Description: Jonathan Harker arrives at Castle Dracula in Transylvania giving a lease for an English abbey to Dracula, who plans a trip to England. Dracula's bloodthirsty brides stalk Jonathan, but after Dracula's angry intervention, he is imprisoned while the Count goes to England in search of his long lost love. Mina Murray, Jonathan's fiancée, is in England with her friend Lucy. They encounter the bizarre Renfield--an escapee from an asylum who warns of Dracula's coming. In the meantime, Lucy and Arthur meet and fall in love, and after he leaves, she is murdered by Dracula. Dr. Seward, Arthur, and Dr. Van Helsing later encounter Lucy—now a vampire. Arthur grimly drives a stake through his love's heart. Two weeks later, Count Dracula is the guest of honor at the Whitby grand ball, and is introduced to Drs. Seward and Van Helsing, and then to Mina—with whom he is immediately enraptured. Dracula's trance causes her to end her engagement with Jonathan. Later, revenge is taken upon the Count and the mortally wounded creature bids a sad farewell to Mina, lifts his curse on her, and dies.
