Spoof. By David Rogers.
Cast: 6m., 10w. Night falls on a mysterious castle in the Alps, and a group of young American hostelers crosses the drawbridge to meet the incredible family! Papa, descended from Count Dracula, and Mama, descended from Dr. Frankenstein, can't find a husband for their lovely teenage daughter, Dirga. So, despite Granny's objections, they turn their ancient castle in the Alps into a youth hostel, hoping to find one. The first group of Americans arrives for a weekend, and the Draculas pick young Buddy for their future son-in-law. They regret that he's so normal. Still, he's all there is. The Americans are a bit unnerved by the castle. There's a caged raven quoting "Nevermore "and a man's face screaming the hours from inside a cuckoo clock. Besides dancing to "Night on Bald Mountain" on the hi-fi and refreshments of tiger's milk and brownies, there is the howling of Daddy's wolves and the grunting of the pet alligator Queenie. It's an experience that neither they—nor you—will forget! One int. set. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 50 minutes.
