- May I have a brandy, please?

- Certainly, sir.

Traveling far?

Not much farther, I hope.

Is it possible to have a meal?

Yes, sir.


Only a simple one, I'm afraid, sir.

- Your change, sir.

- Thank you.

We don't get many travelers in these parts.

Not that stop, anyway.

You had one a few days ago, I believe.

A Mr. Harker.

- Harker, sir?

- Yes.

He's a friend of mine.

- He wrote to me from this address.

- Not here, sir.

I remember the gentleman.

He gave me a letter to post.

Hold your tongue, girl!

Was this the letter?

- I'm not sure.

- Perhaps you remember the name.

Dr. Van Helsing.

I'm not sure.

Go and prepare a meal for

this gentleman. At once. Do you hear me?

What are you afraid of?

- I don't understand you.

- Why all these garlic flowers?

And over the window?

And up here?

They're not for decoration, are they?

- I don't know what you're talking about.

- I think you do.

And that you know something

about my friend.

He came here to help you.

We haven't asked for any help.

You need it all the same.

Look, sir.

You're a stranger here in Klausenberg.

Some things are best left alone...

...such as interfering in things

which are beyond our powers.

Please, don't misunderstand me.

This is more than a superstition, I know.

The danger is very real.

If the investigation that Mr. Harker and I

are engaged upon is successful...

...not only you,

but the whole world will benefit.

Castle Dracula is somewhere here

in Klausenberg.

Will you tell me how I get there?

You ordered a meal, sir.

As an innkeeper it is my duty to serve you.

When you have eaten,

I ask you to go and leave us in peace.

Your meal will be ready in a minute

if you'd like to take a seat.
