Posible screen used Bram Stoker's Dracula Demon mask

So I matched this up with a few screen shots from the film. The thick foam latex is an indication of possible production use. The inside has a sturdy head frame, wires connected to servos in the ears, and a spring loaded hinged jaw.
Definitely not what you would find in your run of the mill replica mask.
Opinions?

awsome, construction looks a little over engineered for a "fan made" item

hopefully it is a production piece.

After more research it seems that unfortunately this wasn't from Dracula. It definitely was screen used, but from what film I dont know. I don't have $2500-$4000 for Tom Spina to restore the mask, and without knowing exactly what film it was used in makes it hard to invest in a multi-thousand dollar restoration.
Does anyone know of any body who can restore the mask that won't cost an arm, and a leg? I could justify $500-$800 because its really freaking cool.
I would love to see this mask restored to its former glory with a functioning RC control.
 
Update! While I don't have any form of authentication for it, I was able to test the servos in the face and I am 99% positive this is one of the screen used masks.
Your own research with the prop in hand is the best form of authentication there is.
 
If anyone in the central florida area has any knowledge about, recognizes this mask, or just wants wants to get a more detailed up close look at it, just message me. I am trying to find out all I can about it.
 
Hmmm, I'm not sure what his workload is or his price but Kevin Gorby might be interested. Especially if you can find out the film.

B.S. Dracula appears to be heavy on prosthetics to allow for the actual mouth of the actor to do most of the work.

Yeah its definitely not Dracula. I do wish I could figure out what it's from. Unfortunately I can't find anything that matches it.
 
Can you say a bit more about where you got it? Perhaps in can be traced back to a local creature shop or something.
I bought it as part of a private collection of special effects artist Tara Enslow, who owns Blood Moon Fx Lab in Orlando FL, that was found in a storage auction. That's all I know about it. Blood Moon Fx has only been around for 15 years or so, but they worked on The Kingdom, 2008's Day of the Dead, and a few others.
 
So after finally getting in touch with Ms Tara Renee Enslow it turns out this, and everything I bought had been stolen from her storage unit while she was out working on a film. I graciously offered to return everything back to her, but she only asked for two things back. A zombie mold, and a bag of badges she kept as memoirs of her work. She has allowed me to keep and use all of the other molds.
The mask according to Tara was used in the first Halloween Horror Nights at Universal.
