Dracula: Dead And Loving It (1995)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Another spoof from the mind of Mel Brooks. This time he's out to poke fun at the Dracula myth. Basically, he took "Bram Stoker's Dracula," gave it a new cast and a new script and made a big joke out of it. The usual, rich English are attacked by Dracula and Dr. Van Helsing is brought in to save the day.

- Lover at Picnic: Would you care for some wine? Dracula: I never drink wine... oh, what the hell. Let me try it.
Dracula: [in a dream walking about in the daylight thinking it's real] Everything is so lovely and colorful, and the sun is so shinny! [He spots to lovers having a picnic] Dracula: Say there, I just can't help that it is so lovely out here today, but if I could just spare it for a piece of you're... chicken? Lover at Picnic: Oh sure, and some wine? Dracula: I never drink... wine [thinks for about 3 seconds] Dracula: Oh what the hell, let me try it. [tastes the wine] Dracula: ...It's good! Renfield: [Running towards him shouting] Master! Master! Dracula: [Happy to see him] Renfield, look at me! I'm drinking wine, and eating chicken! Renfield: Master, what are you doing out in the daytime? Dracula: Relax Renfield, I am cured! [smoke starts coming out of him] Renfield: No, no you're not! Look! Dracula: [realizing the smoke] I... made... a mistake... I've got to get back to my coffin! [He wakes up in panic noticing the dark out the window then, calms down] Dracula: It is night time, so it wasn't real, I was having... a daymare.
Van Helsing: [examining Lucy's throat with a magnifying lens] Three tiny puncture Marks on her Throat... Dr. Steward: Three? Van Helsing: [breathes on and polishes the lens] Two. Two tiny Puncture marks on her throat.
Renfield: [as the two Vampire brides climb into his bed] Whatare you on about? What's all this then? Who are you people? I-I'll have you know that's my knee your Straddiling! Renfield: [they start to gyrate on top of him] No, Stop! Stop it at once! Oh! Ah... No, no this is wrong! This is wrong! This is wrong, do you hear me, wrong! this is- [He starts to moan] Renfield: WRONG ME! WRONG ME! WRONG MY BRAINS OUT!
Jonathan Harker: She's alive? Van Helsing: She's Nosferatu. Jonathan Harker: She's Italian?
- For the scene in which Steven Weber puts a stake in Lucy's heart, Mel did not tell him that he would be subsequently covered in 200 gallons of blood, so that his reaction would appear natural.
Much of the dialogue from the original Dracula (1931) is repeated here and spoofed, as well as Nielsen doing a spoof-impersonation of the famed Bela Lugosi.
The character of Madame Ouspenskaya (Gypsy Woman) was named after Maria Ouspenskaya, who played the character "Maleva" in The Wolf Man (1941) and Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943).
Renfield's laughter and crazed expression at the end of the "You are my slave" scene and at the end of the "Eating insects right off the ground" scene are tributes to the original Renfield, Dwight Frye, in Bela Lugosi's original Dracula.
As Renfield arrives at the hospital at the end of the film, he turns, holds up his hands and laughs exactly as Herman Munster does in the credits for the original TV show starring Fred Gwynne.
