Vampiress Review: "Dreaming Dracula"

The Gist: A girl attempting to learn the story of Dracula falls asleep and dreams she is in the story.

Clarification: Basically it's just the Dracula story but in German. 

Selling Point: see below

Female Vampire Factor: Since it is the Dracula story you get your Lucy seducing Quincy and fanging out for the first time scene.
Then your Lucy rises from the dead and gets staked scene.
But the real selling point of this film is the use of Dracula's brides because on top of your standard scenes of them attacking Jonathon Harker but being stopped by Dracula and your end scene of them being destroyed.... 
They actually do get some individual screen time. One haunts Harker during his carriage ride to the castle as he's writing to Mina.
One repeatedly seduces Harker and bites him to prevent him from escaping the castle.
and one runs seductive interference allowing Dracula to get to Lucy by detracting and biting the men guarding her.
For that the film gets a Vampire Beauty Rating of 4 out of 5.  More brides is never a bad thing in my opinion.  This is one Mina fang out scene from a 5.
