Tabloid reporters Jack Harrison (Jeff Goldblum, Earth Girls Are Easy) and Gil Turner (Ed Begley Jr., She-Devil) are sent to Transylvania with two choices: find the Frankenstein monster—or find new jobs. But before the jumpy journalists can dig up their big story, they must first face the horrors of an extremely clumsy butler (Michael Richards, TV’s Seinfeld), a nymphomaniac vampire (Geena Davis, Beetlejuice) and a semi-mad doctor (Joseph Bologna, Blame It on Rio), as well as assorted mummies, werewolves and more Transylvanian oddballs. Can these two bumbling heroes unravel this monstrous mystery—or are they in for some very scary surprises? Co-starring John Byner (The Ant and the Aardvark), Carol Kane (TV’s Taxi), Jeffrey Jones (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), Norman Fell (TV’s Three’s Company), Donald Gibb (Revenge of the Nerds), Teresa Ganzel (The Toy) and writer/director Rudy De Luca (History of the World: Part I). Transylvania 6-5000 was the one and only feature film directed by legendary comedy writer and actor De Luca (Silent Movie, High Anxiety, Caveman, Life Stinks).
