concepts of possession and exorcism among the laity. The author applies some aspects of Bram Stoker's psychobiography to further understand his book, Dracula, one of the most horrifying books in English literature.

Henderson studies the vampire cult from the point of view of early object unions and splitting, depressive and persecutory states, good and bad internalized images. The persecuting forces are seen not as the supernatural forces of medieval times but as the internalized persecuting bad objects of the theories of Klein and Fairbairn.
