"In some ways, all you really need to know about this movie is that it's called Deafula, it's about a deaf vampire, it's performed entirely in sign language, and yes, it really exists."Deafula is a 1975 American horror movie. A loose adaption of Dracula, it's about a deaf theologist student vampire named Steve Adams. It is strange, to say the least.
This film contains examples of:
- "Blind Idiot" Translation: There is a dub track that translates the film's sign language into English overly literally.
- Chekhov's Gun: Peanuts. (Really.)
- Department of Redundancy Department: "It's good to see you again!" is repeated several times in one conversation. Indeed, it sometimes seems that half the movie is characters repeating their dialogue.
- Our Vampires Are Different
- Shout-Out: Switched at Birth references Deafenstein.
- The Speechless: This film's version of The Igor is a hunchback with no hands (or rather, with tin cans shoved over his hands.)
- Vomit Indiscretion Shot
