Tabloid reporters Jack Harrison and Gil Turner are sent to Transylvania with two choices: find the Frankenstein monster or find new jobs. But before the jumpy journalists can dig up their big story, they must first face the horrors of an extremely clumsy butler, a nymphomaniac vampiress and a semi-mad doctor, as well as assorted mummies, werewolves and more Transylvanian oddballs. Can these two bumbling heroes unravel this monstrous mystery or are they in for some very scary surprises? Written by

Within a minute of starting his audition, Richards won them over by crashing around and slipping on the floor. The producers tried to talk the director out of casting him as too "crass". See more »
The plane shown taking off in the opening credits is not the same type of plane shown flying in the air, and the plane shown landing is yet a third type. This could be a goof, but in the 1980s it likely would have been a connecting flight. See more »
This movie just cracks me up! It's the first time I saw Michael Richards (Kramer on Seinfeld)--he plays one of the goofiest characters. You have to watch this movie with the idea that it is a goofy movie. If you go into it thinking it's serious, you are sadly mistaken and will miss out on a lot of good humor!!!
The team of Ed Begley, Jr and Jeff Goldlum as the two main characters was a great match. They contrast and complement each other well. With Jeff's sarcasm and Ed's seriousness you are bound to laugh at something one of these two guys say. Other characters that make this movie hilarious are Jeffery Jones as Mayor Lepescu and the hilarious "lower than low" couple, Lupi and Radu, played by Carol Kane and John Byner. Check it out. If you enjoy slapstick comedy, "meditating", and "Dracula", then you will get a kick out of this movie.
