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

Excellent Halloween Fun for the Whole Family!!!
20 September 2002 | by (Oklahoma, USA) – See all my reviews

"King of the Monsters" Count Dracula, along with his hunch-backed sidekick Igor, and a group of the world's most famous monsters (including Frankenstein's Monster, The Werewolf, The Mummy and a Zombie) must convince a good-hearted Witch, who is really getting tired of all the "mean old witch" stereotypes and has refused to take her annual flight over the moon to bring in the new Halloween, that she absolutely has to take her midnight flight or else Halloween will cease to be ... FOREVER!!!
