Watch: Love at First Bite 1979 123movies, Full Movie Online – This vampire spoof has Count Dracula moving to New York to find his Bride, after being forced to move out of his Transylvanian castle. There with the aid of assistant Renfield, he stumbles through typical New York city life situations while pursuing Cindy Soundheim. But her boyfriend, Doctor Jeff Rosenberg, realizes she is under the influence of a vampire, and tries his bumbling best to convince police Lt Ferguson of what is going on, and to help him stop Dracula..
Plot: Dracula and Renefield relocate to 70’s era New York in search of Cindy Sondheim, the reincarnation of Dracula’s one true love, Mina Harker. “Trouble adjusting” is a wild understatement for the Count as he battles Cindy’s psychiatrist, Jeffrey Rosenberg, a descendant of Van Helsing, who may almost certainly, possibly, may be in love with Cindy too.

Great spoof, with some great lines.
A great comedic version of the story, with a tanned vampire Hamilton looking for his lost love to give her the bite. Several very funny moments, especially once Dracula and Renfield reach New York. Slightly dated with several 70’s era references, but still a very funny movie. Can’t get over the tan.
A film for those who remember the Disco Age
This is a wonderfully funny film thanks to clever and irreverent writing, wonderful acting and a clever “fish out of water” treatment of the Dracula story. In particular, Arte Johnson was a standout as the over-the-top freak, Renfield, Richard Benjamin’s equally over-the-top retooling of Von Helsing and George Hamilton finally found his film niche as the sexy but somehow hip vampire. When it comes to the writing, there are so many rapid-fire laughs that you can’t help but laugh. Sadly, though, a few of the jokes are now considered “politically incorrect”, so idiot do-gooders usually excise objectionable portions of the film–such as the bat wondering into the poor Hispanic tenement building, the African-American funeral and the gay bar scene. It’s a darn shame that nowadays some on the far left (who USED to preach Free Speech and fought against banning books) now are the same ones who do this “to spare feelings”. I would never want to deliberately offend anyone, but only the most joyless and thin-skinned will be strongly offended by this gentle spoof. I just don’t get it, but because of this nonsense, I strongly recommend you watch this on videotape, DVD or if it’s run on a pay channel like HBO or SHOWTIME. Clever, funny and captivating from hilarious start to hilarious finish.
