Editorial Reviews

Dracula has never been so funny and dashing - to say nothing of being an awesome disco dancer - as in this "delightful movie with a bang-up cast" (The New York Times) led by the epitome of suave, George Hamilton, and featuring first-rate performances from Susan Saint James, Richard Benjamin, Dick Shawn, Arte Johnson, Sherman Hemsley and Isabel Sanford! Evicted from Transylvania, Dracula (Hamilton) goes to New York to make Cindy (Saint James), a model with an old soul, his eternal bride. To his delight, she quickly falls for his necking style. But when her would-be boyfriend (Benjamin), a descendant of the vampire-killing Van Helsings, meets his romantic rival, he's determined to put a stake in the count's plans!

Well, as far as the movie itself goes, this movie deserves 10+ stars, because not since, Young Frankenstein, has a movie so poignantly and perfectly, captured the true feel of the original classic, of which it so lovingly satires.

George Hamilton plays Dracula, like no one else (except maybe, Jack Palance, but that's another review altogether :) doing Bela Lugosi, proud, whilst still putting his own stamp on the character.

And who can forget, Arte Johnson, as Dracula's , "Cockroach eating friend" (he-he-he... :) Renfield, and Richard Benjamin as their foil, Van Helsing ("Dracula's stolen my girlfriend, and I think he's better in bed with her, then I am...")

This movie is a hands down, no, if-ands-or-buts, classic, from, "Children of the night, shut up", to the end credits.

So why did I only give it 4 stars then?

Well, when this great homage to the classic Dracula films was first released to the big screen (I went to see it with my first girlfriend) there was this great show stopping dance sequence where Dracula seduces Cindy ("The only woman that I have ever loved") on the dance floor to the tune of the disco classic, I Love The Night Life, but then, years and years later, when the movie finally came out to video, I was dismayed to discover that this song had been replaced by some generic disco song.

If you've NEVER seen this movie, you will enjoy it. However, if you remember the theatrical version with the Alicia Bridge's song "I Love the Night Life" in the disco scene...well, the lame substitution of a different song has ruined this dvd for me. If I buy a dvd and the contents are SIGNIFICANTLY different than the version I saw in the theater, that information should be available on the package prior to purchase. I'm VERY thankful I got this from Netflix prior to buying it. Ain't gonna happen...unless they re-issue it with "I Love the Night Life" restored.

...al-vays, a longie." This movie rocks. It's very 70's...disco dancing, Afro haircuts, joint smoking, Susan St. James, and free love. Who could ask for anything more?
George Hamilton has a great butt and makes for a dang sexy Dracula. Other than the George swooning, though, this is a movie that makes me laugh out loud just about every time I watch it. Richard Benjamen is hysterical as the jealous boyfriend who keeps unsuccessfully trying to kill the count. ("No, Rosenberg. That is for a vere-volf.") Arte Johnson is a bug-chomping bucket-o-laffs as Renfield. Susan St. James has a cute, self-effacing humor about her and is funny and lovable as the model who falls for Drac. It's just plain entertaining. I will definitely buy it if it's released on DVD.

This take-off on the timeless Dracula story is one of the funniest films ever to come out of Hollywood.. George Hamilton is a riot as Dracula, and the movie opens when the poor guy (er, vampire) is about to be summarily kicked out of his Transylvanian castle by the local communist functionaries who want to turn it into a training gym ("In 24 hours ve vill return with trampolines, uneven parallel bars, and Nadia Comaneci. Don't be here.") He and his trusty sidekick Renfield (hilariously played by Arte Johnson) hop the night flight to New York, where Dracula's coffin gets swapped at the airport and he finds himself at the Reverend Mike's funeral parlor in Harlem. (For those unfamiliar with the setting, Reverend Mike's funeral parlor is a spoof on the actual funeral home owned by the real-life funeral director Reverend Ike.) Rising out of his coffin and sending the crowd of mourners screaming for the nearest exits, he's out on the streets of New York searching for the lady of his dreams, a pill-popping anorexic supermodel whose picture he fell in love with on the cover of a fashion magazine. Turning himself into a dog to get close to the lady on a fashion shoot, and running afoul of New York's Finest at the same time (hey, if you're a dog and you gotta do your thing and a fire hydrant isn't handy, a cop's leg will do just as well), he almost ends up in the local pound but springs himself and heads for a night of adventures that includes biting a wino in the neck and getting hilariously drunk from the wino's blood. He heads down to a local nightclub, meets the supermodel (Susan St. James) and it's love at first sight (yep, and bite too). Complications arrive in the form of St. James's nutty psychiatrist boyfriend (Richard Benjamin), who suspects there is something fishy about the competition.Read more ›

I was thrilled to see one of my favorite comedies released on DVD. I agree with the review by bobtec. The dance sequence number "I Love the Nightlife" is still missing in this home video version. To me, it was one of the best moments in the film. To see it replaced with another song just ruined it for me. VHS had the same problem. I ended up selling my DVD after one viewing. However, if the song means nothing to you it is a nice digital transfer. Funny, the trailer has the song in it. Bobtec got it right. Wait for a TV broadcast.

"I Love the Nightlife" on "Love at First Bite"
Thank you, as well as all the others, who revealed the missing song. (They probably couldn't get the rights from the artist to include it in the DVD.) Because of this omission I won't be buying this movie. When I think of this movie, I hear that song and I'm 20 again!

Unusually brilliantly done late 70's comedy is this!
yeah goott'a love it just way it is, except of course the removal/replacement of original-disco-hit song by Alicia Bidges "I love the Night Life". But it is a great comedy.
