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

TV Guide
October 20, 2009
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.

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.

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"?

This time, unfortunately, he's sucking on a dry vein.

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

If any movie proves that Mel Brooks' genius for skewering creaky genres has evaporated, it's this anemic attempt to draw new blood from low-flying vampire high jinks.
