No. Tracks: 16
Composed by: Hummie Mann


It was natural that producer, director, screenwriter, and star Mel Brooks should go to Hummie Mann for the score of "Dracula, Dead and Loving It" (1996). Wisely, Mann created a "serious" gothic score against the inanities of the satirical plot. He confessed that he saw many Dracula films and researched the musical approaches of other composers. "I listened to all the other Dracula scores: John Williams’, the Hammer score, Wojciech Kilar’s one for Coppola - I tried to come up with my own twist" Mann’s large gothic-sounding score is written for a substantial orchestra of 87 musicians and a choir of 16 singers, multi-tracked. "I played toward the power of Dracula, his ability to control people through hypnosis or move objects with a wave of his hand - to reinforce the idea that he was a force to be reckoned with."

Count Dracula, the Prince of Darkness, is dead and he's loving it but he's also in for some ego-puncturing problems and horrific surprises never encountered by Bela Lugosi or Gary Oldman. On Dracula's bumpy quest for blood, the blundering bloodsucker exhibits a dazzling and hilarious array of supernatural magic, including flying, superhuman falls, hanging upside-down, clinging to the ceiling, long-distance hypnosis, shadows with a mind of their own, and morphing into an accident-prone bat. Meanwhile, the immortal count's mortal enemy, Dr. Van Helsing, a brilliant professor of weird phenomena and world-famous vampire hunter, is busily masterminding the plan to expose and corner the bloodsucker who has infiltrated London's high society. Stars Leslie Nielsen, Dom Deluise and Mel Brooks. 1996
