Dracula Just Needs Somebody To Love

A still from the 1931 movie Dracula starring Bela Lugosi. You can see Dracula's "brides" below on Jack White's bass drum.

I remember being so captivated by Dracula (the man/vampire) when I saw the movie for the first time. I couldn't have been more than 7 or 8 years old. I clearly recall telling my Mom that I really liked Dracula and felt sorry for him because he seemed so lonely. Like he just needed some good friends or something. I definitely didn't understand the drinking blood aspect to the story, or the immortality. I think it's time for me to rewatch this movie.
