Too dumb for me

Its often intriguing to watch famous comedians in their early days when they played supporting roles to bigger stars and had to make do with slapstick comedy. Such is the plight of Michael Richards (of Seinfield fame) in this movie. This camp comedy came out in the mid 1980s and highlighted three of the bigger stars of that time; Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, and Ed Bagley Jr. None of these three were top-notch comedians of their time, and it showed in this spoof of horror movies. Basically, two reporters are sent to Transylvania to generate a story for their tabloid newspaper employer. There, they encounter modern day versions of Dracula, Werewolf, the Mummy and Frankenstein, but with an interesting twist of course. Taking place in what should be Romania, none of the Transylvanian characters seem Eastern European by any stretch of the word, and hence the accents are really crappy. So with the acting in general. The DVD itself is very bare-bones; no subtitles even. All in all, a waste of money and time.
