Phenomena in artwork: A vampire

Classic vampires in the film. A vampire can be called the Countess Margaret, who supports life and youth, removing them from young and beautiful girls with the help of the invention of Professor Du Grand using for this purpose the blood of the victims. This effect is not persistent and quickly pass, if the Countess is experiencing stress or strong emotions.

With the vital forces of the Countess of victims of the Professor are transmitted to their habits, manner of speech and behaviors (e.g., taking the life force from Lefty-laurette, Countess begins to write with his left hand).

Phenomena in artwork: Zombies

The only zombie shown in the film is Joseph, strangled by assistant Professor Du Grand and lively late by the Professor in the laboratory during the experiments, aimed at finding ways to prolong life.

Joseph after waking up from death doesn't behave like the classic zombies: he is sober mind, his will is not suppressed, the memory is not lost. He was in shock and was very weak.
