Although the English soundtrack has the replacement for "I Love The Nightlife" the Spanish soundtrack has the original. As nothing is spoken during this scene the movie can be watched in its original form by simply switching
soundtracks during the disco scene - which on my DVD player requires only a single button press.

I have loved this film since I first saw it 15 years ago as a child, I really believed it was a serious film. George Hamilton is so good it just never occurred to me that A/ Vamps weren't real and B/ This was not how they truely behaved.
This is a deffinate buy. Haven't got this R1 version as live in England and the R2 I picked up taped over the "I love the Nightlife" song from the disco. Trust me and check with the seller if the song is still on there as you can really tell they're not dancing in time with the music in my version.
Otherwise fab-tastic film still makes me laugh. "You are getting sleepier and sleepier"

Love at First Bite, following hot on the heels of Young Frankenstein, is another parody of a famous movie monster, this time, everyone’s favourite Transylvanian vampire. However this time, the Count and his servant Renfield are evicted by the new Romanian Regime and decide to emigrate to then present day New York. Once there, not only do they find a world far removed from the fog and crypts of their homeland, but Dracula also finds yet another reincarnation of his eternal love Mina, here a model called Cindy, whom he sets out to woo.

Leading is George Hamilton as Dracula, who is simply excellent. Rather than just lazily channel Lugosi like Leslie Nielsen would do in the other big spoof of Dracula, Hamilton gives the role a dignified air. He has the accent and getup of Lugosi, but not to the point of excessively cartoony, while his height and face are more in line with someone like Christopher Lee, a sort of epitome of the tall dark stranger. Instead, in the zany category, we have Arte Johnson as Renfield and future director Richard Benjamin as the great grandson of Van Helsing, now a psychiatrist in New York. While Johnson adds a strange likeability to the usually maverick and oddball Renfield, Benjamin just cracks over the course of the film as, despite technically being the rational voice, everyone just dismisses him as a nut, and he runs with it. Susan Saint James as Cindy on the other hand doesn’t really have much to do save for being an inversion of the typically dainty love interest in vampire films, and though she does well, she doesn’t move much beyond being a one note joke.

On a technical level, the film is mostly directed pretty basically, given the New York setting, but the opening sequence in Transylvania is wonderful. Stan Dragoti, the same man who directed Mr.

I've always loved this film but found it very hard to acquire in a modern form (I still have the VHS off-air recording) so was very keen to get this one. Disappointment. You do have to tell it to use English each time (the original soundtrack), but my main gripe is the quality of both the actual image (which a top range Panasonic plasma exposes quite cruelly) and the transfer to a format that forces clunky scanning across the film in order to fit a TV rather than preserves the original cinema image. That said it's watchable, but I shall continue to look out for a top quality release.

This is a fabulous movie and a great parody on a fantastic character. I first saw this movie as a little girl and it's been one of my favourites for many years. I would give this film more than 5 stars if it was possible, apart from the following problem.

I bought this dvd as a birthday gift to myself (as you do!) and was dismayed when the disco scene started. The music was ok, but when the camera followed Dracula's and Cindy's foot movements, the song was completely out of place and in my head all I could hear was "I Love The Nightlife". Extremely disappointed. Now when I watch the film I just skip it to the next scene, as I can't stand watching something that looks out of sync! If a petition is available to get this song back in the movie, please let me know and I'll be happy to add mine and all my friends names to it as they feel the same way.

This film is a forgotten gem, as evocative of Dracula done well as it is of the seventies. Although a spoof, it is extremely reverent to the story of the world's most famous vampire - it's just that Bram Stoker never got round to telling us what the Count might be doing in 1979.

The answer is: getting kicked out of his castle by angry villagers and bureaucrats in the pocket of Ceausescu ('without me, Transylvania will be about as exciting as Bucharest...on a Monday night'), catching a plane to New York with loyal servant Renfield and his penchant for eating the sort of thing Ant and Dec force down your throat on 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!' and tracking down the girl of his dreams.

The gags may be juvenile, but they're priceless: Van Helsing's ancestor trying to exorcise Dracula with a Star of David, rather than a crucifix; the Count being mugged in the Bronx; alcohol in someone's bloodstream giving him a hangover.

Totally brilliant. I can never hear that cheesy disco favourite 'I Love the Nightlife (Disco Round)' without thinking of this film. A triumph!
