What do you get when you try to cross classic horror movies with screwball comedy with a cast of all-stars from the 1980s?  If you said Transylvania 6-5000, you'd be right!

This is a movie about two tabloid journalists who go to Transylvania to investigate stories of Frankenstein's monster running loose, and once there the intrepid duo cross paths with vampires, wolfmen, mad scientists, and Michael Richards.

Transylvania 6-5000 stars Jeff Goldblum, Carol Kane, Ed Begley Jr., Jeffrey Jones, John Byner, and the first appearances of Geena Davis and Michael Richards.  It's a fun, light-hearted horror comedy romp written and directed by Rudy De Luca on behalf of the Dow Chemical Company who financed the picture in order to launder money out of Yugoslavia. (No joke.)  So if you like campy horror and screwball comedy, then this is the movie for you!
