            Through looking at the impassioned transformation from human to vampire of the protagonist Louis in the film Interview with the Vampire, we gain insight into the character of Bram Stoker's Count Dracula. We obtain a slight empathy for this dreadful creature as well as seeing into his immense evil and harsh weakness. Unlike Louis, Dracula does not feel bad about the things he does. He feels no pity, no pain and no regret. This is a window into the immense evil of his being. Louis fights his ordained fate by not allowing himself to follow other vampire's examples; he does not want to suck the blood of human beings. He puts up a courageous battle with himself, that can never be won, and here we see Dracula's weakness. The Count was not strong enough to fight the strong evil and instead succumbed to the life of the undead. Louis's pain and suffering, however, also show just how terrible the struggle must have been. This leads to some consideration for the life Dracula is forced to lead simply because he has a weak will. .
             Louis finds himself having to face a life full of torment. He cannot go out during the day and he is forced to drink blood, as well as everything else that goes along with being a vampire. He rejects this life fully and battles with trying to live his life as a semi-normal human being while fighting with the part of him that is not human at all. Instead of killing humans and drinking their blood for his survival, Louis instead decides to live off the blood of rats. The character of Dracula is therefore seen as more volatile and malicious, through comparing him to the central character of Louis. Dracula is a warrior and enjoys the wicked role he is playing in the world. He torments and kills innocent humans without thinking twice. He has no remorse for the things he does and to have no remorse is to have no heart at all. .
             [ ]There, indeed, was a woman with disheveled hair, holding her hands over her heart as one distressed with running she threw herself forward, and shouted in a voice laden with menace:- "Monster, give me my child!" She threw herself on her knees, and raising up her hands, cried the same words in tones which wrung my heart.
