Another spoof from the mind of mel brooks. This time he's out to poke fun at the dracula myth. Basically, he took bram stoker's dracula, gave it a new cast and a new script and made a big joke out of it.

"...the humor is universally appealing...  Barbara Shulgasser, San Francisco Examiner
"A long overdue and very funny horror spoof from Mel Brooks.  Jim Ferguson, The Prevue Channel
"...has the manic giddiness and controlled hysteria of Brooks' best stuff.  Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Editor's Note
Mel Brooks aims his pun-gun at the Dracula legend--and, particularly, at Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 film BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA--in this undead spoof. In DRACULA: DEAD AND LOVING IT, Leslie Nielsen brings the deadpan humor of the NAKED GUN series to the role of the infamous vampire. Between its many sight gags and puns, the movie sticks fairly closely to the classic story line of previous screen versions, beginning with Renfield's (Peter MacNicol) visit to Count Dracula's creepy Transylvanian castle on legal business. The solicitor becomes Dracula's insect-munching slave and the two journey to London, where the count racks up more victims, most notably the busty Lucy Westenra (Lysette Anthony). When Dracula's archenemy, Dr. Van Helsing (Mel Brooks), attempts to end the vampire's reign of terror, oodles of mayhem and gallons of fake blood are let loose on Victorian London. As one would expect from Brooks and Nielsen, this particular Dracula--who is prone to falling down staircases and crashing into windows when he takes on bat form--becomes the butt of numerous jokes. The cinematic jokes are even better--many of them derived directly from Coppola's lush and innovative film techniques and the bad British accents that abound in his DRACULA film. Horror will never seem the same again.
