The Halloween That Almost Wasn't

Up next is The Halloween That Almost Wasn't, starring Judd Hirsch (Taxi) as Count Dracula. The other famous Halloween monsters have become complacent and no longer have their scary edge, leading people to care less about Halloween. Dracula tries to convince his fellow monsters to put the scare back into the holiday. Mariette Hartley costars as a witch. This originally aired as a special on ABC in 1979, with airings in syndication and The Disney Channel in subsequent years. It was retitled The Night Dracula Saved The World when released on VHS, and is currentlly out of print, never being officially released on DVD. You can find some copies of the VHS tape on eBay and other Internet sites from time to time. Enjoy!
