Synopsis: When a ship is wrecked off Whitby, the only survivor, Count Dracula, is discovered lying on the beach by the sickly young Mina Van Helsing, who is visiting her dear friend Lucy Seward. Lucy, her fiancé Jonathan Harker (a solicitor), and her father Dr. Jack Seward (who runs the local asylum) try to make the Count feel welcome to England. The Count quickly takes the life of Mina, and proceeds to romance Lucy, with the intention of making her his greatest bride. Soon after the death of Mina, the Sewards call her father Dr. Abraham Van Helsing to come to their home. As Lucy falls deeper under the spell of the Count, Dr. Van Helsing almost immediately comes to understand that his daughter fell prey to a vampire and discovers the culprit to be none other than the Count himself. Dr. Van Helsing, Dr. Seward, and Harker work together to foil the Count's plans to take Lucy away to his native Transylvania.

Young Mina found him

on the beach last night,

and we took him to Carfax.

As for the rest

of the crew--


[ Flies Buzzing ]

[Jonathan ]

What happened?

We don't know.

Maybe the ship's log

will tell us.

[ Man ]

All right,

swing 'em across, Harry.

Excuse me.

Is all this cargo

the count's?

There's more down below,

but the rest broke up

on them rocks.

Filled up

with some kind of dirt.

Dirt? What for?

Whichever it is,

I'll take it.

You can't do that, Renfield.

The count's not here

to sign for them.

They stay here

'til he comes around himself!.

I'm sorry, but the rights

of the ship owner

are already sacrificed...

since the tiller of this vessel

is held in a dead hand.

Where's the rest

of Dracula's baggage? I'd

like to inspect that as well.

- Come this way.

- Harker, you sold me house

right out from under me,

and you sold that poor count

a right bill of goods

with your fancy silver tongue.

I've half a mind

to tell Dracula

he been took good.

I wonder if I could impose

upon you to ask the count

when he rises...

if he would

join us for dinner

at Billerbeck Hall.

- What, at the looney bin?

- At my home, Mr. Renfield.


I'll give him the message, but I

don't think he'll be in the mood

for any fancy socializin'.

[ Man ]

Go back. Go back

a little bit more.

[ Snorts ]

[ Man ]

Good morning, ma'am.

[ Moos ]


Thank God you're here!

We've had the most--

There, there! That's

enough of that. Save that

'til after you're married.

I can't tell you

how dreadful it's been.

Slow down, Lucy.

Slow down. I had to come

to meet your new neighbor.

It was terrifying. Mina found

him washed up on the beach.

It's a miracle he's not dead.

You look lovely.

I look dreadful. I haven't

been to bed all night.
