Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If any movie proves that Mel Brooks' genius for skewering creaky genres has evaporated, it's this anemic attempt to draw new blood from low-flying vampire high jinks.
Rotten: The only real sparks are set off by MacNicol as Renfield, the solicitor who develops a taste for flies and spiders after being bitten by Dracula.
Rotten: Not to venture forth some sort of radical idea, but aren't comedies supposed to have jokes?
Rotten: This time, unfortunately, he's sucking on a dry vein.
MEL BROOKS IS A GENIUS!!!
Mel Brooks is the funniest person alive. While this movie isn't one of his funniest, it is still very funny and I strongly recomend it.
AH!! "I was having...a daymare"
Classic Mel Brooks. I liked this movie, not loved it, liked it. The movie is a spoof of the 1933 and 1990's version of Dracula and is very witty and funny. It's hard to find on DVD, so I recommend buying it here. If you like most of Mel Brook's work, you should buy it. I wouldn't try to compare it to Blazing Saddles because it is ten times better then this. However, if you liked the Dracula movies and want a little humor from the films, it's a good purchase. I think Itunes should put Young Frankenstein on because I believe that is Mel's best work.
Mel Brooks + Leslie Nielson= THE FUNNIEST PARODY MOVIE ON EARTH!
This movie is one of my favorite comedies. Leslie Nielson (The Naked Gun, Spy Hard) is known as one of the greatest spoof actors of all time. Mel Brooks (Spaceballs, High Anxiety) is known as one of the greatest spoof filmmakers of all time. It's the ultimate combination! Anyone who loves to laugh must watch this movie.
