The eponymous villain Dracula exemplifies and personifies the fears of society during the 1800's including the spread of the plague, and milieu of the 1800's. Throughout the horror novel we can see Dracula as an alluring, mysterious figure that embodies the paradigms of science, religion and patriarchal values as he changes from a man to a monster through the narration of various personalities, most informatively, Jonathan Harker, Van Helsing and Mina Harker.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula It’s very clear to me that Dracula meets the criteria for ‘gothic horror.’ I could give examples of that using all six elements of gothic horror but I’ll use Supernatural, Main Character/Madness, and Evil because I felt they were most important. Supernatural involving otherworldly characters that defy natural laws, Main Character/Madness due to the risk of going mad from the extreme pressures of a threatening situation and evil since there is an atmosphere of fear and dread that evil will prevail over good. The movie starts out in the 15th Century where Dracula a member of the Order of the Dragon is victorious over a battle with the Turks, though many of his men died during battle he prevailed uttering “God be praised! I am victorious!” When Dracula returns from battle his wife, Elizabetta has thought him dead, so she throws herself off her balcony and committing suicide is a horrible sin in Christian faith. It is there that Dracula in a burst of anger stabs the cross, and renounces God and everything pure.
