Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this parody of classic horror films set in 1897 (the year "Dracula" was published), the operatic tenor Count Felix Teleke (Michal Doclomanski) and the winsome Salsa Verde (Evelyna Steimarova) are in the forbidding castle of Baron Gore (Milos Kopecky), located close to Werewolfville. The sinister Baron lusts after Salsa but also feels a deep passion for invention and has hired a crazed inventor (Rudolf Hruskinsky) to work full time. Instead of Frankenstein or a vampire, the inventor comes up with a television, a tape recorder, and a camera -- all crafted in art deco style. When the operatic Count hits high "C" and the TV monitor shatters, a voice resounds with the message "The fault will be rectified." These modern gadgets steal the scenes and help to balance the fairly standard interpretations of the protagonists and the predictable script.
