It's  backyard project; that means it's not gonna be on the IMDB unless some distributor is stupid enough to pick it up.  You might not that poor Andrew here gets a LOT of such films, like, say, Jacker 2.  And they generally suck pretty harshly.

Now, to my point... SIMON?  RICHTER?  They're not only violating cereal tradmarks, they're ripping off the Castelvania games as well!  Where are Trever and Alucard, hmm?

You can get a copy of the necronomicon on ebaY! Right now there is one going for about $90.00...

Who knew the Curse of Count Chocula could be so accurate...

I wouldn't call it ripping off the Castlevania games.  More of an homage to them.  I'm glad somebody noticed.

As for who had the idea, it actually originated with a sketch on The Man Show.  They were doing a skit about movies that no guy would ever want to see.  One of them was Count Chocula: The Movie starring Forest Whittacker as the count.

When I heard that, I was rather shocked.  I thought a count chocula movie with Forest Whitacker sounded awesome, and set out to prove that people would indeed want to see a count chocula movie.  And thus, history was made.

I have to say, even with Andrew's mostly negative review, for some reason I want to see this film more than any other film reviewed on this website... that line about Sarah Michelle Gellar I thought was hilarious, and the description of the film itself makes it sound rather entertaining!

Well, what with being involved in this film, it is impossible for me to give my own review without being incredibly biased.  Suffice it to say, it is indeed a "backyard" film, but I've heard rumor that the film has now become a drinking game on college campuses across the country (somewhat of a compliment, even given the fact that college kids will drink for anything).  In order to play, you can do one of three things: 1.) Everytime you spot a continuity error, take a drink [recommended for severe alcoholics].  For example, the aforementioned hair changes on Amber, Heinrich's beard/no beard, etc.  2.) Everytime you spot a specific product placement, take a drink [recommended for moderate alcoholics].  For example, there are many shots of Pepsi bottles always with the label facing directly at the camera.  Believe it or not, the product placement was entirely unintentional - we just really liked Pepsi.  3.) Everytime the character of Mark puts his hands to his head as if he has a headache or is completely fed up with the plot, take a drink. [recommended for lightweights who like to sip]  I don't know why, but this character did this alot throughout the film and it was only after the second viewing that we noticed the character of Mark must be close to an aneurysm.  Anyways, that's my complete nonsense of a contribution to the message boards of this film and I take my leave now (ridiculous accent and all), but not before a few comments more.
All in all, I had a good time shooting the film and it was quite an experience.  Keep in mind this was the first time making a film for all involved (I'll readily admit that it's quite apparent), but it was a heartfelt effort from cast and crew alike.  In addition to playing VonBratwurst and Zombie #3, I also tried my hand at putting the soundtrack together for the film.  If I may indulge in my own little shilling here, copies of the soundtrack are available through myself.  Send an email to if you have any interest.  Take care and thanks for watching the film (even if it is just to get drunk).  Cheers!

Well, I know it's no gem, but everyone who was involved in the movie had a great time and I think most of us are even...dare I say... proud of the final product.  I did a  lot of the production work and played Count Chocula as well as one of the zombies (sorry about my dancing everyone, not one of my hobbies).  Anyway, it was definatly a "backyard film", and our first swing at it at that.  To anyone who bothers watching it, thank you, and I hope you enjoy it.  The sound isn't the best it a lot of places, but there is a lot of funny dialouge in there if you give it a chance.

I am dating the man who plays Count Chocula.  I have to say that despite the fact that this movie was clearly not a Blockbuster, I have to admit that I was a little sad that no one asked me to be in this movie.  Sure, I was away at school for most of the filming( I think it actually started filming my Freshman year and wrapped up my Senior year. Hence Amberís hair style changes), but I think a part could have been created for me.  Who do you have to sleep with to get a part in a Green Pastures production?!?!?

Anyway, I grew up with most of these boys, and I am darn proud of all of them!  Good Job! I love you guys!

After 6 months of therapy, the firing of 2 agents, and 3 suicide attempts I've finally come to grips with being in this movie. I'm baffled however. I think its absolutely absurd that someone actually watched this to review it. As if it has any value!

But it was a really fun time for all of us involved. We all really love movies and blah, blah, blah.  Enter some more sentimental, obligitory bulls**t about how wonderful it was here...

Yes, my hair changed. It was 3 years later. A painful learning process? Yes. Next time, get a wig!

  I just saw that all of my buddies wrote in and said some s**t.  Me being the only actual actor of the film, I can't wait to hear about that remark, I've come to find myself able to withstand any and all negative reveiws of the curse.  As it's known as.  Not really.  I totally just made that up.
  Anywho, I loved making this movie.  We had Mel (Amber) constantly complaining because she almost died from a misquito attack, actually happened during the cemetary scene.  We had constant laughter at Mark (Chocula himself) who was playing a not-so-straight vampire.  And finally we had the awesome, radical, super studly Trevor Massatt on the set at all times, even if I wasn't in the scene.  Because we had fun doing this.
  I hope people enjoyed this film.  I did and still do.  Also be ready for green pastures production of "Shredded Wheat"  PLUG, PLUG, PLUG.  Should be finished when hell freezes over.  
  Now I have to go beat the s**t out of all my "friends"  QUOTATIONS!  that decided to visit this gnarley page and not tell me you could write stuff.  Which they all did.  Don't worry though, guys and gals, they'll get theirs.  Oh, yes.  They'll get theirs.  Mwa ha ha ha...
  If you've read this far, you are one in a million.  Which is pretty much everyone really.  We're all unique in are own individual ways.  Like how I'm so kickass.  Wait is that one word or two?  A true kick ass doesn't care how he spells things.  Weren't we talking about a movie or something?  See you from the screen.

I enjoyed this movie more than a lot of big budget films.  If it weren't for some audio issues I would say this is perfect as is.

Not to pick on anyone, but I have noticed a very peculiar thing:
Comments on Reader Reviews are made up almost entirely of "guests".
Stop being "guests" and jump onto the Maind Board and be regular members, why not?

I have no idea what this means.

I noticed that as well.  I think that most of these comments were moved from the old board and most of the posts were from before the user was required to post - hence everyone being guests.
