The basic plot features HunterOfMonsters Professor Abronsius and his timid, feeble assistant Alfred arriving in a Transylvanian village straight out of Film/HammerHorror. Alfred faalls in love with the innkeeper's daughter Sarah, and she toys with him a bit before running off to the local castle instead. Of course, said local castle is infested with vampires, lead by Count von Krolock and his CampGay son Herbert (who has hais own eye on Alfred), and Sarah prepares to become Krolock's new Queen of the Night at a lush vampire ball. Alfred, unaware that she's happier this way, valiantly tries to rescue her (when he's not [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl screaming like a girl]]). Meanwhile, Sarah's father is turned into a vampire himself, and he goes on to turn Magda, the beautiful and chaste maidservant he's been lusting after for years, into his undead girlfriend.

* EvilEyebrows: Especially in the German productions, all the vampires' makeup includes an exaggerated version of these [[spoiler:but strangely Sarah and Alfred are the only ones who don't get them after being turned]].

** Ensemble members walk down the aisles for "Ewigkeit", sometimes pretending to bite people as well. They're also present in the stalls for both act finales.

** Krolock's actors do the pre-show spiel of ''no electronic devices allowed'', then invites the audience to "sink with [him] into the darkness".
** Krolock also exits into the house after "Gott ist tot" in the Vienna revival.

This bit from "Für Sarah"Sarah".


Added DiffLines:

** Sarah shows her chops at manipulating people into giving her what she wants early on, in the innuendo-laden "Du bist wirklich sehr nett" when she cons Alfred out of a bath. This is no [[TheIngenue innocent maiden.]] At most, she's a GuileHero.

* BiTheWay: Krolock. Let's see...
** In the Vienna 2017 revival, he's singing "Gott ist tot" at both Sarah and Alfred.
** "Vor dem Schloss", once the sponge reappears onstage. Actors playing Alfred usually act entranced until the Graf makes a rough gesture with his hand.
** "Alfred's soul has long been mine!" in "He, Ho, Professor (Reprise)".
** "Carpe Noctem", in which... things... happen between the white vampire (Alfred's stand-in) and the ''shirtless'' black vampire (Krolock's stand-in).
** "Die unstillbare Gier": He's singing of three former lovers: a girl that died in his arms, a pastor's daughter, and Napoleon's pageboy.

** Alfred, maybe. Krolock's lines about him not truly knowing what he actually wants in "Vor dem Schloss" might be implying that he's either actively repressing or at least ignoring an attraction to men. Note that Krolock sings that after Herbert has appeared onstage. And while Herbert attacking him veers wildly between DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale and AndCallHimGeorge, Alfred's panicked reaction after Abronsius breaks out the microscope might imply that he was turned on. Not to mention some actors making his screaming while trying to fend Herbert off [[spoiler: and his screaming while being bitten by Sarah]] sound ''sexual''.
