After centuries of rest, conditions are right for the wicked Count Dracula to rise from the dead…and seek his one true bride. He sets his sights on the young and lovely Miss Lucy Seward and determines to do everything in his power to claim her for his own! But poor Lucy is already truly, madly, deeply in love with young hero, Jonathan Harker – who doesn’t stand a chance at winning his ladylove unless he can come up with a small fortune in a hurry.
Add to the plot a cunning old vampire hunter, an outraged bride from Dracula’s past, an over-sized pup, a potent good fairy, and an indispensable dame and we have the ingredients for one of the zaniest versions of the Dracula story yet!
