This wild and clever spoof is based on a melodramatic novel attributed to Thomas Prest, the creator of Sweeney Todd ... In 1900 weary vampire Sir Francis Varney shows up at an inn in Italy

He plans to visit a haunted grotto and ask forgiveness from a lost love whose ghost is doomed to roam the landscape wearing a thin veil over her face

Varney forgets his mission and proceeds to snarl and snap at everyone in sight - especially an English damsel

Varney is shot, stabbed with a wooden stake and hanged

But still he survives!

The action gets sillier and sillier (and funnier and funnier) as Inspector Balsadella seeks answers for the strange goings on

The tongue in cheek style is a howl, and there are many optional, corny stage effects as well as a zany cast of characters
