The setting is a home atop a sanatarium for the mentally disturbed on the English seacoast in 1922.
There is neither nudity nor profanity, just dark sensuality, the misogyny of a 100 years ago, monsters, broken people, broken hearts, heroes and heroines.
There have been many campy versions of Dracula . This is not one of them.
A Dark Visitor, nobility from the Balkans, has come to be treated for a wasting disease and depression..
Dr. Seward, a devout man, is an alienist and director of the asylum.
Seward has two wards who are tutored by an old friend, disgraced scholar Helsinger who was blacklisted because of a problem with drink and with his female students.
The Dark Visitor has spent much time in South America, where he learned the tango and caught a disease--some time ago.
The two daughters--one studious, the other a free spirit and would-be flapper--have a penchant for the new dance craze the tango.
The flapper is engaged to a solicitor, an older, loving man who dotes, on her, but who is not the best of dancers.
The charming Count has been trying to be normal, but has a difficult time forsaking the red sticky which sustains him. He has a penchant for a particularly nutritious form.
Brigid, the Irish cook and maid sees the darkness in him right off. She is not unfamiliar with those things most of us do not see.
Renfield, the trustee patient who is usually most docile, now has become so manic he has to be restrained.
And Hoskins, the Cockney butler and factotum, who serves as warden to the madhouse and Renfield's keeper.
