It's really bad, but at least it's not Friedberg and Seltzer levels of bad.

This is dinosaur stuff. A rubber chicken and a squirting flower would've really capped things off.

Fart jokes ensue.

'Transylmania' LOOKS like a move. It's on film, after all, and it has a script and actors. But there the resemblance to any real movie ends. This tasteless mess should have been shuttled straight to DVD.

David and Scott Hillenbrand's stoner horror-comedy predictably provides more groans than laughs. The filmmakers had better pray someone in the theater is holding, if you know what we mean.

Woefully dull-witted.

With stronger actors and real writers, this might've been a vintage comedy you could sink your...nope, not going there.

Energetic but uninspired mix of teen comedy and supernatural silliness.

If your idea of a good time is laughing with repulsion at a humpbacked Romanian nympho with a torture-loving midget dad, or tittering every time a bong appears, a darkened theater awaits you.

Transylmania is such a colossal comedic misfire that it makes the execrable Scary Movie films look like masterworks of Preston Sturges-esque genius by comparison.

It's destined to spend a short and painful life in theaters and then join the ranks of the DVD and late-night-cable undead.

It has no artistic or social value, and it contains not one genuine laugh.

Transylmania's characters are intensely irritating and its comedy is so obvious that you'll see the film's limp attempts at jokes coming a mile away.

Spoofs horror cliches rather than stringing together random, witless pop-culture gags like the Scary Movie franchise .... [but is] vulgar, juvenile, gross and not particularly funny.

One laugh -- Vampires, stuffed in their coffins on a horse-drawn wagon, whining to the driver -- "Are ve DERE yet?"

A no-stars, no-plot, no-point vampire spoof about a group of coeds studying abroad in a haunted castle, Transylmania boasts the kind of acting and direction usually relegated to the adult section of your local video store.

Lame vampire spoof has no bite.

I surveyed the crowd at the screening I attended, feeling the chill in the air as seven strangers sat in stone-cold silence -- not a single laugh from anyone. The eighth moviegoer? Fast asleep five minutes in. I've never envied a person more.
