Deafenstein Not an Actual Movie

Posted on August 18, 2011 at 4:00 PM

How many people have tried searching for Deafenstein in Netflix or Blockbuster and end up getting frustrated because they don't have it? They don't have it because it doesn't exist. It was a made-up title by the good folks of "Switched at Birth" for their 9th episode where Emmett gives Daphne a very thoughtful gift involving Deafenstein, a movie "so bad" and whose "sequel is even worse".

According to Deaf News Today, Deafenstein was apparently a takeoff of an actual film Deafula ,a 1975 version of Dracula performed entirely in ASL.

Personally I think they did a spectacular job of making that uber-cheesy poster which is very reminiscent of many of the cheesy movies of the 60's and 70's.

Here is the original article
