Dracula's Death (aka The Death of Drakula, aka Drakula halála) is a 1921 silent Hungarian horror film written and directed by Károly Lajthay and may have been one of the first films to feature the character of Dracula.[1] It stars Lene Myl as Mary Land, the protagonist, and Paul Askonas as Dracula.

Plot

The film details the story of a young woman named Mary who begins to have frightening visions after seeing an insane asylum inmate who claims to be Dracula. She has trouble determining whether the visions were real or merely nightmares. However, he later kidnaps Mary and brings her back to his castle for a satanic "wedding".

Availability

The film has been lost for many years, and very little aside from the cast and plot is known.[2] However, while only a few photos of the film itself have survived, there was also a novelization of the movie that detailed the film's plot.[3]

It's still on the wiki, just not used anywhere. I'll be cropping it to just the still and re-add it to the page.

There are 3 different pictures, if I am correct. Let's see if we can upload them in a gallery.

I doubt if this film was ever on YouTube at any point if it was claimed to be lost for so many years (if it was on YouTube, why hasn't there been news that the film was found) and Viacom probably wouldn't care for a obscure 1921 Hungarian silent horror film that they don't own.
