Tuesday's Fright Film Tidbit - Drakula Halála - 1921

There is some debate among film historians as to whether or not Dracula’s Death (1921) or Drakula halála was the first Dracula film as some believe. According to some sources, this Hungarian film, written and directed by Károly Lajthay, depicts a woman’s experiences after visiting an insane asylum where one of the inmates claims to be Count Dracula. She is then plagued by visions of the count and is unable to determine if the visions are real are simply nightmares. The film is lost, however some of its stills exist.
