About the event
Dr. Seward has called Jonathan Harker and Abraham Van Helsing to come and help her daughter. Van Helsing is an expert on strange illnesses and forgotten lore. After an encounter with a bizarre sanatorium patient named Renfield - a man who eats flies and worms and mice to absorb their life essence - Van Helsing examines Lucy. He concludes that Lucy is being stalked by a vampire and may eventually transform into a vampire herself if he, Dr. Seward, and Harker cannot kill the creature of the night.
Shortly after Van Helsings examination, Dr. Seward is visited by his new neighbor - an astute, worldly, and impressive figure from Transylvania - Count Dracula. The group slowly comes to realize that Count Dracula is the vampire stalking their beloved Lucy and others throughout London. Van Helsing knows that 1.) a vampire must return to its grave by sunlight, 2.) any consecrated items such as holy water, communion wafers, and crucifixes are poison to a vampire, and 3.) vampires despise the smell of wolfsbane.
