On arrival, Harker realises that that he has been the victim of a misprint, but he is so charmed by his welcome that he fails to realise that he has become something of a prisoner. Harker's plight is made more acute by the attentions of the Brides of Dracula, a voracious trio, who appear to have less than honourable intentions. With the improbable assistance of Dracula's servant, Igoretta, Harker escapes and returns to England, where, shortly afterwards, his fiancé finds herself in the company of a mysterious foreign gentleman. Little does she realise what is at stake...
