COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Writer (feature film)
Count Dracula, the Prince of Darkness, is dead and he''s loving it but he''s also in for some ego-puncturing problems and horrific surprises never encountered by Bela Lugosi or Gary Oldman. On Dracula''s bumpy quest for blood, the blundering bloodsucker exhibits a dazzling and hilarious array of supernatural magic, including flying, superhuman falls, hanging upside-down, clinging to the ceiling, long-distance hypnosis, shadows with a mind of their own, and morphing into an accident-prone bat. Meanwhile, the immortal count''s mortal enemy, Dr. Van Helsing, a brilliant professor of weird phenomena and world-famous vampire hunter, is busily masterminding the plan to expose and corner the bloodsucker who has infiltrated London''s high society.
Set in the 1860s, an aspiring young writer, Bram Stoker, is kidnapped by a cult of outlaw feminists dedicated to the destruction of men. They are ruled by an eccentric queen with an uncanny influence over rats.

In this silent film, a beautiful woman risks her life to end a vampire's plague of death and pestilence.
Misc. Crew (feature film)
When her tomb is opened, the ancient mummy of an Egyptian queen comes alive and travels through time to modern San Francisco in order to destroy her enemies.
Based on the Victorian horror novel written by Bram Stoker in 1897, about the vampire Dracula, who is on a quest to be eternally reunited with the one woman he ever loved. Dracula travels from Transylvania to London to find the young woman who is the double image of the love he lost centuries earlier.
A terrifying legend comes true after a discovery in an ancient ruin, and a female vampire is unleashed.
Archeologist Matthew Corbeck (Charlton Heston), obsessed with the legend of Egyptian princess Kara--who was forced into an incestuous affair with her father and later killed him--travels to the Middle East to uncover her tomb. Disregarding the curse associated with the legend, Corbeck pillages the burial site and brings the loot back to a London museum, unaware that his daughter was born at the very moment he broke the seal on Kara''s tomb. After a quick 18 years fly by, Corbeck''s daughter, Margaret (Stephanie Zimbalist), becomes possessed by the long-dormant spirit of Kara and the bodies start to pile up.
When a schooner is wrecked off Whitby the only survivor is Count Dracula who has arrived with large amounts of Transylvanian soil to take up residence in Carfax Abbey. He makes friends with Dr Seward who runs the local asylum and with his daughter Lucy, her friend Mina, and with Jonathan Harker, Lucy's solicitor fiance. But almost immediately, Mina dies from loss of blood, and just possibly this may not be a coincidence.
The vampire Count Dracula drinks the blood of virgins each night. His assistant Renfield is helping him with his seduction of Mina, who Dracula wants to turn into one of the undead, but they are hampered by Dr. Van Helsing who knows what they are trying to do.
Jonathan Harker is sent away to Count Dracula's castle to sell him a house in Virna, where he lives. But Count Dracula is a vampire, an undead ghoule living of men's blood. Inspired by a photograph of Lucy Harker, Jonathan's wife, Dracula moves to Virna, bringing with him death and plague... An unusually contemplative version of Dracula, in which the vampire bears the cross of not being able to get old and die.
A lavish, atmospheric new version of Bram Stoker's classic tale of horror with Jack Palance heading a stellar British cast as the bloodthirsty count.
An evil Egyptian princess'''' sprit possesses an Egyptologist''''s daughter.
