House of Dracula

Meanwhile, a sincere Lawrence Talbot, AKA the Wolfman, arrives seeking a cure for his lycanthropy. When Dr. Edelman's first attempt fails, Talbot tries to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff, but instead finds a network of underground caves where Frankensteins Monster is in stasis. Chaos ensues as the three monsters fight for dominance of each other.

[Hiss]

What are you doing here?

Who are you?

I am Baron Latos.

I have come to you for help.

It's 5:
00 in the morning!

I must apologize

for the intrusion,

but travel for me

is very difficult and

I've come a long way.

I don't understand.

Perhaps you will

after you've led me...

to the basement room

of this castle.

It's a very strange request.

This is my home.

Have no fear, Doctor.

Had conditions permitted,

I would have presented

myself in the usual manner.

Well, it is most unusual.

I'll explain everything

before sunrise.

Dr. Edelmann, do you believe

in the immortality of the soul?

Naturally, being a religious man.

Of the body?

Medical science

refutes such a thing.

Just as it denies

the existence of vampirism.

[Edelmann]

It doesn't deny certain

physical aspects of it.

Cases have been recorded

in which the victims,

driven by some abnormal urge,

actually believe the blood

of other people was necessary

to keep them alive,

became psychopathic killers

in order to obtain it.

These beliefs probably

upset their metabolisms,

induced fixations,

lustful appetites.

The whole thing is of

a highly speculative nature,

particularly

the supernatural aspect.

Do you doubt

the supernatural?

I find it difficult to believe...

that a human being can

change himself into a bat,

or that by feeding upon

the blood of the living

he can obtain eternal life.

But what has this discussion

to do with us, Baron Latos.

Perhaps a great deal,

Doctor.

Shall we proceed?

[Edelmann]

The Dracula crest.

Yes, Doctor,

I am Count Dracula.

But I'm known to the outside

world as Baron Latos.

You see before you a man

who lived for centuries,

kept alive by the blood

of innocent people.

You ask me to believe that?

That's why

I've come to you;

to seek release from a curse

of misery and horror...

against which I am

powerless to fight alone.

According to the legend,

a vampire must return

to his grave before sunup.

If you remain here,

how would that be possible?

Within this coffin,

is a layer of soil taken

from my native country.

That earth makes this my grave...

in which I must lie helpless

during the daylight hours.

Because a single ray of sunlight

falling on the vampire...

would destroy him.

Yes, Doctor.

That door was locked.

How did you get that in?

Since you doubt the supernatural,

let us say you were mistaken.

The outer door was not locked.

You've taken a great deal

for granted, Baron,

proceeding on the assumption

that I would take your case.

Your reputation for helping others

made me certain that you would.

You could effect a cure?

There might be a way,

despite the dangers involved.

It would be a challenge

to medical science.

Accept that challenge, Doctor.

But decide quickly.

The dawn.

Good morning, Nina.

Good morning, Doctor.

Make a blood smear

of this will you, please.

A Baron Latos will

be in this evening.

I'll see him immediately.

Well, how are things coming?

Splendid, Doctor.

Increasing the humidity

was a good idea.

The spores are multiplying

faster than ever.

Yes, we're making

progress all right.

The operation on

Johannes'leg proves that.

If we can produce

the mold in quantity,

think what it will mean

to thousands of people

all over the world.

We'll succeed, Nina.

And when we do,

your devotion to this

experiment will be rewarded.

You'll be the first

to benefit by it.

Nina, make a culture of this

and prepare an antitoxin

as soon as possible.

All right, Doctor.

[Knocking]

I am Baron Latos.

Dr. Edelmann

is expecting me.

Baron Latos.

Miss Morelle,
