Love at First Bite

This lowbrow vampire parody became a tremendous popular success, despite the fact that it seems to have escaped from a television set, with its cast—Richard Benjamin, Susan St. James, Arte Johnson—intact. Only George Hamilton, as a displaced Dracula roaming the streets of New York, seems remotely at home in the medium: his mugging, as extreme as it is, looks muted alongside his costars. Casting Dracula as the Last Romantic, Scott Fitzgerald-style, was a clever idea, but nothing clever remains in the film's hodgepodge of flat one-liners and graceless slapstick. Stan Dragoti directed (1979).
