Dracula (Wolf) and his three brides are en route to an event. When a group of Vatican agents abduct the count, it is up to his brides to save their husband from a fate worse than undeath.

With Halloween just around the corner, this short film makes for an interesting viewing.

It is spoken in Romanian (the vampires) and Italian (the Vatican agents) with English subtitles throughout. This gives the quirky film a sense of the exotic and the characters a believability that would not have been achieved with the acting alone.

The opening credits are beautifully gothic and masterful in their simplicity.

Give Danse Macabre 11 minutes of your time  if you like short films that are a little bit silly and a lot left of centre. Screen it at your Halloween bash and it will be the talking point of your party.
