Another spoof from the mind of Mel Brooks. This time he's out to poke fun at the Dracula myth. Basically, he took "Bram Stoker's Dracula," gave it a new cast and a new script and made a big joke out of it. The usual, rich English are attacked by Dracula and Dr. Van Helsing is brought in to save the day. Written by

When Mel Brooks asks "Do you have 'Nosferatu'?" and Harvey Korman says "Yes! We have 'Nosferatu.' We have 'Nosferatu' today." It is a reference to the Louis Prima song "Yes, we have no bananas." See more »

After the end credits have rolled, you can hear Dracula get the very last "last" word in -- "Chervania!". See more »
This comedy followed the Bram Stoker book very closely. It merely turned the whole tale into a hilarious romp, making fun of Dracula and his inept sidekick, Renfield, as well as the other characters. A lot of slapstick gags in this film, some I saw coming from a mile off, but I still got a kick out of them. I especially liked the scene where Van Helsing and Harker staked the vampire in the tomb - what a riot. Neilson was great as the troubled bloodsucker.
