SYNOPSIS

The story of Dracula is an age old tale, of the most famous vampire of all, kept alive by the blood of young girls, whom he took for his brides. As time has progressed, the story has been elaborated more and more. In recent times the film era has taken on the story, particularly with the likes of Christopher Lee, Bella Lugosi and, more recently, in a version by Bram Stoker.

The story has it's more humorous side, however, and this version is no exception!

Our story centres around an American teacher, Nadia Naive, who takes her class on an imromptu Geography field trip to Transylvania. She unwittingly becomes the next expected "victim" for Count Dracula; that is, of course, until superhero English professor, Nick, turns up, foiling the plot and whisking Nadia off into the sunset...or does he!?
