Status: Existence Unconfirmed

Dracula (1920) is an alleged Russian film adaptation of Dracula. The existence of this film has not been confirmed, as no production stills, footage, or significant information about the film seems to have survived. If the film did indeed exist, it would be the first film adaptation of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, Dracula.

Some sources cite Victor Tourjansky as the director of the film, but most official data doesn't mention the movie in his filmography. The "lost" status information about the film comes from The Vampire Book - The Encyclopedia Of The Undead by J. Gordon Melton.[1]

Considering the film was made in 1920, it might have been destroyed in the Russian Civil War. Russian news website Dimitrovgrad Panorama claims that the movie was found in Serbia, but due to no further developments that would confirm the credibility of the information, it seems likely to be a hoax.[2]

A short black-and-white movie surfaced, claiming to be the resurfaced 1920 film found in Serbia, but it is obvious from several elements that it is a recently-made film using several techniques to make it look old.[3] A poster was created alongside the short film.
