Storyline

English law firm junior Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to sell London real estate to count Dracula, unsuspecting he's obliged to stay in his castle as 'language tutor' for a month. In a Budapest convent, sister Agatha questions him later how he escaped alive and what he learned about the master vampire, who locks his victims in coffins to die. Jonathan realizes only now how even his love for fiancee Mina was exploited and tainted, but she's there too, hoping to redeem him from his worrisome state. But Dracula has tracked them down and found a way to be invited in so he can unleash his bloodthirsty wrath and wolves. Written by KGF Vissers

a good introduction
15 January 2020 | by ayamisrSee all my reviews

If anybody who lived under a rock and never heard of the story of count Dracule before and watched this episode, it would be a good introduction. to me it was a new way to look at an old and beloved story
