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

Awesome little show
16 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this show as a little kid. My brother and I still do the little thing we call 'Tinie, Tiny bat, tinie, tiny bat.' It makes us laugh every time. This is a great movie for kids. They don't make them like this anymore.......

I would highly recommend this to every kid I know and adults. It has some really cute humor. Judd Hirsch is awesome..

Where can I go to buy this movie Amazon?

I did try one year to find it and they wanted around 90 bucks for it. I'm not sure I would pay that much - but I would at least pay $30.00

Does anyone have any good ideas?
