  • [theme music]

  • -Renfield, is that you?

  • If I catch you parading around in my cape again,

  • there'll be trouble.

  • Well, I wonder where he could be hiding.

  • [screams]

  • -What's the matter, master?

  • What's wrong?

  • -Nothing's wrong, you fool.

  • Get off!

  • -Was it another one of your nightmares?

  • -What?

  • Don't be ridiculous.

  • Count Dracula does not have nightmares.

  • -Was it the one where Magda gets staked and her hideous, evil

  • ghost comes back to haunt you?

  • -Mention that again and I will remove your privileges.

  • -I don't have any privileges.

  • -Then I shall find something else to remove.

  • -I'm telling you, Vlad.

  • Tonight will go down in history as the greatest Halloween ever.

  • -Yeah, about that--

  • -A spooky old castle, a family of real vampires.

  • I mean, what more could we ask for?

  • I bet you've got some really scary stuff planned, right?

  • -Well actually--

  • -I admit I've pulled some legendary Halloween

  • stunts before.

  • But me and you together, think of the mayhem we could cause.

  • -I'm sorry, Robin.

  • I'm going to the school party.

  • -What?

  • -Everyone else is going.

  • -We're not everyone else, Vlad.

  • We're different.

  • People may think we're freaks, but tonight we're not.

  • At Halloween we rule.

  • -But I don't want to rule.

  • I wan to fit in.

  • -So I thought maybe we

  • Cook some food.

  • Watch some telly.

  • Dad?

  • -Hm?

  • Whatever you think.

  • Just can't shake this feeling that I've forgotten something.

  • -Don't know why.

  • Nothing special about tonight.

  • -Hold still.

  • It keeps on tearing off.

  • -This is stupid.

  • I don't want to go dressed as a loo roll.

  • -You're supposed to be a mummy.

  • -Got it.

  • Why don't you go as a vampire?

  • What was I thinking?

  • Where would you get a vampire costume at this hour?

  • And on Halloween?

  • -Oh, is it Halloween?

  • -Shh!

  • I don't want dad to know.

  • -Why not?

  • -Halloween affects dad like a lit match

  • at a firework factory.

  • -Even a sausage through the heart wouldn't subdue him.

  • -You mean a stake.

  • -Oh, yes.

  • You see the Count has banned me from using that word.

  • That word and bunfight.

  • -Sunlight.

  • -Mm-hmm.

  • Bunfight and sausage.

  • -Great.

  • We can't even talk about it.

  • This is the worst Halloween ever.

  • -Look, dad's got a whole trunk full of old clothes

  • stashed up in the attic.

  • I bet I could find some great scary outfits for the party.

  • Better than this anyway.

  • -Real vampire clothes?

  • Are they black?

  • -Oh wow.

  • Spooky.

  • -Exactly.

  • It's weird and very dangerous.

  • So don't touch anything.

  • -There aren't any spiders, are there?

  • -Probably.

  • Why?

  • -Just starting, because Robin's terrified of them.

  • Aren't you, Robin?

  • Robin?

  • Robin?

  • -Boo!

  • -Idiot!

  • This attic's awesome.

  • Wow, what's this?

  • -I don't know, and I don't want to know.

  • Put it back.

  • -Hieroglyphics.

  • -Chloe, I don't think a 10 year old girl can

  • translate complex Egyptian hiero--

  • -Danger.

  • Do not open.

  • Run, hide.

  • -I told you not to touch anything.

  • -Chill out, will you?

  • It's just a biscuit tin.

  • What's the worst that can happen?

  • -That.

  • -I told you not to open it.

  • Now look what you've done.

  • -What's it say?

  • -Have we won a holiday?

  • -No, Robin.

  • We've awoken an ancient curse.

  • -All day I've sensed impending evil.

  • And now I can smell it.

  • -It's probably those eggs.

  • -Perhaps.

  • What's the date?

  • -It's the, um, the Friday.

  • -No, Jonathan, the date.

  • -It's, uh, the um--

  • -Well?

  • -Trick or treat!

  • -Ahh!

  • Get back, bloodsuckers.

  • Don't force me to use this.

  • WOMAN: What on earth are you doing?

  • -No, I thought that they were-- Nothing.

  • -Come away form there, children.

  • That man's not very well.

  • Trick or treat, of course.

  • You know what this means, Jonathan?

  • -Only five days till bonfire night?

  • -It's Halloween.

  • -A terrible curse on you and your family, foul fiends.

