On Walpurgisnacht, Renfield [Pablo lvarez Rubio] goes to Borgo Pass where he is met by Drcula's coach. The next day, Renfield and Drcula [Carlos Villaras] take 'the Vesta' to England. Ship arrives in Whitby harbor in a storm, captain lashed to boat, everyone dead, Renfield mad. Renfield is taken to Dr. Seward's [Jos Soriano Viosca] sanitarium near London. Dracula goes to a play where he is introduced to Dr. Seward, daughter Eva [Lupita Tovar], Luca Weston [Carmen Guerrero], and Juan Harker [Barry Norton]. Drcula announces he has taken Carfax Abbey which adjoins the Sanitarium. That evening, Luca dies of blood loss. In Switzerland, Professor Van Helsing [Eduardo Arozamena] analyses Renfield's blood, announces him a living vampire, and comes to England. In the meantime, Drcula has been feasting on Eva. Drcula visits the Seward home one day, and Van Helsing notes no reflection in mirror. While Van Helsing, Seward, and Harker discuss vampires, Drcula summons Eva outside. She is found, seemingly dead, on the lawn.

A lady in white is reported by children in park. Eva admits that she has seen Luca. Eva goes to bed wearing aconite (wolfbane) while Renfield talks to Van Helsing, Harker and Seward about Drcula. Drcula comes into the house, tells Van Helsing to return to his own country and that his blood now flows through Eva's veins. Harker rushes to Eva's room and finds her awake, dressed and on terrace. She is 'changed'. She attempts to bite him but Harker is saved by Van Helsing. Near dawn, Drcula comes to sleeping Eva and carries her off to the Abbey. Renfield escapes to abbey; Van Helsing and Harker follow. Drcula kills Renfield, and attempts to finish off Eva. Van Helsing and Harker find Drcula's coffin; Van Helsing stakes him. Eva is released from his hold. Drcula is dead. [Original synopsis by bj_kuehl]
