There with the aid of assistant Renfield, he stumbles through typical New York city life situations while pursuing Cindy Soundheim. But her boyfriend, Doctor Jeff Rosenberg, realizes she is under the influence of a vampire, and tries his bumbling best to convince police Lt Ferguson of what is going on, and to help him stop Dracula.

The theatrical movie was well known for its signature song played during the disco sequence, the disco classic "I Love the Nightlife" sung by Alicia Bridges
. Due to licensing issues, the song has been removed from most TV broadcasts and all DVD transfers, and replaced by a different song, a cover version of "The Man That I Love". The Bridges song is still listed in the closing credits, and is also heard on the original trailer (included on the DVD) which had it excerpted no less than three times. Fans of the song and the movie worldwide have been furious about its removal from the DVD release. See more

The Volga doesn't flow through or near Romania, so a Romanian count wouldn't be familiar with the flavor of its water. And the Volga empties into the Caspian Sea, an endorheic basin which isn't connected to the oceans, and doesn't experience tides. See more
