Editorial Reviews

About the Actor

The role of Van Helsing is played by Bruce Glover, perhaps best remembered for his nutty assasin character in DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER(1971), as well as one of Jake's partners in CHINATOWN (1974)and the cult favorite WALKING TALL (1973), among many others. And, speaking of cults, yes, he is also the father of everyone's favorite Warhol stand-in, Crispin Glover. Truly not since the Carradine clan has so much talented eccentricity flowed through the veins of such a small gene pool.

Product Description

Count Dracula and his lustful harem of insidious undead brides terrorize a village in Transylvania. No woman is safe and a score of young girls are abducted for their blood. A young American teams with legendary vampire hunter Van Helsing to assault the forbidden castle, determined to kill Dracula and put an end his reign of horror.

Director Peter Horak is best known for his stunt work in films - including The Nutty Professor (1996) and Throw Momma From The Train (1987) - and in television shows such as "Hill Street Blues." Van Helsing is played by Bruce Glover, who had featured roles in such films as Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and Chinatown (1974) as well as television's "The Dukes Of Hazzard" and "The A-Team."

1.0 out of 5 stars TOOTHLESS SPOOF August 13, 2004
Format:DVD
I don't know what movie the other reviewers saw, but it can't be the same one? There are so many editing bloops that it reminds me of Ray Harryhausen's stop motion animation.

Bruce Glover (who played one of the gay killers in DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER) tries to inject Leslie Nielsen like humor in his inept Dr. Van Helsing, but it just isn't funny. It's all bee done before and much better.

Denny Sachen as the studly Stephen has the emotional range of a rutabaga; Kerry Dustin as Carla radiates a quiet sensuality but given the role she plays, it is useless. The rest of the cast, who also have a lot of no talent, merely add bodies. Some of the effects are okay, but again been there done that much better. While the photography is beautiful and captures the atmosphere of Moravia and what-not, this movie is really bad. The three actors who play Dracula have got to be three of the most repulsive looking things I've seen on screen.

Good idea, horrible execution.

4.0 out of 5 stars clever and different October 4, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film cleverly combines contemporary humor with the revered classic, Dracula. The plot is unique and the locations are great. It is definitely an entertaining, fun movie to watch with those who would appreciate an ingeneous twist on a world-reknown storyline. It is not what it seems to be. In this respect, it is a pleasant surprise.

3.0 out of 5 stars A B B B Movie!! June 18, 2004
Format:DVD
An awful attempt at making a modern dracula horror movie. Extremely poor picture and sound quality. The sound is slightly out of sinc with the mouths of the people and it sounds like the mics were bad anyway. It is hilarious to watch anyway! I give it 3 stars because I love B movies and this one will be awsome to show your friends to see their reactions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, campy and cool March 15, 2001
By A Customer
You seldom see such lavish, large-scale locations in a micro-budget film. The incredible antiquity of Prague is evident in the opening sequence, and the cinematographer makes better use of the moody settings than "Mission Impossible" did, which was shot at the same place.
The opening credits sequence packs the same ghoulish power of the Universal classics, featuring the world's largest crypt of human skeletons...also located in the Czech Republic. A fifteenth century cathedral, two incrediblly ominous castles, and flying coffins create an authentic yet campy vision of the Dracula legend.
The cast! Talk about a great-looking leading man and a hot chick girlfriend. They make a memorable bedroom scene both sensuous and totally hilarious as they go for it in the four-poster. And of course the sexy vampire babes, who go after anything male, including psychotic Dracula, innocent hero Steven, and crusty supporting character actor Bruce Glover as Van Helsing.
While the Die Hard movies have nothing to fear from this little upstart film, the action level and the stunts are ambitious and impressive, given the obviously low budget, and demonstrate that the director didn't forget his roots. (Peter Horak was listed in the Guiness Book for years as the holder of the world record for jumping a boat. He was also a famous stuntman in the 80's who crashed cars, did high falls and even lit himself on fire.)
While I didn't laugh at a lot of the jokes, There are moments that treat the horror film genre with reverence. There are certainly some interesting twists on the Dracula mythology for all you vampire buffs.
The special digital effects spice up the acting, and include Dracula morphing into a bat as well as flying through the air, a la Superman.
