By far, one of my favorite Dracula adaptations ever. Vampire movies tend to bore me, but this one keeps things fresh and hilarious. Brooks is a genius, and this is easily as funny as Young Frankenstein. The comedy ranges from slapstick to parody and is complete with plenty of witty puns. Nielson, Nichols, and the entire cast all provide excellent performances, each with their own quirks and unique physical humor. More surprising than anything else are the elaborate sets and ridiculous amount of blood throughout the flick, both of which call back to the classic Universal and Hammer films. The plot takes many liberties with the original story, which is refreshing after so many other adaptions, but still follows closely enough to the source material to make it pertinent. I may be partial to the film since I grew up on it (having missed Young Frankenstein by over a decade), but I am a big fan of the film and recommend it to any Dracula or Horror / Comedy fan!
