The Curse of the Vampire is a novel written by Karl Alexander. It was first published in 1982.


Los Angeles actress Melanie Ross is in Transylvania to shoot a film. It is the ancient home of her Romanian ancestors and their tortured spirits stalk her every move.

On a tour through Vladimir Castle, an ancient evil is unleashed, and a hideous bloodlust invades Melanie’s innocent body. By day she continues her life as an actress on a foreign location shoot, but at dusk she undergoes horrifying transformations. She begins to kill in the shadows, shredding her victims’ bodies, sucking out their souls…and in her wake she leaves their gory remains.

It is the curse of the vampire, and her savage hunger will not be denied.
