Plot Summary

After a harrowing ride through the Carpathian mountains in eastern Europe, Renfield enters castle Dracula to finalize the transferral of Carfax Abbey in London to Count Dracula, who is in actuality a vampire. Renfield is drugged by the eerily hypnotic count, and turned into one of his thralls, protecting him during his sea voyage to London. After sucking the blood and turning the young Lucy Weston into a vampire, Dracula turns his attention to her friend Mina Seward, daughter of Dr. Seward who then calls in a specialist, Dr. Van Helsing, to diagnose the sudden deterioration of Mina's health. Van Helsing, realizing that Dracula is indeed a vampire, tries to prepare Mina's fiance, John Harker, and Dr. Seward for what is to come and the measures that will have to be taken to prevent Mina from becoming one of the undead.

Trivia When Bela Lugosi died in 1956, he was buried wearing one of his many black silk capes, but not the one he wore in Dracula. That one was put on auction by his son, Bela Lugosi Jr. in 2011. The starting bid being set at $1,200,000, it failed to sell and so the cape is believed to still be in his son's possession. There is also a persisting, yet untrue, rumor that it was Lugosi's dying wish when, in fact, it was decided by his son and his mother, Lugosi's ex-wife, Lillian Arch. See more »
