Editorial Reviews

At the mention of the word "vampire," images of bloody fangs, dark capes, and a man with a hideous, spooky laugh immediately come to mind.

These conventional images, born from countless vampire films over the years, are most commonly associated with Irish writer Bram Stoker and his iconic 1897 novel Dracula. However, despite the popularity and influence of this celebrated nineteenth-century tome, the vampire myth dates back more than 1,000 years, long before Stoker ever put pen to paper. In this fascinating journey through time, HISTORY uncovers the ancient folkloric origins of blood-craving creatures from beyond the grave. Learn how the vampire myth is strongly rooted in Eastern European lore, but how it has also played a prominent role in the ancient cultures of Greece and China.

From wooden stakes to garlic apotropes to ancient burial rituals, VAMPIRE SECRETS explores how this long-standing myth has been interpreted by different cultures around the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! November 18, 2007
By Sanchez
Format:DVD
What an awesome documentary! It's packed full of stories and really separates the myths from the facts. The interviews are very intriguing and the actors in the reenactments should get awards for their amazing portrayals! I would give the documentary 5 stars if only it had even more content. Yes, yes, it was a good hour and a half long, but I still was wanting more once it ended.

Oh, and one question: anyone know who the sexy mysterious silent vampire man was played by? Because I want to tell him that he can bite my neck anytime, hee hee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Halloween! September 27, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
How much fun can you have on Halloween? A LOT when you watch this documentary on the history of vampires, peoples beliefs in them, etc. As with all History Channel documentaries I always learn a lot, and would recommend this for anyone who is "not of the faint at heart".

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this February 16, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love these kind of programs, so I could be a little biased, but I enjoy the legends, the stories behind it and the research. The History channel presents things in and interesting and engaging way and this DVD is no exception. I ordered this for my library because I enjoyed the program and want a personal copy for a time when it is no longer aired. As a writer I often find things like this inspiring and there are times when I just want to sit down and watch something creepy that crawled up out of the real world to become surreal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so secretive February 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not bad, but waaaayyyyy too much time spent on the "modern vampires" at the end of the show. Psychic Vampires? Really? History did a better job with its' other special on Vlad the Impaler, some of which is included on this DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Vampire of Legend, History, Literature, and Film April 26, 2009
Format:DVD
"Vampire Secrets" is a timely documentary in light of two recent theatrical films based on the vampire -- "Twilight" and "Let the Right One In." It shows how history, nature, literature, cinema, and legend combined to produce the concept of the vampire, a creature of the undead who survives on the blood of human beings. The 1997 Bram Stoker novel "Dracula" is cited as a major influence in the popularity of the vampire character. The aristocratic Count Dracula requires a human slave to look after his coffin and protect him from exposure to daylight. He leaves his Transylvanian castle to journey to London, its dense population an ideal feeding ground. But the documentary goes further back, uncovering the ancient folkloric origins of blood-craving creatures from beyond the grave. The vampire myth is traced to Eastern Europe and back to the ancient cultures of Greece and China. Profusely illustrated with art and footage of actual locations, "Vampire Secrets" is a treat for anyone who ever shuddered watching a vampire flick.
