(1918); a German version Alraune (1918) [Alraune und der Golem
(1919)]; A Daughter of Destiny
(1928) starring Brigitte Helm
; a sound remake of the 1928 film Alraune
(1930)/"Daughter of Evil" also starring Brigitte Helm
; and Unnatural (1952) [Mandragore
(1952)] with Hildegard Knef
and Erich von Stroheim
. It told the story of a woman birthed from the seed of a hanged murderer who, through being born artificially, had no soul and became a seducer, using and luring men to their doom . . . Embryo
(1976) . . . rehashes the story of Alraune without any credit". See more
