After Sir Karell Borotin is found dead in his study, drained of his blood, the local doctor determines that he was killed by a vampire. The coroner and police Inspector Neumann dismiss the suggestion but a year later, Sir Karell's daughter is attacked and bite marks are found on her throat. Neumann calls in the eminent Professor Zelin who thinks the story of vampires is true.

I'm sorry gentleman and lady, but it will be best for you to stay here tonight.
Ronnie - Englishman at Inn:
Come now, my good man. You can't frighten us. We've been over your foul roads before.
Please, you do not understand. It is not the road. It is the darkness. Here, our doors are protected with bat thorns.

Tod Browning's return to the genre that made him famous brings along Bela Lugosi to reprise his role as a sinister Count. This vampiric tale is mixed in with a murder mystery. I found the end results to be very weird, unusual and entertaining. What I thought was going to be a routine horror story has a very funny twist. To give it away would be telling. If you're in the mood for something different then by all means watch.
