Storyline

English law firm junior Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to sell London real estate to count Dracula, unsuspecting he's obliged to stay in his castle as 'language tutor' for a month. In a Budapest convent, sister Agatha questions him later how he escaped alive and what he learned about the master vampire, who locks his victims in coffins to die. Jonathan realizes only now how even his love for fiancee Mina was exploited and tainted, but she's there too, hoping to redeem him from his worrisome state. But Dracula has tracked them down and found a way to be invited in so he can unleash his bloodthirsty wrath and wolves. Written by KGF Vissers

Count Dracula
11 January 2020 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In 1897, the English lawyer Jonathan Harker is interviewed by Sister Agatha under the supervision of another nun in a convent in Bulgaria. He tells his journey to Transylvania to meet his client Count Dracula and how Dracula rejuvenates while he decays. He also recalls how the fled from his castle. Soon the convent is attacked by the evil Dracula and the forces of evil.

"The Rules of the Beast" is an episode base on the novel by Bram Stoker with a great beginning. However the humor does not work and the episode is too long from the moment Dracula arrives at the convent. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "The Rules of the Beast"
