October 16th: Dracula – Dead And Loving It! (1995)

This post is the sixteenth in my 31 Days of Vampires! series for October 2014. Let me just point out that if any other director attempted the gags that Mel Brooks does, I doubt they would get laughs – probably groans. But there is a delightfulness and innocence...
