Überfälliges Heimkino-Comeback Dieser Vampir-Kultfilm beweist Horror kann auch richtig Spaß machen!


+++ Opinion +++

Of course, genre connoisseurs already know that horror can also be great fun. But scary haters often stand by in amazement and ask themselves: «What’s so great or even funny about that?» Many a beginner-friendly genre film is laughed at in return by die-hard horror cracks. However, there is a gray area that experience has shown that film fans from both sides of the discussion can get used to it — and that is loving pastiche!

Few directors have mastered this subgenre as well as Mel Brooks , whose parodies never lash out at their goals from above. And now, finally, one of Mel Brooks’ horror homages is celebrating its belated Blu-ray premiere: » Dracula — Dead But Happy » with Leslie Nielsen as the feel-good prince of bloodsuckers!

Brooks’ parodies always serve as a tongue-in-cheek declaration of love full of inside jokes for connoisseurs of the mocked-up stuff. At the same time, they are easy-going, accessible jokes, so that even non-experts can be shown in a witty way what is so great about the targets of Brooks’ gag attacks.

This is «Dracula — Dead But Happy»

Transylvania in 1893: A Briton ( Peter MacNicol ) wants to sell a house in England to the dreaded Count Dracula. And this despite the fact that everyone warns him not to go anywhere near the strange castle inhabitant. But contrary to all expectations, the deal works: Dracula signs the contract — but then makes the lawyer his involuntary assistant and travels to London with him. There, the bloodthirsty Count is looking for new victims — but finds a powerful enemy in the vampire hunter Van Helsing (Mel Brooks).
