Alraune, die Henkerstochter, genannt die rote Hanne (Alraune, the Hangman's Daughter, Named Red Hanna) is a 1918 silent science fiction horror film directed by Eugen Illés and Joseph Klein and starring Max Auzinger.
Despite the title this film has very little connection to the novel by Hanns Heinz Ewers, with the only reference being to the Mandrake root which plays a role in saving the dying child. This film was released in the US under the title Sacrifice and in contrast to the Hungarian film by the same name an intact version can still be found at George Eastman House.
The film was produced by Luna-Film and distributed by Natural Film GmbH. The art direction was by Artur Günther
A Doctor uses the sperm of a dead man to impregnate a prostitute. The resultant child then grows up only to turn against the man who created her.
