Cinema Crazed

A very above par and often funny satire of a horror classic.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A few effective gags emerge from this hectic concoction of unfunny pratfalls, juvenile mugging and tedious enema jokes.

Either this is the lamest Mel Brooks comedy ever or it's too close to other contenders to make much difference.

The only real sparks are set off by MacNicol as Renfield, the solicitor who develops a taste for flies and spiders after being bitten by Dracula.

Brooks, as Van Helsing, is one of the more successful aspects, but he hasn't imbued in his stock company a similar ability to rise above their underwritten roles.

Another Mel Brooks stinker late in his career.

Brooks spends so much time retelling the old Stoker legend that he hasn't enough time left for the necessary gags.

There isn't any sight sadder than the old champion being unaware that his time has passed away.

A few bright spots, but not anywhere near Brooks' Young Frankenstein.

Not to venture forth some sort of radical idea, but aren't comedies supposed to have jokes?

This anemic farce came from the mad-genius creator of "Young Frankenstein"?

It is a sad state when all the best aspects of a Mel Brooks comedy have little to do with the humor.

San Francisco Examiner

When so many of the jokes refer to old movie stars and the often hilarious conventions of movies from the 1930s and '40s, they fly over the heads of a major segment of today's movie-going population.

Dracula is anemic and mediocre, with only one or two moments to remind you of the former, funnier Brooks.
