Editorial Reviews

Tabloid reporters Jack Harrison (Jeff Goldblum) and Gil Turner (Ed Begley, Jr.) are sent to Transylvania with two choices: find the Frankenstein monster or find new jobs. But before the jumpy journalists can dig up their big story, they must first face the horrors of an extremely clumsy butler (Michael Richards), a nymphomaniac vampire (Geena Davis) and a semi-mad doctor (Joseph Bologna), as well as assorted mummies, werewolves and more Transylvanian oddballs. Can these two bumbling heroes unravel this monstrous mystery or are they in for some very scary surprises? John Byner, Carol Kane, Jeffrey Jones and Norman Fell co-star in this hilarious horror spoof written and directed by Rudy DeLuca (co-writer of Caveman and High Anxiety). For laughs, screams and a good time, call Transylvania 6-5000!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great...if you like this sort of thing October 22, 2005
When my parents first bought a reconditioned top loading VCR in the late eighties, the video store had four films to rent; Legend, Driller Killer, The Magic Toyshop and Transylvania 65000. My views on the film might be slightly clouded by the fact that I watched this film approximately once a week for 3 years. It is worth buying for the Butler/Doll scene alone. There's also a brilliant slipping-on-a-banana gag. I would recommend it highly. My Dad doesn't laugh at many films but he was streaming with tears and boogers at this one (once a week for 3 years).

Please don't press play with the expectation of doing any higher learning. Just go with it. I, too, recall this one fondly from my childhood and I couldn't wait for it to be released on DVD. The early appearance by Michael "Cosmo Kramer" Richards is worth the purchase price by itself, not to mention Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis in roles they might rather forget. All that notwithstanding, my favorite two characters have to be Lupi and Radu. What a marriage!

4.0 out of 5 stars For a good time, call... September 12, 2005
Transylvania 6-5000! Jeff Goldblum plays straight-man tabloid reporter to child-like partner Ed Begley Jr. in this hilarious monster-movie spoof, as they are sent on a mission to Transylvania to uncover the truth about a suspicious videotape that allegedly features the real Frankenstein monster! As enthusiastic Gil (Begley Jr.) pursues the story, skeptical Jack (Goldblum) pursues a lovely American tourist with a small daughter. Everything seems to be calm and quaint in the charming and very hospitable Transylvanian village, but, once the two reporters begin to work together, they discover there is more to the sleepy little town than meets the eye! There are physical gags and witty banter aplenty in this fantastically 80's style take on "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein," complete with Jeffrey Jones as the Mayor, John Byner and Carol Kane as dimwitted servants, and Joseph Bologna as the mad doctor. All contribute laughs by the cartful, but it's Geena Davis and Seinfeld's Michael Richards who really steal the show as a nymphomaniac vampiress named Odette and Fejos, the token brute. Those of you who cherish the comedy teams of yester-year will get a kick out of the chemistry between Goldblum and Begley Jr., and they'll make you wish that films like this (and "Brain Donors") were more successful.

As for DVD details, I personally own the double feature disc with "Elvira: Mistress of the Dark" on the flip-side, which is the one I recommend picking up considering the price (and that I find both films hilarious for the witching season, or anytime). If you aren't interested in Elvira though, this version seems to have all the same extras (assuming it has the theatrical trailers too, which Amazon does not have listed with the other extras, though it would be odd if they are not included).

This movie is one of the few minor horror comedies I watched when I was six years old that still holds up today while I'm almost twenty-two.I recommend the DVD for the stories director Rudy DeLuca tells about how he'd wanted Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari for Goldblum and Begley's respective parts but New World didn't know Tom Hanks (Hah!) And how Ed Begley recommended his good friend Michael Richards for the part of Fejos and Richards ad-libbed almost everything that he did.
My personal favorite line, after Geena Davis' lady Dracula attacks Ed Begley's character:
Begley: Do you smell perfume?
Goldblum: Yes! And I know what was in this room!
Begley: What?
Goldblum: The Creature from Estee Lauder!

So you're a huge, multinational corporation like Dow Chemical, and you're trying to unfreeze some assets from an eastern European country, but due to some strange legal rigmarole, the money can only be spent within the country of what do you do? Finance a movie! And, apparently that's how this film, Transylvania 6-5000 (1985), came about, at least according to information found on The Internet Movie Database. Written and directed by Rudy De Luca (Silent Movie, High Anxiety, Caveman), this Yugoslavian production stars Jeff Goldblum (Silverado, The Fly) and Ed Begley Jr. (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind). Also appearing is Joseph Bologna (Blame It on Rio, The Woman in Red), Carol Kane (The Princess Bride), Jeffrey Jones (Howard the Duck, Beetle Juice), John Byner, voice of the ant and the aardvark from the Pink Panther cartoons, Michael Richards ("Fridays", "Seinfeld"), Teresa Ganzel (The Toy, National Lampoon Goes to the Movies), Donald `Ogre' Gibb (Revenge of the Nerds, Meatballs Part II), Norman Fell ("Three's Company"), and MENSA member Geena Davis (Fletch, The Fly, Thelma & Louise) interesting note, it was while working together on this film Goldblum and Davis fell in love, eventually getting married in 1987 (and then divorced in 1990).

Jack Harrison (Goldblum) and Gil Turner (Begley) work for a tabloid rag. Their editor (Fell), after receiving an amateur video featuring what might be Frankenstein's monster attacking a tourist, sends the boys to Transylvania to get the story. Jack, who aspires to be a real journalist someday, thinks it's a hoax, but Gil's all onboard primarily because his father's the editor. The boys arrive in the quaint, picturesque town, but their inquires regarding monsters only elicit laughter from the residents.
