#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Another spoof from the mind of Mel Brooks. This time he’s out to poke fun at the Dracula myth. Basically, he took “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” gave it a new cast and a new script and made a big joke out of it. The usual, rich English are attacked by Dracula and Dr. Van Helsing is brought in to save the day.
Plot: When a lawyer shows up at the vampire’s doorstep, he falls prey to his charms and joins him in his search for fresh blood. Enter Professor Van Helsing, who may be the only one able to vanquish the Count.

Brooks at his best
The one key element to UNDERSTAND and to enjoy a send-up like this is having the knowledge of its background. If you are not familiar with the original story of Dracula, as well as seeing both the Bela Lugosi and Gary Oldman movies, with others in between, then the gags will be lost on you.
People have rated that Brooks is losing his touch. Not so. His audience is losing touch with his level of intellect. A send-up’s gags are only funny to those who recognize the source, and realize the play of the situation taking place. In Spaceballs, for instance, the final conflict between Helmet and Lonestarr, Helmet makes a play on the “Luke I am your Father” scene from Empire Strikes Back. But if you have never seen that film, you won’t know that, and so the line “I am your father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate” would be lost on you totally.
The acting is great in the movie. Those attacking the “bad” British accents should refer to other Dracula films to understand the joke. In oother Dracula films, accents come off as so fake, it’s painful to watch, and that’s the joke. The style of the film itself takes heavily from the Bela Lugosi version, in its design and arrangement of characters, though references to the Oldman film are used as well. Leslie Neilson did a great job in the role of Dracula, and his Renfield, Peter MacNichol, was a superb performance.
This movie deserves full credit for its level of parodistic comedy, even if it is lost on viewers. If you can’t stand this movie, or find it unentertaining, then maybe you don’t understand its roots well enough to appreciate it.
“Dear God! What ARE you doing to the furniture?!”
I remember being an 11 year old boy in stitches with laughter when I first viewed this film on new release VCR (yeah, video – old school)!
Having just watched this film again recently I have to say that it’s still just as funny as it was as a child. The film of course is a parody on the ‘Dracula” mythos and the jokes and gags are much better understood if you’ve watched films such as “Bram Stoker’s: Dracula” which I can’t watch seriously anymore cos’ I constantly think of this film in certain scenes and start laughing!
The cast is brilliant in their roles especially Leslie Neilsen as “Dracula” and his brain-washed slave “Renfield” (Peter MacNicol) portraying an insane, insect eating madman extraordinarily well!
The humour is all in the typical Mel Brooks ‘tongue-in-cheek’ style and also quite reminiscent of Monty Python in parts, the over-the-top British accents may attribute to that part.
The final film directed by Mel Brooks, “Dracula Dead and Loving It” is very entertaining and the mindless humour make for a very enjoyable spoof movie!
Highly recommended : )
