Storyline

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 Jason Ihle <jrihl@conncoll.edu>

"Dracula: Dead and Loving It" is a masterful spoof, though the intricacies would never be recognized by someone unfamiliar with Bram Stoker's novel. The attention to detail, and Brooksian destruction of it is superb.