  • From midnight tonight you will be stripped or your evil powers

  • and reduced to the status of mere mortal breathers, ha ha.

  • -Oh great.

  • How am I going to explain this?

  • Sorry dad, but we've accidentally

  • awoken an ancient curse, and we're all

  • going to be turned into normal living-- hang on.

  • Normal.

  • Robin, you're a genius.

  • -I am?

  • -Don't you know what this means?

  • I'm going to have a normal family.

  • -We can go on camping trips together.

  • -Barbecues in the summer.

  • -Family bike rides.

  • -But think of what you're going to lose.

  • -What, fangs and a dad who turns into a bat?

  • Who's going to miss that?

  • -Me.

  • -Oh.

  • -Oh?

  • What do you mean oh?

  • -Come here.

  • CHLOE: If three screams are heard from your family

  • after sunset tonight, you'll be freed from the curse.

  • -But I don't want to be freed.

  • I like the curse.

  • CHLOE: The pyramid will turn with each scream.

  • If it gets to three, that's it.

  • Game over.

  • -Like that's gonna happen.

  • Vampires aren't scared of anything .

  • -Ahh!

  • -Much.

  • -You do that in an hour, and you're in big trouble.

  • -Great.

  • My only chance to be normal, and I've

  • got to stop people screaming at Halloween.

  • -At least your dad doesn't know it's Halloween.

  • [MUSIC - BOBBY (BORIS) PICKETT AND THE CRYPT-KICKERS,

  • "THE MONSTER MASH"]

  • -Oh, no.

  • -Oh, wicked.

  • -Think he remembered.

  • -Ah Vlad!

  • There you are.

  • Renfield, take a break.

  • -Ah, thank you master.

  • -That's long enough.

  • Back to work.

  • VLAD: What's going on?

  • -It's Christmas.

  • What does it look like?

  • Can't you feel the pride stirring in your chest?

  • Tonight we celebrate our vampire heritage.

  • Hundreds of years of history and culture.

  • -I had no idea you breathers could be so tasteful.

  • -Good.

  • You have fun tonight.

  • Unfortunately, we've got other plans.

  • ROBIN: Nothing that can't easily be dropped.

  • -Splendid!

  • The bloodletting-- the fun begins

  • at six when the sun has set. ROBIN: Should be a scream.

  • -I saw fangs and a cape.

  • It was an easy mistake to make.

  • JONATHAN: Dad, you nearly whisked an 8 year old.

  • -I was acting on instinct, son.

  • VAN HELSING: As a vampire slayer,

  • I've developed finely tuned senses.

  • -Dad.

  • VAN HELSING: Heightened awareness

  • that warns me when trouble is brewing.

  • -Dad.

  • VAN HELSING: And at Halloween.

  • It's at its strongest.

  • Almost like a sixth sense.

  • -Dad, your trousers are on fire.

  • -Ahh!

  • -Well spotted, son.

  • -That's it.

  • You're definitely staying in tonight.

  • -Dad?

  • THE COUNT: Not now, Ingrid.

  • Can't you see I'm engaged in heavy manual labor?

  • Two inches lower, Renfield.

  • INGRID: I need a costume for the school party.

  • -Why?

  • What happened to that dress thing?

  • -Ruined.

  • I found it in Renfield's wardrobe

  • with all the stitching burst.

  • -Well there's a simple solution to this.

  • You'll have to get a job.

  • -Me, work?

  • -It'd do you good to get out of the castle.

  • You can be someone else's problem.

  • -Why can't Vlad get a job?

  • INGRID: Because he has one already.

  • Heir to my throne.

  • Oh dear.

  • Well that's a day's wages you owe me.

  • And you can forget about going to any parties until I get it.

  • -The night starts here.

  • -Just six short hours and you'll be normal.

  • -I better go home and let mum and dad know what we're doing.

  • Then we can figure out how to make your dad scream.

  • -You mean stop him scream?

  • -That's what I said, wasn't it?

  • -Zoltan, I need your advice.

  • I've got this problem.

  • -Bathe it in warm water and keep it bandaged overnight.

  • That works for me.

  • -No, it's should you do what's better for yourself,

  • or what's better for your friends?

  • -Most would say you should put the well

  • being of others before your own.

  • Look at me.

  • I've never selfish, now I'm stuffed,

  • ignored, mounted on wheels.

  • -Thanks, Zoltan.

  • -Glad to be of assistance.

  • -One more thing.

  • Do you know if the count's scared of anything?

  • Something that might make him scream?

  • -Well, only golf balls.
