Dracula and Mina Love Never Dies

Updated on August 30, 2017

A Dark Tragic Romance Dracula and Mina

Love Never Dies

Vlad Dracul of the Order of the Dragon, destined to damnation, has already lost his true love , and now must roam the earth as blood thirsty vampire. Until one fateful day, destiny smiles at him, and returns the one thing he loved those countless years. His eternal love.

This gothic tale of love and tragedy is very unique, while dark, the passion and romance this film had to offer was quite impressive.

Let's go back to the 1400's.......

A place and time where there is no internet, no television, and music is only accessible through live performances and social gatherings. All you have is your family, and friends, your God, and your love.Are you there? A man and a woman, in love. This meant so much in those days. Your life and purpose is for that one person, they are your companion, your form on entertainment, your number one fan. You would live and die for this person.

One day, you are called to serve your King and God in battle. You reluctantly leave your love, in order to serve in a "holy battle". You leave her alone.

You may never see her again. Then fate may seem to smile upon you, and in your war efforts become victorious. This holy war is yours, you are the victor! All the doubts and fear leave from your mind, you can now return to your beloved, and share this sacred conquest next to her.

As you arrive, you realize that there is no victory feast to be held in your name. Not a single celebration of your triumphant return. Despite your efforts, you are led to a dark damp church, and find your wife, lifeless. They tell you, "She was deceived, they told her you died in battle, so she flung herself out of the castle tower, to her death." The only comfort you receive is a note in her cold hand, a declaration of love, and hopes of reuniting in heaven. At this the priest cry:

The holy men give Dracula no word of comfort. They press on. "She is doomed; she will not enter the gates of heaven. She took her own life! That is a mortal sin, therefore She has no chance at redemption." This is where our story begins, in heartbreaking tragedy. The count curses the church, and renounces God. He says that he will avenge his beloved's doom and damnation; he will rise from his very own death, in search of blood, along with all the powers of darkness. His love for her was so great, that he was willing to damn his own soul in the name of love

He joined his beloved, a fate of eternal damnation...........this is where the life of Vlad Dracul ends, and the story of Dracula the vampire begins.

Love conquers death.

Eternal Love

Back in Transylvania, Jonathan Harker escapes Dracula's castle. He manages to find a convent and seeks refuge there. He quickly sends for Mina, fearing for his and her life. He wishes to marry her as soon as possible. When Mina hears that Jonathan needs her by his side, she quickly responds.

In a letter, she explains to Dracula that she will never be able to see him again. In rage and anger, he curses his destiny. He will not lose his love again.

Mina and Jonathan, now married, return to London. They find that a plethora of unsettling events have happened during their absence. Mina's dear friend Lucy, who was very ill when Mina left, passed away very painfully. (In actuality, she became a vampire, and had to be staked and beheaded). As well as the introduction of Dr. Van Helsing. He claims that Lucy was killed by some sort of monster, and is determined to hunt this monster and kill him.

While on the hunt, with Van Helsing Jonathan leaves Mina in the asylum, so that she may not be in danger, while sleeping in her quarters, a green mist creeps in through her window. The Count, once again is there with her. He listens to her swoon, calling to him. While this is what the count wants to hear, he mutters under his breath, "you do not know what you are saying". She opens her eyes, and assures him that she knows exactly what she is saying. He confesses to her that he is the monster that is being hunted, he killed Lucy, he is the famed vampire. She weeps, but confesses she still loves him, and does not care. She pleads for him to make her like him. He then takes her in a fatal embrace, and begins to drink her life from her. He quickly stops, and says he cannot continue, he does not want her to be damned like him. He proclaims that he loves her too much to condemn her. But still she pleas, she wants eternal life, and to be taken away from so much death. At this, he surrenders, and gives himself to her, with fiery passion, she drinks of him. They now share the same, everlasting doom.

Van Helsing and Jonathan rush into the room to find Mina in an eerie embrace. They cast Dracula away, but he has already claimed his love. They are torn apart again. But this time, they are connected, she is his.

In the final scene, Mina now fully devout to her vampire, is a tool used by Van Helsing and the other hunters. Dracula is returning to his homeland, and they want to be there first to finish him. After a relentless battle, Dracula is struck, not being able to see him wounded Mina comes to his aid. Jonathan cannot hurt her, because he loves her still.. Mina drags her fallen count into the church. In her arms she weeps for him. He is now a disfigured looking man, but still she kisses him passionately. He then asks her, with the most sincerity to "give him peace"

      @SacredCynWear: Just a train ride....where do you live? I was living in Galati, Romania...and my train ride was about 5.5 hours to Brasov, then a bus ride up to Bran where the castle is. We partied there for Halloween a couple years with hundreds of people.

      I also went to his birthplace, and there is another Dracula place in the far north east of Romania...forget the name of the town right now, but it was interesting :) And thanks for info on I can sleep better :)

      Wonderful work, the passions of Dracula and Mina shine through it -- as does your passion for their story!

      @KathyMcGraw2: I agree. Although Dracula's death redeems them both. Mina has to be without him, and has to settle for Johnathan Harker. (He tends to get on my nerves in the movie).lol. It must have been amazing going to see Transylvania. A few years ago, me and my ex were planning on taking the Dracula tour. Which is a train ride, just like Jonathan's, through the Carpathian mountains, and a tour of Vlad Tepes Castle. I would love to hear your story!

      This was a great story. I have been to Transylvania and also the birthplace of Vlad Tepes (Dracula) and love the stories. This kept me captivated all the way through, although I was not happy the Count was killed, and wondered as to Mina's eternal damnation alone, without him. Who saves her?
