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>

Trivia

When Mel Brooks and the rest of the filmmakers gathered together for the first time to discuss the making of the movie, one of the early questions was should the picture be made in black-and-white, mainly because Brooks' earlier film Young Frankenstein (1974) was made in black and white in order to give the movie the feeling of the old Universal Frankenstein films. This idea was dropped, mainly because, as Steve Haberman said in the audio commentary of the film in DVD, a lot of the great Dracula movies were in color, specifically the Hammer pictures starring Christopher Lee and Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula (1992).

not bad at all
12 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

It's impossible for Mel Brooks to make a completely bad film (well, then again, there was "Life Stinks".......) and "Dracula - Dead and Loving It", while hardly up there with "Young Frankenstein", has enough good yuks in it to make it well worth watching. Leslie Nielsen, whose work in the "Naked Gun" series I am not fond of, is actually excellent here in his portrayal of the Count, i.e., in his Lugosi impersonation. Anne Bancroft (Mrs. Mel Brooks) makes the most of her little cameo as the gypsy woman. Worth a see.
