Did You Know?


Filmed in StereoVision 3D: The movie was shot in 35mm using Chris Condon StereoVision lenses. These lenses utilize a 3-D filming technique called "over and under." During filming, a normal 35mm film frame is exposed by two lenses (one for each eye view) instead of one. The entrance elements of each lens are side-by-side. After prismatic re-orientation, the exit elements are oriented such that the top half of the film frame is exposed by one lens and the bottom half of the frame by the other lens. Hence, the name "over and under." See more »

A Howler
2 April 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Perfect camp. Phil Fondacaro is the best little Dracula I've ever seen; the script never takes itself seriously and even the musical score is perfect cheese. If you live outside the United States, you won't "get" this film at all- if you're American, you'll chuckle with understanding from front to back. The writer, director and composer knew exactly what they were doing here. It's too bad they only had a couple of bucks to do it with, but if you put that aside, this flick is a howler.
