Transylvania 6-5000 (1985) - Comedy, Fantasy, Horror

Hohum Score



Two skeptical reporters are sent to Transylvania to find the Frankenstein monster - or get fired. They are laughed at there but something suspicious is going on - maybe there are monsters, vampires, mummies and werewolves.

It's really goofy but enjoyable.

But I found this a painfully tedious waste of a talented cast.

Overall an enjoyable movie.

There are a few genuine laughs here and Davis' first appearance in vampire gear is worth a rewind, but most of the movie is just exasperatingly unfunny and tiresome.

Just about every scene involving the servants of the castle and their silly antics is a waste of time.

Excellent spoof of all the old horror classics, and a very enjoyable endeavor.

Otherwise it's a very slow 40s horror spoof.

Were I not with friends, and so cheap, I would have walked out.

This is also really what helps to make this movie such an enjoyable one to watch, even though it's really not being a great movie by any means.

Still, it's oddly enjoyable.

Cuz any adult by the time they hit 18 has seen enough movies to have had at least a small share that were so bad they had to turn off.

So spare me with the worst movie bs.

This has some goofy/corny moments, but I've always enjoyed it.

But there is enough oddball humor sprinkled throughout to make it worth watching, though apparently much of the comedy was improvised by the actors, which leaves little credit for De Luca, who seems to be a much better collaborator than solo writer-director.

One gets the feeling he started out having fun but at some point during the production grew bored.

Anyone who manages to brave this film right through to its end may pray that a stake be driven through their heart to relieve them from the agony of boredom.
