      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Lacking any of the comedic bite that audiences have come to expect from a Mel Brooks farce, this vampire parody just plain ol' sucks.

      Rami A This was ludicrously funny. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/27/23 Full Review Chris u Delightfully funny ! watch it constantly one of the greatest spoof movies ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/18/23 Full Review Jacob B One of the weakest films in Mel Brooks' career, this de facto grand finale to his directorial efforts is intermittently funny and the actors do seem to be having fun but Dracula: Dead and Loving It doesn't have the same passion nor is it as memorable as Brooks' other Halloween-appropriate spoof film Young Frankenstein. Nowhere near the disaster critics made this film out to be but I can understand why this ended up being the end of an era for this type of spoof film before transitioning to the pop culture reference-heavy [Genre] Movie in the 2000's following a test run with Spy Hard. And since Leslie Nielsen was in both this film and that one, I find it amusing as a sort-of book-ends for these types of big-screen parodies. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/18/23 Full Review Chris M Mel Brooks tackles the many adaptations of the Dracula movies. From the Bela Lugosi to the Francis Ford Coppola version. For years before this movie came out I was dying to see his take on the movies, considering his take on the Frankenstein movies is a classic. And I was not disappointed. Leslie Nielsen is on the top of his game. You can see Easter eggs from other classic versions, including the Hammer Dracula. Peter MacNicol is a scene stealer. He had the perfect imitation of Dwight Frye's evil snicker from the 1931 movie. A perfect spoof for lovers of spoof and Dracula movies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/11/23 Full Review C n I read the book. The movie is closer to the book than other Dracula movies. Maybe it's my Hungarian roots, but I loved seeing parts of the book on the screen. Yeah, it wasn't a laugh a minute but read the book first and you'll appreciate the film more. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Melinda B There's so much blood! Another Mel Brooks laugh riot! If you don't like this you just don't like Mel Brooks!

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader Either this is the lamest Mel Brooks comedy ever or it's too close to other contenders to make much difference. Oct 20, 2009 Full Review Joe Leydon Variety 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. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Time Out Brooks, as Van Helsing, is one of the more successful aspects, but he hasn't imbued in his stock company a similar ability to rise above their underwritten roles. Jan 26, 2006 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot Leslie Nielsen plays it too straight in Mel Brooks' alleged comedy... Rated: 1/4 Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed A very above par and often funny satire of a horror classic. Oct 16, 2013 Full Review TV Guide A few effective gags emerge from this hectic concoction of unfunny pratfalls, juvenile mugging and tedious enema jokes. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 20, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews
