Despite being a spoof, this sticks to Bram Stoker's source material much better than most of the recent post-Golden Age Dracula movies. It's Mel Brooks, therefore in a genre of it's own: Love him or hate him. Silly and nonsensical, but quite funny in moments, with Leslie Nielsen vamping in his usual style.
6/10
