Brief Synopsis:
This is a fanedit of 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' (1992), re-imagined as a silent film. The inter-titles are adapted directly from Bram Stoker's novel, and the score is sourced from 'Dracula' (by Philip Glass and Performed by the Kronos Quartet) with an alternate version performed by Michael Reisman. The intention is to present a version of the film faithful to the source material released around the turn of the 20th century, in the style of Nosferatu (1922).

Brief Synopsis:
After viewing an initial cut of director Tod Browning's Dracula in late 1930, Universal Pictures president Carl Laemmle, Sr complained that the film gave him the "Heebie-jeebies" and ordered that it be re-edited. Several minutes of film were cut and a number of scenes were rearranged, resulting in numerous continuity errors and giving the third act a glacial pace. Although the missing footage remains lost, this edit restores the continuity established in the original shooting script (and Melford's simultaneously shot Spanish-language version of Dracula) eliminating most of the continuity errors and quickening the film's pace in the third act.

Two versions of my fanedit are available on the DVD. One using film elements taken solely from the release version of Browning's film (the "purist" edition), and a second incorporating additional cut scenes and alternate footage taken from the Spanish-language version of the film directed by George Melford and shot on Browning's sets at night.
