A young group of monster fanatics attempt to save their hometown from Count Dracula and his monsters.
Despite multiple references from characters about the 40s, the original Universal monster films all came out in the 1930s. Browning's Dracula was early 1931, Whale's Frankenstein was late 1931, Freund's Mummy was 1932, and Walker's original werewolf film (Werewolf of London) was 1935. Admittedly though, the 1941 The Wolf Man with Lon Chaney Jr is the more popular version. Arnold's Creature from the Black Lagoon was much later, released in 1954. Truly, the only real 1940s monster referenced in the film is done so in passing: the teacher "Cat Head" is a clear reference to the 1942 Cat People.
Don't kick the church, it's religious!
Rudy: Locked is what it is!
Sean: Alright then, we'll just have to do it out here.
Horace: Oh REAL religious, Sean, why don't we just do it at Burger King?
In the scene where Del Crenshaw and his partner are speeding to Del's home in the police car and they approach Dracula's car, dialog is heard from his partner but the lips don't appear to be moving.
The TV print shown on TNT contains roughly four minutes of additional deleted scenes not included on the DVD release, including:
