Quotes

Assistant detective Butterfield: Don't forget, England has the best detectives in the world.
Detective: I know.
Assistant detective Butterfield: I remember there, many deaths with puncture marks on their necks. I remember my first encounter with Dracula. Dracula. I followed and I searched everywhere. When I found him, I hammered a stake in his heart, and he died. Dracula is dead! As I said before, England has the best detectives in the world.

Deaf Dracula
7 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Disorienting take on Dracula, its entire story told through sign language, giving the film a uniquely weird touch, making its lead seem even more alien, and bizarre, even with his sillier than normal appearance (why the silly looking moustache, and painted on eyebrows?)

This film also benefits from putting the Count in the foreign surrounding of a major, metropolitan area, rather than his Transylvanian abode, and in the (then) present day.

The problem, however, lies in putting Drac into a setting which has aged so poorly, (the mid 1970s) and such a weird twist as having Dracula signing his way through the story of the search for a killer.

Still worth watching, if you know what you are getting into, but I wonder if sticking to a more traditional Dracula plot, in American Sign Language might have worked more successfully?
