Johnny (George Retelas, who both co-wrote and co-directed this movie) has a harrowing run-in with legendary ferocious vampire Dracula (an impressively vicious Konstantine Anthony, who sports a gnarly pair of black sunglasses) while out walking one fateful night. This short manages in a very efficient and straightforward manner to milk a good deal of tension and effectively spooky nocturnal atmosphere from the simple, yet compelling premise. The use of such natural sounds as owls hooting and crickets chirping adds substantially to the eerie atmosphere. The shuddery and syncopated score does the spine-tingling trick. Jeff Croghan's crisp cinematography is likewise up to par; the shot of Dracula flying down a hallway is especially striking and impressive. Moreover, the whole thing builds to an extremely funny and unexpected surprise comic punchline. An enjoyable little romp.
