Just like with life, movies on occasion, go through similar changes. Sometimes a film starts out serious, with the intent to scare the pants off people. Having the pants scared off someone might be a good thing if our date, GF/BF, or wifey/hubby is hot. But not all movies have what it takes to be scary just like there are people who might cause us to cringe if we witnessed their pants flying off.
Let’s take Dracula, (the Dirty Old Man) as an example of how movies can change. When the film started initial production, the intent was to create a scary film. A low budget, poor acting, and in an ironic twist of fate, an unusable audio track plagued the film. The ruined sound track may very well have saved the film from being recognized as one of the worst films ever. The producer, taking a step which I considered as a wise move, opted to re-dub the audio with a comedic tone. The new dialogue served to poke fun at the films lack of scary qualities.
He must have the same hair stylist as Don King.
Now all is not perfect in the world of a blood sucking dirty old man, dialogue timing being one of the more noticeable problems. One is left wondering at times where the associated body is for the voice we hear speaking the dialogue. And the puns! Oy! With that one word, I’ve said way to much and will say no more on the matter.
If you don’t mind wasting 80 minutes of your life to have an occasional laugh, then take a peek at the film.
