Vampire story

    We are in a Transylvanian graveyard near a village with an unpronouncable
    name. It is three nights before Halloween, 1880-somehting. Sarah, the
    beautiful teenage daughter of the local innkeeper, is out picking mushrooms
    when a pcak of very cool young vampires appears out of the mist, dancing with
    rapturous abandon. Sarah is entranced as a coffin rises from the ground
    containing the mesmerizing and extremely cool Count Von Krolock (alias
    Michael Crawford). The Count sings to Sarah seductively and promises to
    return for her at the total eclipse of the moon--when Sarah, in exhange for a
    small bite, can become Queen of the Vampires and rule the world. How can any
    small-ime girl resist? But then arrives Professor Abronsius, a rather
    intensely wacky vampire killer, with his handsome if sweetly dim assistant
    Alfred. Alfred is istantly smitten by Sarah and vice versa. Torn between
    Alfred and the Count, Sarah runs off to Krolock's castle, pursued by Alfred
    and Abronsius. There are ecstatic love duets, close encounters, unbridled
    dancing, wild comedy and, of course, bats and a madman named Boris. Sarah has
    to choose between earhly love with Alfred, or eternal passion with Krolock in
    the Vampire State Building. The climactic vampire dance crupts as the moon
    starts to eclipse, and everybody somehow manages to find happiness. .
