What I liked

Marz Richards shines as Dracula, played as if part of a Mad magazine comic story, yet with a touch of pathos for a man out of his time. The séance has a nice surprising effect I didn’t see coming. Jeff Sumner as “The Creep” is delightfully creepy channeling the spirit of Dwight Fry by way of John Waters.

What I didn't like

Some of the song choices could be improved. The lyrics are projected on a screen inviting a sing a long from the audience, but not all of these songs are all that sing a long friendly. All in all though, an hour of silly monstrous fun!

My overall impression

Dracula’s Taste Test plays like some of your classic monster friends straight out of the Monster Mash song called you up for a night of drunken 80’s karaoke, and stand up comedy in Hollywood, and Hollywood being what it is, (witty, profane, hip, and irreverent), it’s only a matter of time before things get weird. Or, you know, weirder.
