The Lord of the undead is returning home to his castle in Transylvania following a two week package tour of terror in England. Hot on his tail is a group from England intent on destroying Dracula and saving the life (and soul) of Mina Harker. The group arrives at the castle at the same time as Dracula's entourage and just as the sun is setting.
Dracula bursts out of his coffin to do battle, but Jonathan Harker is the first person to react and manages to slash Dracula's throat before being punched across the courtyard. Next, Quincy Morris runs at Dracula and plunges his bowie knife in to the Count's chest. He also gets punched across the courtyard.
Despite having great regenerative powers, the Count is weakened and would be destroyed by the group if not for the intervention of Mina Harker, who keeps her friends at bay with a gun. Realising that this final confrontation is more spiritual than physical, the group let Mina and Dracula head in to the castle's church.
Mina and Dracula have an emotional exchange, where Mina's love for Dracula redeems him from his curse. Realising that God has forgiven him, Dracula asks Mina to kill him and "set this spirit free". Mina tearfully obliges and plunges the blade deep into the Dracula's chest with such force that it emerges from his back. Then Mina removes the blade and cuts off his head. Now that is what I call love....
I think this death is quite original as it is rare we feel pathos for the death of a baddy, hence I have scored it accordingly.
