Summary

There is something wrong about the Spanish residencia on the hill. Some disregard it as only a house with a mad woman with her two children. Others claim that unspeakable things happen at night, when the house is in the shadows. When a wounded war hero takes refuge in this forbidding home, he slowly realizes that degenerate people tend to fraternize with degenerate spirits.

Probably not long enough for a credit, but...

"She seemed the link that bound me in with dead things on the one hand, and with our pure and pitying God on the other: a thing brutal and divine, and akin at once to the innocence and to the unbridled forces of the earth."
- Robert Louis Stevenson, Olalla

Those Victorians sure loved their Gothic vampire stories. This one was published in 1885 (Dracula was published in 1897). It shares a couple similarities: castle in the mountains, love, blood, lust, crosses. My prior exposure to this story was very limited, but I enjoyed it. Stevenson tied it all down and put it to bed tightly. It isn't my favorite genre, but I do enjoy Stevenson's craft.
