Help Bring Vampire Drag Queens to Life!

By: Brandon Voss

You've got less than two weeks to make Dragula a reality.

According to its Kickstarter page, "Dragula is a short film about a high school senior who overcomes his emotional dysfunction and self-esteem issues when he unwittingly becomes involved with a drag queen who has a mysterious past."

With the help of an openly gay friend, Charlie finds his voice through Bram Stoker's Dracula, a school assignment, and an unplanned visit to a drag club.

"Charlie’s story is basically my story and I believe a lot of other peoples’ story that have grown up in a small town and were not accepted,” says writer-director Frank Meli. Adds executive producer Adam Shankman, “It tells a story that everybody can relate to, weirdly, which is Who am I?" And did we mention the drag queen vampires?
