Dracula: Dead and Loving It [DVD] [1995]

Mel Brooks' vampire spoof Dracula: Dead and Loving It makes its debut on DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. During the commentary track (recorded by Brooks, co-screenwriters Rudy de Luca and Steve Haberman, and lead actors Steven Weber and Amy Yasbeck) many comments are made about the various films they intentionally stole concepts and shots from, making the widescreen frame all the more valuable. All five of them also discuss how much fun they had making the movie. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround Stereo. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. This is a decent release of one of Brooks' lesser films.

    Synopsis


    Dracula: Dead and Loving It
    Mel Brooks does it again with this send-up of vampire films. That Leslie Nielson plays the great blood-sucking count gives viewers a good idea as to what they are in for. This Dracula takes himself very seriously despite the fact that he's a bit of a klutz with a tendency to slip in the bat guano that adorns his castle floor. Staying very close to Bram Stoker's original story, Brooks also pays sly homage to other major vampire film classics, including Nosferatu. Though silly but subtle gags abound in this outing, Brooks has taken great care to recreate the late 19th-century atmosphere in rich detail and harkens back to Hammer horror movies popular during the '50s and '60s. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

      I think Dracula Dead and Loving It is a hysterical film from the comedic genius Mel Brooks. I love that Leslie Nelson is the infamous Count. This film is by far my favorite Brooks film. If you like Mel Brooks of if you just like to laugh you should watch this movie, you'll be quoting it for days!!!

      I bought this movie because I remember watching it when I was younger. For some reason it doesn't hold up as well as Mel Brooks' other classic comedies. Still and enjoyable movie.

      I Like Leslie Nielsen, But Not This Movie

      I loved Leslie Nielsen in the 'Naked Gun' movies, but 'Dracula: Dead and Loving It,' just doesn't cut it. A relatively good cast for this low budget production, and at least the dvd is widescreen.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Typical Leslie Nelson. Very funny and worth watching. A couple of scenes not fit for children. So keep it for mature audiences only.
