Deafula is a 1975 horror movie done completely in American Sign Language. A voice over is provided for those who do not understand sign language. The movie starred Peter Wechsberg, who also serves as director and writer, under the pseudonym Peter Wolf.
Steve Adams (Peter Wolf), a theology student, begins to suspect he may be a vampire after a series of blood-draining murders in his town. After his preacher father has a heart attack, Steve is told the mysterious circumstances surrounding his mother's death and finds out that she was seduced by Dracula while she was pregnant with him. Steve sets out to find Dracula's coffin to release himself from this curse, while two detectives attempt to catch this serial murderer.
This is the only film ever to be released in the Signscope format.
Over the years it has developed a following as a cult film due to the use of sign language and no spoken dialog.
