Let’s be honest with ourselves here: Dracula is not the most powerful of vampires. What can he DO, really? He can scale walls and turn into bats. Big deal. He’s strong, sure, but he has to be carried over water like a baby, and he brings boxes of dirt with him everywhere so he can sleep.
Look, I’m not saying I could have killed Dracula faster or more efficiently; I’m just saying that when Harker & Co. finally take him out—when he turns to dust à la Tom Holland—it’s both satisfying and infuriatingly overdue. The first time I read the book, I think I said, and I quote, “FINALLY.”
