Dracula's Death

Dracula's Death

Dracula's Death, or Drakula halála, sometimes translated as The Death of Dracula, was a 1921 Hungarian-Austrian silent horror film that was co-written and directed by Károly Lajthay, and starred Paul Askonas and Lena Myl. It was presumed to be a lost film but critic Troy Howarth states in his reference book "Tome of Terror" that a print exists in a Hungarian archive.

Plot

A woman experiences frightening visions after being admitted to an insane asylum, where one of the inmates claims to be Count Dracula (here following the Hungarian spelling Drakula). She has trouble determining whether the inmate's visions are real or merely nightmares. The inmate is a leering figure, thin and pale with a widow's peak, pointy ears and sharp teeth (as he appears in existing stills), apparently wearing a cape or cloak. (The poster actually shows a green-skinned monster with fangs and talons.) He appears to her in her dreams when she sleeps. Eventually she escapes the asylum and later gets married, but the dreams continue to haunt her.
