Peter MacNicol as Renfield is the best part in this movie!

I have nothing but memories of LOLing at this and Spy Hard when I rented them on home video in the 90s!
I actually thought for your final Bloodthirsty-Thursday, you would finally review Son of Dracula with Lon Chaney Jr. and finish off the Universal Dracula trilogy.

Awesome movie! I actually prefer this one over Young Frankenstein

IMO, this is Mel Brooks’ worst film. I have a feeling this movie is the reason he retied. I don’t blame him.

Sorry but Robin Hood: Men in Tights is way worst than this one.
October 27, 2016 at 9:30 pm
” MASTER… * 🙂 * ” . I like all Brook movies, but sorry, Men in Tights is the worst. Not a lot into To Be Or Not To Be.

Yeah, I can see that if you’re not really into old-school horror, this movie would just be kinda meh. Spaceballs worked because everyone knows Star wars and popular scifi.

That’s EXACTLY the problem with the movie. The filmmakers wrote all these great jokes, but since most of the audience doesn’t care about or has even seen all those classics they didn’t get all the jokes.
It’s a shame really.

in my country subtitled as Vampires without teeth, sounds stupid like Die Hard as Glass Trao.
srry Glass Trap 🙂

James this wasn’t the last of the spoofs. They had the ones the Wayans bros. Making fun of Scream, and Paranormal Activity. I know they aren’t the same slapstick comedy but they are some stupid funny ones.

I disagree that the era of spoofs are dead. We still have Scary Movies, Not Anothers, and so on. Let’s also remember that Weird Al Yankovich had his most successful album released recently.

I saw this movie when it comes out in theater, and did not like it, expect for the stake scene, which make me laugh a lot, even if a saw Braindead before, and also all the scene whit Renfield.. Now a saw it a few times on tv, and I found it more funny, but it’s not as funny as what we where expecting from Mel Brooks. But its a good farewell from him, since is movie before was the horrible Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

Try watching it in black and white… it works surprisingly well! Love your reviews!!
October 27, 2016 at 9:32 pm
I love that movie. Love Nelson also.

I remember seeing the commercial for this one, looked goofy and funny, but I never did see it. Maybe I should look into it. I also recall watching Saturday The 14th (1981) every time after Ernest Scared Stupid (1991). There was also the Tropic Thunder (2008) film which was kinda like Platoon in a way. I usually see more parodies done in small bits in animated shows now though like in The Simpsons, Family Guy, or South Park, and also in adult films. Then there’s Rick And Morty with Back to the Future as its main inspiration.

I had to agreed it wasn’t the best of Mel Brook it was bareable. Maybe I’ll take another look …..one day.

I didn’t know it had negative reception. I love it.
And I really miss this type of films and SPECIALLY Leslie Nielsen. Who was THE GOD of comedy.
I miss the deadpan delivery.
All we get nowadays is boring indie comedies. Fuck that… -.-

You made this movie sound a lot better than I remember it. I think it’s worth another shot.
I think all of Mel Brooks’ spoof movies are pretty great. It’s too bad it ended with this. He’s still alive 20 years later, he COULD have directed another one…
October 28, 2016 at 1:38 pm
So sad these kind if movies are no longer made.
The closest you get now are the “scary movie” movies and others like it but they aren’t anywhere near as good as the likes of The Naked Gun.
And about this movie, I always liked it. Never undertood why people didn’t. And I’m not a horror fan so I didn’t get the references either.
But I always loved Leslie Nielsen. RIP.

If you are a fan of Leslie Nielson, you could watch Repossessed. A spoof of the Exorcist. Also, Linda Blair has an important role. HBO had this on repeat when I was a kid.

Raspburry? We’re not serving raspburries.

Me and my girlfriend from Italy just LOVE this movie!
We watch it every 2/3 month and it really grows on me.
The Renfield character is overwhelingly funny.

I found Transylvania 6-5000 far better for a spoof comedy of horror movies.
I also disagree that parody genre was dying. after all we got americna pies, scary movie and other shit attempts at parody. The problem was that the genre turned to shit.
