Yay! The only movie in sign language is a vampire flick!
20 November 2001 | by (Huntington, NY) – See all my reviews

DEAFULA is by far, the strangest adaptation of Bram Stoker's vampire novel ever! The entire film is in sign language. It rarely plays. When I saw the film at the Museum of Modern Art, the entire audience was dead silent. All I could think was the film-maker's intent. They felt, deaf people need to enjoy movies more, and what's more enjoyable than a vampire movie?
