6 Insanely Bizarre Literary Sequels You Never Knew Existed

Universal Pictures


There's a 'Dracula' sequel called 'Dracula the Un-dead'

If you’re thinking, “Man, I wonder what happened after the events of Dracula,” you’re not alone. At least one other person had this exact same thought, and that person was Bram Stoker’s great-grand-nephew, Dacre Stoker, so he wrote Dracula the Un-dead

Here are the highlights: it’s twenty-five years later, and everyone is either an alcoholic or a bad parent or both. Mina is in love with Dracula, and they have a son together. Dracula, as it turns out, is actually the good guy; the real bad guy is Elizabeth Bathory, who is a deranged lesbian vampire. Multiple people burst into flame, sometimes more than once. Did I mention Van Helsing is revealed to be Jack the Ripper? And Dracula’s son winds up on the Titanic? It’s really something.
