short review:

The first ever produced feature-length movie done completely in sign-language is - a VAMPIRE movie! Luckily (for people who don't understand sign language), a soundtrack and dialogues were added later. Watching this film is a very unique experience, as all the actors communicate with their hands - the only real handicaped person is a hunchback servant with two tincans instead of his cut-off hands. There are a few vampiric inconsistencies: the vampire is the son of a preacher and has to recieve blood transfusions from him every month, he's following in his father's footsteps as he is becoming a preacher too, he even kisses a cross, and he shapeshifts into a vampire (in full costume & cape - and a huge nose!) in full daylight! But that shouldn't spoil your fun of watching such a rare and one-of-its-kind movie!
