another boring comedy.
20 May 2015 | by (Barry's bay Ontario Canada) – See all my reviews

There so many good vampire movies from this time period. And this is not one of them. This a comedy about Dracula. Most comedies about Dracula are funny. And this is not one of them. If a Dracula movie is not going to be funny then it should be scary. It is not scary. The actors in this movie are pretty good. They just wasted there talent being in this awful movie. I find it pretty hard not to hate this movie. I can't believe people like this awful movie. The story line is awful. I like scary Dracula movie. I do not care for one that is a romantic comedy. The Satanic rites of Dracula and Dracula (1979) are so of the best vampire movies of all time. And this one is just a pile of stink pooh. Don't see it. Don't wast your time. And don't wast your money.
