Count Dracula Society

Founded in 1962 by Dr. Donald A. Reed for the serious study of horror films and gothic literature. It is closely associated with the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, dedicated to honoring films and filmmakers in the several genres. The society hosts regular screenings of vampire and horror films and also sponsors an annual gathering at which the Ann Radcliffe Award is given.

The Count Dracula Quarterly (also known at various times as The Castle Dracula Quarterly and The Gothick Gateway, ) has been discontinued. Address: 334 W. 54th St. Los Angeles, CA 90037.
