The Legend About Dracula at Trakai Fanfare Week

2010 / 08 / 10

At the end of 19th century London is terrified by mysterious and unexplainable deaths. Dutch professor Van Helsing is convinced this disaster is caused by a vampire – an undead creature which prolongs its existence by feeding on the blood of the living. The professor reveals who is the vampire, when he meets count Dracula. As Dracula cannot overcome Van Helsing, he flees away and hides from the professor. Unfortunately, the evil count infects young lady Mina, fiancee of the professor's friend. She follows Dracula to his ruined abbey. The only chance for professor Van Helsing to save Mina is to kill count Dracula in his coffin before the sun set.
