A humorous film putting a Brit Twist on the Dracula Legend.
13 July 2002 | by (Vancouver, Washington USA) – See all my reviews

Though it has been several years since I saw this film, I recall enough to wish I could find it on video..or better DVD.

I happen to like David Niven and found this film rather enjoyable. I would expect that one would need to be able to grasp some of the subtle humor that a good number of Britcoms are known for to really enjoy some of the more funny bits.
