Dracula: Dead and Loving it! Has to be the FUNNIEST Vampire Comedy I have ever seen. If this doesn’t make you laugh I don’t know what will!

Time to be revived and worth a watch
This film flopped apparently and didn’t seem to get a good response from critics who killed it with Bat Reviews! However it flew in their face as it has a massive fan base.
It grossed over $10million at the Box Office. So it’s due a little revival and new lifeblood and what better time to bring it back to life than the run up to Halloween. 🙂
If you are a fan of Hammer Horror and Comedy, don’t take Dracula too seriously and want to laugh out loud at something silly, give it a watch. Personally I think it’s Fangtastic. 😉
