The Dragon Seed is a female driven sci-fi horror.
Blood lines run deep.
Kim Landers, an uptight college student, reluctantly takes the job being the nanny for precocious Alexzandra. She’s adorable, sweet and …could she be the secret child? Can Kim kill this little girl ….or will Alexzandra convince the nanny to join her quest.
Kim’s sword fight with Dracula will thrill audiences.
Is blood thicker than fear? What if Count Vlad Tepish (Dracula) had a child chosen to bring her father’s minions back to life? What if by uniting his decapitated head, he would return to power?”
In this female driven horror, Kim Landers, a college student, reluctantly takes the job being the nanny for precocious adopted 12 yr Alexzandra Gontif-- adorable, sweet and ….Kim doesn’t know what else but there is something elusive about the little girl. Her blinds are always drawn in her room and she hardly sleeps. She is a picky eater and always looks pale. Kim gets a weird chill every time the girl stares at her. The girl, meanwhile, has been able to wrap everyone around her finger, everyone including Kim’s boyfriend, Steve.
Her grandfather is, since Kim can recall, a Dracula fanatic and Kim is not surprised to see his name mentioned in association with the archeological dig that discovered the broken jar supposedly carrying the remains of Dracula’s daughter.
Back at the Gontif household, Kim can’t find Alexzandra one night. She searches the house frantically. Then through an open upstairs window, she sees Alexzandra clutching something n her arms. Kim runs downstairs and out the backyard just in time to se the girl throw what looks like a cat across the yard. The girl whips around to see Kim and there is a slight trail of blood from her mouth that Alexzandra wipes quickly away. The girl appears to be in some sort of trance and walks quickly into the house.
She goes to see grandfather again and again he talks about the curse of the child, the devil’s daughter, who will reunite hell.
Alexzandra’s parents finally succumb to their daughter’s constant whining and agree to return to Romania. Kim is asked to go with. Alexzandra’s real plans are to reunite with her descendants and to give the vampires the ultimate power of being able to hunt day and night.
Her grandfather dies but not before he gives Kim another clue that this indeed might be the child of the devil. Too late Kim realizes that Alexzandra’s plan is to reunite the recently exhumed body of Count Dracula buried on the monastic island of Snagov, outside Bucharest with it’s long lost head. The head, which had been in the possession of the Sultans of Turkey, now is with a Romanian vampire messenger.
The only way to stop Alexzandra is to drive a stake through her heart at the same time they drive the stake into the headless body of the Count.
Can Kim kill this little girl ….or will Alexzandra convince the nanny to join her quest.
