To Die For (also known as Dracula: The Love Story) is a 1989 horror-romance film directed by Deran Sarafian and stars Brendan Hughes as vampire Vlad Tepes, Duane Jones (in his final film role), Philip Granger, Julie Maddalena and Amanda Wyss.[1]


Vlad Tepes, the Prince of Darkness, resurfaces in Los Angeles with a new look, new life and new love. But with the new life comes an old nemesis who has waited an eternity to settle the score.



The film was given a limited release theatrically in the United States by Skouras Pictures in 1989.

The film was released on VHS by Academy Entertainment in the late 1980s. The film was released on DVD in the United States under the title Bram Stoker's To Die For by Triumph Marketing in 2005.[2] This version is currently out of print.


The film was followed by the sequel Son of Darkness: To Die For II in 1991.
