that the idea will simply not die.
