The theatrical movie was well known for its signature song played during the disco sequence, the disco classic "I Love the Nightlife" sung by Alicia Bridges. Due to licensing issues, the song has been removed from most TV broadcasts and all DVD transfers, and replaced by a different song, a cover version of "The Man That I Love". The Bridges song is still listed in the closing credits, and is also heard on the original trailer (included on the DVD) which had it excerpted no less than three times. Fans of the song and the movie worldwide have been furious about its removal from the DVD release. Fortunately, "I Love the Night Life" was restored for the Region 1 Blu-ray released by Shout! Factory in 2015.
Shh! Children of the night, shut up!
Vlad Tepes, the real Dracula, was named "Vladislav", not "Vladimir", as he is incorrectly named in the film.
The TV version has an additional scene of Vlad being seduced by a lonely housewife on the subway
