''Dracula: Dead and Loving It'' is, as of this writing, Creator/MelBrooks's final movie, released in 1995 and starring Creator/LeslieNielsen as Dracula. It starts as a young solicitor from London, Thomas Renfield (Creator/PeterMacNicol), meets the mysterious Count Dracula. He begins to suspect that something is amiss, but the Count hypnotizes him before he can escape. The pair then travel to London, where the Count has purchased a manor next to an insane asylum. He meets his next-door neighbors at an opera: Dr. Seward (Harvey Korman), his daughter Mina (Amy Yasbeck), her friend Lucy (Lysette Anthony), and Mina's fiancee Jonathan Harker (Steven Weber). Shortly thereafter, Lucy becomes mysteriously ill. This prompts Dr. Seward to seek advice from his old friend Dr. Abram Van Helsing (played by Creator/MelBrooks).

* VampiresAreSexGods: Upon turning into a vampire, Lucy changes from a proper upper-class Victorian English lady into a lusty temptress. Even being bitten is enough to make the equally patrician Mina more frisky than usual. Neither of their charms work on [[ChasteHero Jonathan]].
** Dracula himself, on the other hand, is the more traditional "[[AffablyEvil gentlemanly vampire]]".
*** Though [[LivingShadow his shadow]] is far more horny.

* CompellingVoice: Played with as Dracula attempts to give instructions, but has difficulty getting people to do exactly what he wants and controlling multiple people at the same time. Usually results in general goofy chaos, which is par for the course in a Mel Brooks flick. Dracula seems to do this randomly as well, like when he tries to use it to get an usher to relay a (not in any way secret) message.

* DecoyProtagonist: The film seems to set Renfield up like this - he is the solicitor from London who meets up with Dracula in the beginning, as opposed to Jonathan Harker from the novel. Then Renfield is made into Dracula's servant, and the focus of the film shifts to Jonathan and Mina.

It starts as a young solicitor from London, Thomas Renfield (Creator/PeterMacNichol), meets the mysterious Count Dracula. He begins to suspect that something is amiss, but the Count hypnotizes him before he can escape. The pair then travel to London, where the Count has purchased a manor next to an insane asylum. He meets his next-door neighbors at an opera: Dr. Seward (Harvey Korman), his daughter Mina (Amy Yasbeck), her friend Lucy (Lysette Anthony), and Mina's fiancee Jonathan Harker (Steven Weber). Shortly thereafter, Lucy becomes mysteriously ill. This prompts Dr. Seward to seek advice from his old friend Dr. Abram Van Helsing (played by Creator/MelBrooks).
