What to know

critics consensus

Love at First Bite could use some more warm-blooded barbs to liven up its undead comedy, but George Hamilton's campy charisma gives the prince of darkness some welcome pizazz. Read critic reviews

    Or Dracula Updated and Down In New York. Nobody's buying the old routines and so Drac & Renfield go to disco era Big Apple where they try to fit into the modern vibe. Mostly the deal throughout is hokey, but Arte Johnson and Richard Benjamin do provide some chuckles.

    Another Dracula movie, in this one the count moves to NY. It is pretty funny for the most part, but it's predictable. It could have been better.

    A bit stupid and not up to the standards of a more recent vampire movie, (this was made in 1976), but harmless enough. I could no way in hell believe Susan Saint James as a model, though.
