Incredibly, they find a house, a castle in Transylvania which happens to be own by a count Vlad... Filini doesn't want to buy the castle without seeing it first, so the two of them travel to Transylvania, where they meet the count and his sister, who has a crush on Fracchia and decides to marry him!

Trivia

Gigi Reder plays the role of Fracchia's customer Renzo Filini, the same character he played in the movie series of Fantozzi. In the original TV sketches, the character of Renzo Filini was stated to be a minor colleague of Fracchia, while the role of event planner that Filini had in the Fantozzi movies was initially of same Ugo Fantozzi, before the latter character was spun off in an independent novel and movie series: after that the character of Filini had the same role with both Fracchia and Fantozzi. In the TV mini-series Giandomenico Fracchia - Sogni Proibiti di uno di noi (1975) the name of Filini was changed in Borioli, in order to separate this character from the one of Fantozzi (1975), debuting on screen in the same year and played in both cases by Gigi Reder. Reder played the role of Fracchia's mother in Fracchia la belva umana (1981). See more »

Nice,arise the vote
25 January 2008 | by robertofuianoSee all my reviews

Nice, really nice. It has an origin mostly comic but has good special effects. It was inevitable to see negative comments here, is the norm. Cmq a good movie, the environments are good actors suited to the type of film. He certainly part ironic, comic, the environments are very well linked to those of Transylvania and the result can be considered as satisfactory. It is a shame that here there are elements that bring more than 7 film ridiculous as the army of darkness and films such as Van Helsing a miserable 5. Shame! I disagree with the standards is happening here, I am not convinced. In some cases there are good reviews, in other see that there are some 'too many prejudices against certain films! 6.2 votes equal to fragile. And 'now clear that this site has a strong antipathy towards the horror film. If this movie had been in Stephen King would have had more. For me to go to pieces is the comment by Aaron1375. AARON STILL TU, quache distant relative of SHARON? Restless character already seen previously. Why make comparisons between SILENT HILL AND MIRRORS? E '100 times better this movie. Silent hill comes from a video. Do you have anything like the original film plot. There are mediocre film recited by actors who have high ratings as we are beautiful film recited by people less known. This site is so. In this movie there is a coup scene that leaves us with mouth open the others kind of Nicole Kidman. But since this movie and played by Sutherland takes one vote less. that's disgusting. Arise THE VOTE!
