Storyline

On Halloween night, Count Dracula summons all the classic horror monsters to demand that they either revamp themselves into the horrible, scary creatures they are supposed to be, or get out of his castle. Definite disco-culture influence here. Judd Hirsch looks like a Saturday Night Fever throwback. Fun for children! Written by Michael Jehn

One of the best movies bring back fond memories. I was 5 when it was re-released and it is fun to watch as a family. And although a little corny. I do believe that the whole family would enjoy watching it. It is short enough for little kids to stay interested. And it is funny for kids and teens. And brings back reminiscent times for adults. Plus you don't have to worry about what it is rated like most of the movies today. I have just recently seen it again and it is just as good as I remembered. And you will probably want to see it more then once. I know I sure did. Although now it is a bit hard to find. I would check pleases that sell used VHS. Also other places too. Since it was only once released to my knowledge.
