1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.

I heard Dracula stopped going out to fancy restaurants. He couldn't handle the stake.

Can a creature that's just following its Instincts be called a monster. If you have a pet pig, are you a monster for thinking about bacon when your hungry. An old argument sure, but I don't think anything that is following instincts can be a monster.
Your a monster by choice, that's why I would say those two priests are monsters cause they choose to murder people in their misguided faith. Frenchy too is more of a monster cause he obviously has NO worries when it comes to killing and enslaving people in fact he seems to enjoy it. The only thing that makes him likable is that he seems to enjoy being as horrible a monster as can be, and being up front about.
Terms like 'monster' and the moral judgement that are things made by human minds and are subject to interpretation and individual points of view. To me, Bernadette is Bernadette, an amalgam of ideas and her own experiences; greater than the sum of her parts. What you or I think is unimportant. What is important is what she thinks, her point of view. And from her point of view, she is a monster.
