I was eight when I first read Dracula. I can be specific about that because it was the year Frank Langella played the Count on the silver screen. My father, as an apology of sorts for a particularly nasty bout of drinking and coming home to throw furniture around, brought me to see it. In retrospect, he must have been feeling particularly guilty. We didn't do "father-son" stuff, and when we did, it was usually him trying to get me to throw a football around rather than stay in my room with my horror comics. Taking me to Dracula was almost sorta kinda like actually condoning my weird tastes.
