Dracula is determined to reunite with his lost love Mina from centuries past. Jonathon, her fiancé in modern times, is sent to Dracula's castle in place of Dracula's former accountant, Renfield, who has turned insane and who lives on a diet of insects. Jonathon, however, is captured by Dracula's wives. Lucy, Mina's best friend, is seduced by Dracula and joins the creatures of the night. Van Helsing is summoned by Mina's past suitors to try to thwart the all powerful Dracula.
Haunting music by the Hungarian composer Bela Bartok.
