Vampire Secrets. Part 2 . About Dracula

"Decoding the past". After the first part, the documentary continues with a presentation of what were considered to be causes of returning from the death and vampirism.
Also references to Elizabeth Bathory, worst female serial killer in history (at the end the XVI-th century she made few hundred victims in Transylvania)

The presentation reserves space for Dracula, who was made famous by Bram Stoker's novel from 1897, originally named "The Undead". After a presentation of how Stoker's novel was written, based on Bram Stoker's researches on Eastern European folklore, the focus shifts on to the real Vlad Dracula, Vlad III, his reasons for being so cruel and the impalement, as a slow and painful death.
