Transylvania: a small, peaceful country in the heart of medieval Europe.
In this country there is an old legend concerning Dracula. Once every 100 years, the power of Christ grows weak. Each time this happens, human beings with evil hearts begin to chant unspeakable prayers. Thus is Dracula, the Prince of Darkness, resurrected upon the face of the earth. And each time he is manifested, his powers grow stronger. Once, long ago, Dracula was revived in this manner. However, his ambitions to plunge the world into darkness and build a kingdom of evil were crushed by the hero Christopher Belmont.
Following Dracula 's demise at the hands of Christopher Belmont, the Transylvanian countryside slept peacefully for 100 years. Then, one Easter night, the townspeople were commemorating Christ 's resurrection with a splendid carnival. But in the ruins of the old monastery on the edge of town, the followers of darkness were holding a Black Mass to revive the evil Count and give him eternal life. They poured a sacrifice of human blood over his remains. As they did so, an evil thundercloud enveloped the town. Suddenly, a single bolt of lightning pierced the monastery. In that instant, Dracula, the Prince of Darkness, returned to this world to begin a new reign of terror.
But all was not lost. The successor to the Belmont family bloodline, a young man by the name of Simon, was determined to rid the land of this terrible evil. Taking the mysterious whip left to him by his father, he ventured into Dracula's castle to face the Count - alone.
