In 1462, Vlad Dracula returns from a victory against the Turks to find his wife Elisabeta committed suicide after his enemies reported his death. Dracula desecrates the chapel and renounces God, declaring he will rise from the grave to avenge his wife. He then stabs the chapel’s stone cross with his sword and drinks the blood that pours from it. In 1897, solicitor Jonathan HARKer takes the Transylvanian Count Dracula as a client from his colleague Renfield who has gone insane. Jonathan travels to Transylvania to arrange Dracula’s real estate acquisitions in London. In London, Dracula emerges as a wolf-like creature amid a fierce thunderstorm and hypnotically seduces, then bites Lucy Westenra, with whom Mina is staying.
In his fury, Dracula transforms Lucy into a vampire. After Jonathan and Mina return to London, the others lead the others to Carfax Abbey, where they destroy the Count’s boxes of soil. The hunters depart for Varna to intercept him, but Dracula reads Mina’s mind and evades them. After Mina receives word from Jonathan — who has escaped from the castle and recovered at a convent — she travels to Romania to marry him. In the morning, Dracula’s carriage arrives at the castle, pursued by the hunters. A fight between the hunters and the gypsies ensues and Dracula is stabbed in the back during the fight. Jonathan slits his throat with a knife while the wounded Morris stabs him in the heart. Mina rushes to his defense and stabs his heart in the following following sunset following the fight and Dracula bursts from his coffin at sunset at sunset. Before Mina can seduce Dracula, she is approached by Dracula’s brides who feed on his blood and leave a wafer on her forehead, leaving a mark of fire to protect them from the brides, then decapitates them and decapitates the castle. The next day, Mina and Dracula travel to the Borgo Pass and the castle while the others try to stop the Gypsies transporting Dracula. At night, they are approached by the gypsy gypsied who chant and feed on Dracula’s blood.
